It's been quite some time since we looked at a Silicon Power SSD even though they were one of the first companies to enter the SSD market. Quietly through the years Silicon Power has released quite a number of SSDs. Its early products were very exciting especially some of the SLC releases that paired Indilinx and Jmicron controllers with single-level cell flash.


The new Silicon Power Slim S70 SSD keeps the excitement going. This is the first retail drive to hit our lab with firmware 5.0.4 already on it. It's also one of the few SandForce based drives shipping in a 7mm form factor for ultrabook use. The price is also attractive, but we've seen better in the past.


Let's dig right in and take a look at the specification before we see the drive. We'll then run the S70 through our new benchmark tests and see how it performs.
