MSI has teased its next-generation PCIe Gen 5 SSD which will probably be a part of its new Spatium model and have Phison’s newest Gen 5 controller.
MSI Teases It is Subsequent-Gen Spatium PCIe Gen 5 SSD AIC, Options Phison’s Extremely-Quick Gen 5 E26 Controller
That is only a teaser for now so the data is likely to be a bit restricted that MSI is sharing however we all know that the producer is tough at work to make its title within the SSD phase with the brand new Spatium model. We now have examined a number of Spatium SSDs, each Gen 4 and Gen 3, and located them to be very stable storage options and in addition among the quickest obtainable out there. However MSI is not stopping there.
As you may see, the Spatium PCIe Gen 5 SSD proven by MSI is available in an AIC kind issue. It options the next-gen Phison PS5026-E26 controller which is PCIe Gen 5.0 prepared and in addition has the NVMe 2.0 interface. The cardboard is predicted to supply superior sequential learn and write efficiency. This is not the one AIC that MSI is engaged on as they’ve additionally teased their M.2 XPANDER-Z Gen 5 too which is being shipped with the top-end MEG Z690 GODLIKE motherboard.
From what Phison has already revealed, the PS5026-E26 controller that will probably be featured on next-gen SSDs such because the MSI Spatium is Gen 5.0 x4 compliant with switch speeds rated at 128 GT/s. The controller will probably be based mostly on the 12nm TSMC course of node, characteristic 8-channel with 32-enables & supply as much as 32 TB capacities.
The efficiency is rated at sequential reads of as much as 12 GB/s & writes of as much as 11 GB/s. The 4K Random Learn efficiency is rated at 1,500K IOPS and a couple of,000K Learn IOPS. The demo proven by Phison throughout CES 2022 blew previous these speeds, delivering virtually 14 GB/s of Learn and virtually 13 GB/s of Write speeds. Anticipate extra data on the Gen 5 SSDs by Computex 2022.
