Silicon Power has released the UD85 series of NVMe SSDs, which are entry-level solutions. New items use the PCIe 4.0 interface and are offered in versions with a capacity of 250 and 500 GB and 1 and 2 TB.
The manufacturer states that the UD85s comply with the NVMe 1.4 specification. These are bufferless SSDs with support for Host Memory Buffer (HMB) technology. The drives support SLC caching and offer sequential read speeds of up to 3600 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 2800 MB/s.
UD85 drives support Low Density Clearance Check (LDPC) code for accurate data transfer and reliable data access, while operating in RAID mode protects data from drive failure. They also have built-in E2E data protection and automatic error correction (ECC) for consistent data transmission.
Along with the UD85 drives, the company offers the SP Toolbox software. The utility provides access to information about the drive (SMART results, wear level, etc.), allows you to change settings, run a diagnostic test and securely erase data.
Novelties are not equipped with heat sinks. The manufacturer grants a five-year guarantee on the drives of the UD85 series.
