With M.2 and mSATA SSDs being quite the hot piece of technology right now, Silicon Power has unveiled its latest M10 M.2 2280 and M10 mSATA solid state drives. These two new drives are based on the SATA 6Gbps standard, supporting Intel's Smart Response Technology (ISRT) that offers "upgrade solutions that saves consumers a lot of time and space".

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.
