Silicon Power Marvel Xtreme M80 USB 3.2 Gen 2 flash drive is fast AF

We recently told you about a new flash drive from Silicon Power that was rather unremarkable and ho-hum. Called “Marvel M02,” it is your typical run-of-the-mill USB-A drive. Its lack of excitement is absolutely fine, however, as sometimes all you need is a basic flash drive for general use. Not every product has to be exciting.

Well, folks, there is yet another new flash drive from Silicon Power, and it is anything but boring. While its design is nothing special, its performance is. Called “Marvel Xtreme M80,” this USB-A drive offers read performance up to 600MB/s and write performance up to 500MB/s. In other words, as its name implies, this drive is extremely fast!

“With extreme read speeds up to 600MB/s and write speeds up to 500MB/s, the Marvel Xtreme M80 is our fastest USB flash drive yet. Compared to a standard UFD, that’s 5.5x and 16.7x faster, respectively! Make the most of your time and copy huge files to the drive in a matter of seconds! For example, transfer a 5GB file from a PC to the drive in as little as 12 seconds,” says Silicon Power.

The company adds, “The Marvel Xtreme M80 is equipped with a Type-A USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface and a massive capacity of up to 1TB. With this much space, it’s the only UFD you’ll need. Add to that its portable-friendly design and simpler and quicker alternative to cloud storage, and you’ll definitely want it by your side wherever you go.”
