gigabyte friday announced One of the industry’s first solid state drives with PCIe 5.0 x4 interface for high-end client PCs. Aorus Gen5 10000 drives offer approximately 75% higher sequential read performance than the most expensive PCIe Gen4 drives and will be available in the coming weeks and months. On the other hand, it is not the only SSD with a PCIe Gen5 interface as it is based on an off-the-shelf Phison design. However, given the performance specs offered by the Aorus Gen5 10000 SSD, there is no doubt that it will be one of the best of his SSDs available this fall.
According to Gigabyte, their Aorus Gen5 10000 SSD has a maximum sequential read speed of up to 12,454 MB/s and a maximum sequential write speed of up to 10,078 MB/s (based on CrystalDiskMark), which are 75% and 48% faster in comparison. For high-end drives with PCIe 4.0 x4 interface. In terms of random performance, the Aorus Gen5 10000 offers around 1.3 million 4K read IOPS (Q32T16), and up to 1.16 million 4K read IOPS (Q32T16). This is significantly higher than most client PCIe 4.0 x4 drives.
Gigabyte’s Aorus Gen5 10000 SSD uses Phison’s PS5026-E26 controller (a dedicated CoXProcessor 2.0 accelerator, an Arm Cortex-R5 core with eight NAND channels) and the recently announced 2400 MT/s (although Gigabyte You didn’t specify whether you’re dealing with Micronor SK Hynix memory).
The manufacturer will offer new high performance M.2-2280 drives in 1TB, 2TB and 4TB configurations. Additionally, the company ships his Aorus Gen5 10000 SSD with an easily removable full-cover copper heatsink, allowing users to either use the drive or instead opt for his M.2 cooling solution on the motherboard. You can choose to use it.
Gigabyte’s Aorus Gen5 10000 SSD and Corsair’s MP700 products are among the first solid-state drives to use Phison’s PS5026-E26 platform, the first generation product from the controller developer. The PCIe 5.0 x4 interface offers up to 15.8 GB/s of raw bandwidth in each direction, so expect the eventual PCIe Gen5 implementation from Phison to offer even better performance. So far, however, the E26 is the only client platform for PCIe Gen5 SSDs.
Gigabyte has not disclosed the price or exact release date of the Aorus Gen5 10000 SSD. Still, we speculate that the company will charge a premium for the extreme performance these drives offer and will try to launch them when new PCIe 5.0-supporting platforms from AMD and Intel become available. I can do it.
