Review SK Hynix Gold P31 M.2 NVMe SSD Review: High-performance, Unprecedented Efficiency

Some nits to picK pick (because, clearly, I'm more likely to fumble when I'm pointing out someone else's fumbles)
  • Spec table column headers both say 1TB, the first one should be 500GB (or 512?)
  • Paragraph below spec table says "though the 500GB model suffers a minimal performance loss with a write speed that is 100MBps lower" but the table shows the 500GB model having a faster sequential write speed. Which one is correct?
That aside - I'm definitely intrigued that it's competitive speed-wise, and manages that impressive level of power efficiency. I think this one might be on my list for a future PC.

Thanks, I actually saw that too not too long ago and already alert the team on the errors. The write speeds should be swapped. 3,200 on the 1TB and 3,100 on the 500GB. Correction should go live shortly.

One more possible point of contention.

The article states that the P31 Gold does not support AES-256.

But SK Hynix's own website for the P31 gold states that it does:
https://skhynix.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/folders/48000658600#faq_title
"All SSDs from SK hynix come with the AES 256-bit encryption feature. "

I have seen manufacturer's documentation be wrong, but is there any way to test to see if it does or not?
Nice find. This wasn't posted nor articulated at the time of publishing. We will update to include this.

And what is benefit for user in using 128 layers SSD? Nothing! Drives even cheaper to produce are not cheaper then any other.
Why then?
