Solidigm Introduces the P44 Pro Solid State Drive
Solidigm, Intel's former SSD division acquired by SK Hynix, has introduced the P44 Pro solid-state storage drive (SSD), a high-performance client SSD for today’s most demanding workloads. The Solidigm P44 Pro SSD is available in 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities.
The manufacturer did not share the detailed characteristics of the presented SSD and doesn’t specify which controller and flash memory chips are used in the P44 Pro series drives. But the company states that The P44 Pro SSD delivers high PCIe Generation 4.0 performance, with up to 7,000 MB/s sequential read speeds. Solidigm indicates that the P44 Pro SSD drives can achieve these rated speeds within a 5.3-watt power envelope. According to Solidigm, the new SSD provides a good combination of speed and efficiency in testing, meeting or exceeding published performance specifications.
The Solidigm Synergy software that is free to download from the company’s website works with the P44 Pro to optimize performance and close the gap between the host and storage device. The software enables users to view drive health reports and trigger useful manual functions.
The company touts the Solidigm P44 Pro as the most powerful client SSD Solidigm has launched to date and the premier enthusiast SSD on the market. The manufacturer also positions the NVMe SSDs of the P44 Pro series as “for modern gaming PCs and workstations“ and states that the P44 Pro drives meet all the requirements of the PlayStation 5 game consoles so they could be an attractive upgrade option.
Nevertheless, the Solidigm P44 Pro SSDs have a limited number of write cycles, so the ability to write to them will eventually wear out, leading to potential SSD data loss. Then the owners of Solidigm P44 Pro SSDs will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider to get their irreplaceable files back from HDD.
