Right now at Newegg, you can find the Solidigm P41 Plus 1TB SSD over at Newegg for its best price to date. This SSD usually goes for around $44 but is discounted right now to $34 putting the final price at 3 cents per GB.
We reviewed the Solidigm P41 Plus 1TB SSD in late 2022 and largely regarded it as fairly decent performance-wise, lingering in the midrange for a drive in its class. It comes with a great warranty, however, from Solidigm that’s worth mentioning.
Solidigm P41 Plus 1TB SSD: now $34 at Newegg (was $44)
The Solidigm P41 Plus 1TB SSD is only $34 today at Newegg—its lowest price to date. It has an M.2 2280 form factor and can reach maximum read/write speeds of 4125/2950 Mbps.

Teamgroup has low 33 per Tb tlc nand ;)Reply
Great price for the best qlc on the market(400 cycles). the 2tb is $75, think I would go for thatReply
Who is going to bring these prices to 4TB ?Reply
Also why no 3TB drives ? - I think there's is a market there for at least one brand to have a niche.
These P41 Plus drives are bretty dang good, BTW.Reply
'Running a 2TB as boot device, and another in an Gen4x1 for games.
These are arguably the best DRAMless QLC NVMe drives,
that have come to market.
P41 Pluses are basically SK Hynix's 'update' to the Intel 670p.
Intel sold-off their NAND branch to SK Hynix,
and SK Hynix spun-off "Solidigm".
They do slow down some as they're near-full.
Though, I believe that's a trait of DRAMless drives in general.
It's worth noting that you don't lose a 'ton' of performance in x1 Gen4.
I have 2 QLC Gen4 drives in "short-trace" PCIe x1 adapters, connected to X570 chipset.

Admittedly, it's a lil difficult to 'retain' the "short-trace" x1 adapters but, on X570, etc (that offer Gen4x1 slots)
it's a cost-effective way to add storage that's well-faster than any SATA SSD.
no, not really, better to say Solidigm is a subsidiary of SK Hynix that Hynix is currently working to absorb inhouse. That deal does not fully close till 2025 and then I would expect solidigm to become Hynix fully.LabRat 891 said:SK Hynix spun-off "Solidigm".
In the second phase of the transaction, SK hynix will acquire from Intel the remaining assets in relation to its NAND business, including IP related to the manufacture and design of NAND flash wafers, R&D employees for NAND flash wafers, the Dalian facility workforce, and the other associated tangible / intangible assets. Closing of the second phase is expected to occur in or after March 2025 with the remaining payment of US $2 billion, which will complete the entire deal.

I (inaccurately) used "spin-off" synonymously withcyrusfox said:no, not really, better to say Solidigm is a subsidiary of SK Hynix that Hynix is currently working to absorb inhouse. That deal does not fully close till 2025 and then I would expect solidigm to become Hynix fully.
"Subsidiary" or "Daughter Corporation".
It would seem in the US (in-particular), that the distinction is *not* pedantic but a Legal Definition.
However, the circumstances of Solidigm's creation further 'muddy' the precisely-proper term usage:
Solidigm became a standalone U.S. company under SK hynix in December 2021.Now, we're far-beyond my comprehension of
Legal vs. Academic vs. Colloquial definitions.
How can one be "Standalone" and "under"?
Even Cambridge and Merrim-Webster give conflicting definitions...
I've thoroughly proven (to myself) that I did use the wrong term. However,
It's no wonder ESL folks have such issues with English.
English doesn't make (consistent) sense, a lot. o_O
They are stand-alone in that they have their own fab, software, and driver support teams, Hynix bought the whole business from Intel, R&D, fabrication, and all the support staff). Intel Nand/Solidigm is not yet a brand name/shell company like say Crucial(Micron) or Lexar(Micron now Longsys Electronics Co., Ltd). In this way they are an independent entity. I am thinking the stand alone bit is helpful for business continuity and tax reasons as they transition away from Intel to Hynix holdings. But I really don't know or understand that all that much myself.LabRat 891 said:How can one be "Standalone" and "under"?
Now they are "Under" Hynix in that Hynix covers all the financing as well as product decisions. Solidigm is not independent in terms of future roadmap, or likely even volume/manufacturing decisions, these all need to be aligned with parent company Hynix. One of the first things they did was remove the Intel VP that was running Solidigm with their own Hynix exec to run the business. Very much under the thumb of Hynix.
