The 2.5-inch drive supports the SATA III interface based on 3D NAND Flash technology, and is now available in 1 TB, 500 GB and 250 GB capacities on Amazon US. All key components in Gold S31, from NAND Flash and built-in controller to DRAM and firmware, were designed and produced by SK hynix. The in-house components are built for robust performance and reliability.
Gold S31 will be offered exclusively on Amazon US this year, but is expected to expand to other North American and European markets starting next year, when a PCIe version of the SSD can also be expected.
“SK hynix has been supplying global PC OEMs with high-quality, competitive SSDs since 2013, leveraging its proven quality and reliability as the world’s leading memory provider,” said Kook Won, Head of Global Sales & Marketing Strategy of SK hynix. “The launch of Gold S31 with Amazon US will be a meaningful opportunity to expand the experience of SK hynix’s SSDs to consumers.”
