PCI Express 5 is expected to usher in new found levels of solid state (SSD) storage performance for next-generation computing platforms, and Phison is at the forefront of the SSD controller technology that will enable it. Watch our live discussion with Phison's own Chris Ramseyer for a deeper dive on all of the... Read more...
The 2022 edition of the Consumer Electronics Show has concluded. We didn't attend this year's show in Las Vegas in-person, but that's mostly because the majority of the biggest players in the market didn't show up either and we attended a handful of private briefings at other venues. The severity of the... Read more...
It will be a couple of days before the Consumer Electronics Show kicks off in earnest, but CES week is officially upon us. That means a bevy of announcements are about to come rumbling in like an avalanche. One of them will be a more detail PCI Express 5.0 controller reveal for next-generation solid state drive...

Intel is about to bring PCI Express 5.0 into consumer homes with the launch of Alder Lake and its accompanying Z690 chipset, but what about actual products that can tap into the extra bandwidth the upcoming platform provides? Phison is on it. The controller maker sent us a note today announcing it is working on... Read more...
A number of today’s best performing, PCIe Gen 4 solid state drives are built around Phison’s E18 controller. If you remember, way back when the AMD Ryzen 3000 series debuted, a number of SSD providers also launched Phison PS5016-E16 based drives alongside the processors to highlight some of the benefits of the platform's PCI Express...

It seems as though enthusiasts just can’t catch a break these days. Finding a current-generation (or even previous-generation) GeForce RTX 30 Series or Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics card in stock is near-impossible. And things on the console gaming side aren’t much better, as both the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5... Read more...
I have yet to see a solid state drive come with a whiplash warning, but maybe one is finally warranted. Faster SSDs are coming, and at least some of them will be driven by Phison's brand-spanking-new PS5018-E18 controller chip, which leverages the PCI Express 4.0 bus to push incredibly high read and write speeds on...

Yesterday, we got a glimpse at the Xbox Series X from the front and the back including its port lineup. Today, we're getting a clearer glimpse at the hardware actually inside the gaming console; specifically, with relation to its storage system. We had previously heard rumors that the Xbox Series X would feature a... Read more...
The PCIe 4.0 era is amongst us, primarily [for consumers] thanks to the arrival of AMD's Ryzen 3000 processors and X570 motherboard platform. Up until now, we've seen a number of PCIe 4.0 consumer SSDs arrive with read/write speeds topping out at around the 5GB/sec mark. However, Lexar has been demoing a new PCIe... Read more...
Amid all of the hoopla surrounding AMD's next-generation Ryzen processors based on its Zen 2 CPU architecture is an interesting technology that complements the launch. We are talking about PCI Express 4.0. This is part of AMD's accompanying X570 chipset for Ryzen, and it doubles the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0. One of the... Read more...
AMD is looking to one-up Intel on numerous fronts with its Zen 2-based announcements at Computex 2019. In addition to introducing us to the first members of the Ryzen 3000 family, AMD also introduced the X570 chipset that natively supports the new processors. Perhaps the biggest feature addition with X570 is the... Read more...
