If you are in the market for a new SSD, Gigabyte has announced its new UD PRO series of SSDs. These new drives use a SATA-III interface, which might not be as fast as those using NVMe, but with built-in DDR3 for its buffer cache, the drives promise to offer greater performance than those without. This buffer cache also removes the need for overprovisioning, so even as you fill the capacity offered by the drives, the performance will remain stable. The drives also use 3D TLC NAND flash, offering greater bit capacity than 2D TLC flash memory, and when combined with the optimized controller and firmware, should provide great performance as well.

The two UD PRO drives offered have 256 GB and 512 GB capacities and up to 530 MBs read and 500 MB/s write speeds. Both drives come with a 3-year warranty, or 100 Terabytes Written for the 256 GB drive and 200 TBW for the 512 GB. The 256 GB will have an MSRP of $68.99 while the 512 GB is set at $119.99.
