SK Hynix, the second largest memory maker in the world, has today announced its latest NVMe PCIe Gen 4.0 SSD – the Platinum P41. The new Platinum P41 offers increased performance over the previous Gold P31 series, offering top-end PCIe 4.0 speeds. 

The new SK Hynix Platinum P41 is the company’s first Gen 4.0 SSD, with 176-NAND layers and capacity ranging from 500GB to 2TB.

The SSD uses SK Hynix’s own Aries controller, and is capable of up to 7,000 MB/s sequential read speeds and 6,500 MB/s sequential write speeds, as well as random read/write speeds of 1400K and 1300K IOPS. Finally, the SSD will also offer industry-leading endurance, rated for 1200TBW.

The SK Hynix Platinum P41 PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs will be available sometime in Q1 2022 and pricing is still to be confirmed.
