The Silicon Power XS70 is the company’s newest PCIe 4.0 SSD branded and purpose-built for the high-performance gaming demographic. It is a direct successor to the PCIe Gen3 model (XD80), offering double the performance, and NVMe 1.4 support.
Available in the M.2 2280 (80mm) form factor, the XS70 is also the newest drive to feature the Phison PS5018-E18 controller (alongside drives like the Kingston KC3000 and the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus) with updated firmware and newer Micron B47R 3D NAND TLC memory. Users can also install this in their next-gen consoles (though Silicon only mentions support for the PS5) to add up to a generous 4TB of speedy NVMe storage with beefy heatsink included.
