SK Hynix Platinum P41 review: “As good as any of the best Gen 4 engines”

SK Hynix Platinum P41 SSD

The new SK Hynix Platinum P41 is aimed squarely at the best high-performance M.2 SSD for gaming. This is a version of the SK Hynix engine. But it shouldn’t really come as a surprise. SK Hynix is ​​not well known as a consumer brand. But it’s definitely one of the heavyweights when it comes to making the bits that go into SSDs, like flash memory chips.

As it happens, SK Hynix has just picked up the entire Intel SSD business (except for the odd Optane bit, which simply shuts down completely). So it’s about to be the biggest noise in SSDs. Enter, therefore, the new high-performance M.2 engine. It is truly on the cutting edge of technology currently available. Which means that it is based on the PCIe Gen 4 4-lane interface. The Gen 5 drives, computers, and console platforms required to support it are still a long way off.
