There's an important distinction between a product's announcement and its actual release even if that's not always made clear in a press release or media coverage. We bring this up because MSI has pulled back the curtain on its Spatium M570 Pro, its newest flagship PCIe 5.0 solid state drive. It comes with the claim... Read more...
We're approaching the midway point of 2023 and are just now starting to see solid state drives (SSDs) equipped to cruise in the fast lane, otherwise known as PCI Express 5.0, enter the marketplace. There are still just a few options at your disposal, but they're growing, even if slowly. One that's in the pipeline is... Read more...
Your options for selecting a solid state drive with a PCI Express 5.0 interface are few and far between, and even more so if you whittle down candidates to ones that are actually in stock. Don't despair, though, as more hyper-fast SSDs are coming soon. One of them is Patriot Memory's Viper PV553, which is due for a... Read more...
PCIe 5.0 SSDs are the latest component PC DIYers have to strap a fan to, simply to maintain the advertised level of perky performance. Ample evidence of this is already available, but just how bad thermals can affect the latest storage has been crystallized in a social media post by ComputerBase. The German tech... Read more...
Did you buy a spiffy new PCIe 5.0 SSD? Did you ignore the warning that it requires active cooling and install it in your system in a slot without a heatsink? Are you now facing drive shutdowns (causing system halts) and file system errors? Did you think that these two things might be related? Indeed, as revealed in... Read more...
Wondering where all the blistering-fast PCI Express 5.0 solid state drives are at? So are we, though good news—they're finally starting to show up, and they bring to the table next-gen data transfer speeds that hit 10GB/s (10,000MB/s) or even higher. Such is the case with TeamGroup's newly unveiled T-Force Cardea Z540... Read more...
Gigabyte’s Aorus Gen 5 10000 SSD has hit retail at last, albeit for pre-order or back-order, depending upon where you prefer to purchase.

Officially, MSI is rating the Spatium M570 as being capable of up to 10,000MB/s (10GB/s) of sequential read performance, but that might be... Read more...
Just like the PCIe 5.0 specification, Intel's ATX 3.0 spec introduces a number of new measures intended to support upcoming graphics cards with extremely high power draw. Among those are some stringent tests that products have to pass before the manufacturers can call them "ATX 3.0"-compliant. Unfortunately, vague... Read more...
Do you need to blast files around your network at ludicrous speeds? Do you even have an external interface that can handle 10 gigabytes per second? Yes, that's gigabytes, not bits.

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...
