Silicon Power launches XPower XS70 SSD

Data Recovery SSD Silicon Power

Silicon Power's XS70 is also known as the XPower XS70 SSD. It is rated up to 7.3 GBps of bandwidth, which is effectively the limit of consumer PCIe 4.0 SSDs. This SSD drive is capable of up to 1 million IOPS, which matches expectations, and comes with a five-year warranty. The endurance is rated for up to 700 TB of write data per TB of capacity (with the exception of 3PBW at 4TB). This rating is more than double that of previous PCIe 4.0 SSDs. Silicon Power markets the XS70 as a gaming SSD drive, with specific attention given to the attractive aluminum heatsink.

Silicon Power produces mostly Phison-controlled drives, and the XS70 SSD is certainly the premium part of their product stack. The company positions it as a PlayStation 5 (PS5) option. The XS70 uses the common M.2 2280 form factor, with an attractive, aluminum heatsink in black and silver and comes in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities. The Silicon Power XS70 SSD uses a Phison E18 controller with Micron 176-layer TLC NAND. The solid-state drive also includes DRAM Cache Buffer to improve performance.

The company says the XS70 supports RAID recovery technology and LDPC coding, meaning it will work well in a RAID configuration, where consumers can use two or more drives to deliver better performance or higher availability. But the Silicon Power XS70 has no hardware encryption, nor does it come with a software dashboard for the users to manage or customize its settings.

Silicon Power XPower XS70 SSDs can be a good option for those wanting a fast, heatsink-ready NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD to put inside their desktop computer for a game console. The SSD drives have everything users would want in a high-performance SSD, but SSD can be corrupted, making critical user data inaccessible. Then the owners of the Silicon Power XPower XS70 SSDs will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider to restore their irreplaceable files.
