Shenzhen-based Powev Electronic Technology Co., Limited today announced the release of its Gloway Yi Series SSDs, powered by Yangtze Memory 3D NAND.
The Gloway Yi series NVMe SSD, positioned as an entry-level (low-mid-range) NVMe SSD, is purely China-made and will use the main controller from fabless IC design company InnoGrit, the company said.
It will use Yangtze Memory's 3D NAND for its flash memory, with no independent cache and HMB virtual cache support.
In May this year, the Gloway Yi Pro series SSDs were available on JD.com, with the 512 GB version priced at RMB 469.
Gloway Yi Pro series SSDs are 2.5-inch SATA disks, using Yangtze Memory's 64-layer TLC 3D NAND, based on Xstacking architecture.
The Gloway Yi Pro series are based on the MXS090X series of chips from Maxio Technology, a Chinese SSD controller developer.
Gloway Yi Pro series SSDs offer sequential read speeds of up to 500MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 450MB/s.
