Samsung and Adata are teasing PCIe 5.0 SSDs ahead of their big CES event in January. With read/write speeds of up to 14/12Gbps, this new generation of solid-state storage is twice as fast as the fastest PCIe 4.0 drives.
needle Raised two prototypes The first PCIe 5.0 NVMe M.2 SSD with a capacity of up to 8TB. The Project Nighthawk SSD is built with a Silicon Motion SM2508 controller capable of sequential read/write speeds of up to 14/12 Gbit/s, while the Project Blackbird SSD has an InnoGrit IG5666 controller for read/write speeds of up to 14/10 Gbit/s . Hopefully, Adata will provide more details at CES, which kicks off on January 5th. Unless COVID gets derailed again.
Meanwhile, Samsung has just announced PM1743 PCIe NVMe SSD, equipped with Samsung’s 6th generation v-NAND device and a proprietary controller that supports PCIe 5.0 interface. The company targets corporate customers with a promise of 30% improvement in energy efficiency and advanced security features.
The PM1743 is capable of sequential read speeds of up to 13 Gbit/s (250,000 IOPS random read speed) and sequential write speeds of 6.6 Gbit/s (250,000 IOPS random write speed), according to Samsung. The PM1743 SSD will be available in capacities ranging from 1.92TB to 15.36TB, and is currently being sampled by chip and server makers ahead of mass production in the first quarter of 2022.
