GIGABYTE is well-known for its motherboards and graphics cards in the PC industry. Now, GIGABYTE is stepping into the storage market with the launch of its new UD (Ultra-Durable) PRO SSD lineup.

Instead of releasing a high-end NVMe PCIe based SSD, GIGABYTE chooses to make the UD PRO as an entry-level SATA SSD. There are only two storage capacities currently, 256 GB or 512 GB. The SSD will be using Toshiba’s BiCS3 3D TLC NAND flash and Phison’s PS3110-S10 memory controller.


According to GIGABYTE, the new SSD can have sequential read speed up to 530 MB/s and write up to 500 MB/s. The 256 GB model has random IOPS at 70,000 (read) and 40,000 (write), while the 512 GB model is higher at 80,000 (read) and 75,000 (write). Both of them have MTBF rated at around 1,800,000 hours and endurance at 100 TBW or 200 TBW respectively, which are a bit less than other competitors.

The new UD PRO series SSDs will be available soon on various resellers. The 256 GB model will cost $68.99 USD (MSRP) and 512 GB model will cost $119.99 USD (MSRP). For more information, you can visit the product pages or GIGABYTE’s press release.
