SK hynix Inc. today announced availability of the "Platinum P41" PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD that distills technical excellence driven by unmatched speeds and reliability. The Platinum series represents the company's flagship retail lineup geared towards gamers and content creators looking to turbo-boost PC performance. Launched as SK hynix's first PCIe 4.0 SSD built with advanced 176-layer NAND flash memory, the Platinum P41 is now available for purchase on Amazon in the U.S. in 500 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB capacity options.

Designed to excel among PCIe 4.0 SSDs, the Platinum P41 offers sequential read speeds up to 7,000 MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 6,500 MB/s with an industry-leading endurance rating of up to 1,200 TBW. The Platinum P41 also provides further assurance of reliability with an SK hynix in-house "Aries" controller, which in itself contributes to the superior read/write speeds.
"We are delighted to introduce the Platinum P41, the first of our Platinum series of SSDs to drive the strongest PCIe Gen4 bandwidth experience for computing needs. P41 also inherits the power efficiency and stability of our existing lineup, keeping with SK hynix's rich history of delivering excellent solutions for consumer electronics," Dae Jung Cho, Head of SSD Marketing at SK hynix, said.

Additionally, the Platinum P41 is capable of up to 1,400K IOPS in random reads and up to 1,300K IOPS in random writes, the highest-end throughput on the PCIe 4.0 interface. The P41 undergoes 1,000 hours of high-temperature operating life (HTOL) testing to ensure reliability, where it has achieved an extensive 1.5 million hours in mean time between failures (MTBF).

The Platinum P41 comes with a five-year warranty from SK hynix. Pricing is seen below for the drives:
Great performance and the prices aren't too bad.

    I bought three of their 1TB P31 Gold drives (one of them just a few days ago). Great drives. 
    Don't have a system for PCIe 4.0 yet though

    The 2TB price is pretty good. I hadn't really considered going that high since a year ago they seemed to be in the $350-$400 range last I looked. With limited slots in motherboards for M.2 it's always good to go big for storage.
