Starting with the M10 M.2 2280, which will slot right into M.2-based Ultrabooks and motherboards based on Intel's 87/97 chipsets. Silicon Power has deployed a "high-quality controller and MLC NAND flash chips" that provide the M10 M.2 2280 with the ability of up to 520MB/sec reads, and 330MB/sec writes. When it comes to 4K random read/writes, we have up to 40,000 IOPS.

 

The M10 mSATA SSD has the same 520MB/sec and 330MB/sec speeds for read/writes, as well as 40,000 IOPS. Silicon Power sees this new mSATA-based solid state drive being used by heavy gamers, professionals and DIY enthusiasts.
