Gaming has evolved from a predominately children’s form of entertainment to one of the fastest growing markets in the entertainment industry. It is estimated that the number of gamers worldwide will hit 3.32 billion by 2024. The advancement of technology is the primary driving force behind this boom. For example, the adoption of SSDs and microSD cards enhances in-game performance by reducing latency and loading times. In addition, storage solutions with larger capacities and longer lifespans have been developed to keep pace with the increasing size of game files. With 512GB and beyond, gamers can now store extensive libraries of titles on a single, tiny SSD or microSD card, eradicating the need to sacrifice game data for space. Silicon Power equips gamers with two storage solutions that are designed to increase performance and capacity on portable gaming consoles, the MEM3K0E M.2 2230 NVMe SSD and the Superior Gaming microSDXC card.
Instant Storage Expansion on Portable Gaming Consoles
Built-in storage is never enough – the MEM3K0E M.2 2230 NVMe SSD and the Superior Gaming microSDXC card provide versatile, instant storage expansion on portable gaming consoles. Utilizing the latest and smallest iteration of modular SSDs, the MEM3K0E in its tiny M.2 2230 form factor (30.0mm × 22.0mm × 3.6mm) delivers unparalleled compatibility on the increasingly popular Steam Deck and ROG Ally consoles. The Superior Gaming microSDXC card is not only tailored for the Steam Deck and ROG Ally, but further extends its compatibility to the Nintendo Switch console too. With lightning-fast data transfer rates and expansive storage capacity options, these solutions enable gamers to effortlessly load and play their favorite titles without any performance bottlenecks and switch between consoles seamlessly.
High Speeds to Break New Records
In a realm where split-second decisions and reactions can make all the difference, the MEM3K0E M.2 2230 NVMe SSD and the Superior Gaming microSDXC card deliver with high speeds to break new records. Read speeds up to 4,500MB/s on the SSD and 100MB/s on the microSDXC card ensure minimal loading times, seamless in-game transitions, and rapid file access. Write speeds up to 3,000MB/s on the SSD and 80MB/s on the microSDXC card reduce game installation and save times to catapult gamers into the heart of their virtual worlds faster. The MEM3K0E can load 100GB of data in a lightning-fast 80 seconds.
Complete Gaming Library with up to 1TB Capacity
The MEM3K0E M.2 2230 SSD and the Superior Gaming microSDXC card shatter constraints by offering massive storage capacities up to 512GB and 1TB, respectively. Perfectly suited for portable gaming devices, this empowers gamers to fit all of their cherished titles onto a single storage solution with plenty of space for new games too. It also eliminates the hassle of switching between multiple solutions or the incessant cycle of deleting, downloading, and installing games. Beyond accommodating the game files, large capacities provide ample space for updates, patches, downloadable content, and invaluable save files.
Extreme Durability for Years of Gameplay
The MEM3K0E M.2 2230 NVMe SSD and the Superior Gaming microSDXC card are equipped with industrial-grade 3D TLC NAND Flash, ensuring the endurance of 9.6GB and 18.1GB writes per day over a 3-year period, respectively. In addition, both storage solutions have the strength to endure 3,000 abnormal power failure tests. Plus, LDPC error-correcting technology ensures that data will not be damaged or lost during an abnormal power failure for reliable performance throughout the long lifespans.
As games continue to evolve and become more demanding on hardware, storage solutions have become one of the most indispensable components to upgrade gaming setups. The continued push for faster data transfer speeds and higher capacities will reshape the gameplay experience. Silicon Power has engineered quality memory and storage solutions for gaming enthusiasts for more than 14 years. This year, with the launch of the MEM3K0E M.2 2230 NVMe SSD and the Superior Gaming microSDXC card, Silicon Power now offers more compact and powerful storage solutions for Steam Deck and ROG Ally users! By harnessing the power of these storage solutions, gamers can expand their storage space on Steam Deck and ROG Ally instantly whilst simultaneously enjoying smoother and faster gameplay.
