It is undeniable that SSDs are becoming more popular, with even mid-range systems shipping with SSD boot drives. This popularity has lead many new manufacturers to enter the growing market, hoping to expand their brand presence while also generating additional revenue from the lucrative market. 

Gigabyte has launched their new UD PRO series of SATA SSDs, combining Toshiba 3D BiCS3 TLC NAND and a Phison controller to offer sequential read/write speeds of 530/500MBps. Gigabyte is also expected to deliver higher-end NVMe SSDs in the near future, including both M.2 and PCIe AORUS drives, both of which are set to appear at Computex 2018. 
 
These new UD PRO will be available in 256GBa and 512GB variants, both of which have a three-year warranty and ship in a 2.5-inch (7mm thick) form factor, with MSRP pricing of $68.99 and $119.99 respectively. 

Below are the full specifications of Gigabyte's UD PRO series of SSDs, where we can see that Gigabyte's larger 512GB model offers users increased random performance than its smaller 256GB counterpart, though both offer the same sequential speeds and ship with an onboard DDR3L SDRAM cache.

The Phison controller used in Gigabyte's UD PRO series is expected to be the PS3110-S10, the same controller that is used in Corsair's Neutron XT series SSDs and HyperX's Savage series, though both of those drives make use of 2D MLC NAND.
