Reliable. Durable. Gold.

Gold S31 SSD

The Gold S31 is the ultimate in SATA performance, jam-packed with leading-edge SK hynix technology. Our 40 years of semiconductor expertise have culminated in an SSD as precious as gold. Upgrade to the best in SATA speeds, upgrade to the Gold S31. (“S” for SATA, “3” meaning 3rd Generation, and “1” as it is the first SK hynix brand SATA SSD)

First-Class SATA Speeds

A 3rd generation SATA SSD, the Gold S31 has maximized 560 MB/s read and 525 MB/s write speeds. Pairing this with our proprietary SK hynix HYPERWRITE cache technology, utilizing original SLC buffers, allows our optimized speeds to deliver sustained performance.

SK hynix Quartz Controller

Our own Quartz controller is developed in-house to optimize performance, using LPDDR3 DRAM cache for FTL table mapping and interfacing directly with our 3D TLC flash memory. In short, we have fine-tuned our designs and controller for ultimate speed and efficiency.

Easy Installation & Migration

Seamless in Laptops, Powerful in Desktops

 

The Gold S31 2.5"/7mm SATA form factor allows for easy installation across multiple devices, making upgrading a breeze. Pair that with our custom SK hynix edition Macrium cloning software and even first-time users can have their system up and running with 4 simple clicks of the mouse.

Durable to the Core

The Gold S31 is forged for endurance. We lead the industry in sustained performance, putting each product through its paces. Enduring rigorous 1,000-hour stress tests the Gold S31 achieved an impressive 600-TBW (Terabytes Written, 1TB Standard) rating. We are so confident in the performance of our products each one is given our SK hynix guaranteed 5-year warranty.
