Performance Index

At Solidigm, we believe it is a best practice to disclose testing information or other substantiation, so our customers understand the bases of our performance and power claims.

The following Performance Index provides those details. If you do not see the claim and backup details you are looking for, check the marketing materials that contain the claim you are interested in.

We will continue to develop the Performance Index with our latest claims and explore new ways to educate our audiences about the performance of Solidigm products and technologies.
