The latest new SSD to come from the company is called the E20 and the SSD is really fast. The E20 uses a special RAM cache function to speed the drives operation and reduce bottlenecks.




The SSD has a DRAM cache that enhances the read and write performance of the storage device. Silicon Power claims that the SSD is good for read speed up to 250MB/s and write speed up to 230MB/s.

The capacities include 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.


The SSD also has SMART support ad uses a circuit current sensor to tell when power is fluctuating to the drive and help prevent your data from being lost. Other features include wear leveling, RoHS compliance, resistance to shock and vibration, as no noise production. The SSD measures 100mm x 69.85mm x 9.5mm. Pricing is unknown at this time.
