- Lower power consumption that results in greater energy efficiency
- Greater endurance due to the drive’s ability to withstand extreme conditions and to retain data even when dropped.

In addition to the launch of the XLR8 CS3040 NVMe PCIe Gen4 SSD, PNY also expands its existing SSD line-up with larger capacity models which are the following below:
PNY CS2130 NVMe SSD 4TB model: 3500MB/s read, 3000MB/s write
