It may seem hard to fathom but much faster solid state drives (SSDs) are on the horizon, with sequential read and write speeds on pace to double over today's fastest solutions. In a brief demonstration posted to YouTube, Phison showed off an engineering sample SSD ripping off reads just shy of 12.5GB/s and writes... Read more...
If you're familiar with M.2 SSDs, then you know that the standard sizes are named "M.2-2280", "M.2-2230", and so on. The last half of the number refers to the length of a drive's PCB, so an "M.2-2280" SSD is 80 millimeters long. M.2 SSDs officially can be up to 110mm in length, or as short as 30mm. The first half... Read more...
It was only around four and a half months ago when Kioxia debuted its CD7 series of cutting-edge SSDs for data centers, which entered the market as the industry's first PCIe 5.0 models to support the EDSFF E3.S (7.5mm) form factor. Now just a relatively short while later, Kioxia announced it sampling its second... Read more...
You've undoubtedly heard of a microchip, but might not be all that familiar with Microchip, as in the company. It's actually a pretty big one, with billions of dollars in annual revenue and multiple chip fabs in the United States. We'd be just fine if it ever decided to make a bigger splash in the consumer space... Read more...
If you're a hardware enthusiast, you might remember that back when NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3000-series cards launched, its Founders Edition cards came with a funky little power connector and an adaptor in the box. We've since learned that connector is (or at least based on) the peripheral power connector from the PCIe... Read more...
TeamGroup is putting the finishing touches on a screaming-fast solid state drive (SSD) that leverages the PCI Express 5.0 bus to deliver incredibly high bandwidth metrics. While not out yet, TeamGroup says its upcoming T-Force Cardea Gen 5 SSD will be the highest performing PCIe 5 drive when it does actually arrive to... Read more...
So, you think your solid state drive (SSD) is fast? It might very well be. Heck, just about any modern SSD is zippy, especially when compared to a mechanical hard disk drive (HDD) with spinning platters. But whatever drive you're rocking in your PC, it's not as fast as Adata's upcoming "Project Nighthawk" and "Project... Read more...
Although it may seem hard to believe, we've experienced the performance blessings of PCIe 4.0-based SSDs for over two years. Performance has ramped to the point that we've currently seeing sequential write and read speeds that are twice their PCIe 3.0-based predecessors. For example, the T-Force Cardea A440 Pro...

It seems like just yesterday when we first basked in the glory of PCIe 4.0 SSDs. But in actuality, we've experienced 5,000+ MB/sec sequential read and write speeds for the past two years. PCIe 4.0 was first enabled for consumer PC platforms with AMD Zen 2/X570 in mid-2019 and SSDs have only gotten faster in the years... Read more...
When it comes to high-speed interfaces for storage and graphics, PCIe 4.0 has been a known quantity (at least for consumers) since AMD launched its Ryzen 3000 Zen 2 platform during the summer of 2019. Intel embraced PCIe 4.0 this year with the release of Tiger Lake, although laptop manufacturers have yet to leverage... Read more...
