MSI PCIe 5.0 SSD Debuts with 12 GBps Reads, 10 GBps Writes

This week we got our first chance to benchmark a PCIe 5.0 SSD, but it’s an engineering sample based on Phison’s E26 controller, not a shipping product available for consumer purchase. Today, MSI announced his two new PCIe 5.0 SSDs, the Spatium M570 Pro and Spatium M570. This is the first PCIe 5.0 drive that can actually be purchased as a shipping product.

In MSI’s CES demo suite, we were able to see both drives, but more importantly, early benchmark results for the Spatium M570 Pro. The Spatium M570 Pro boasts sequential read and write speeds of 12,000 and 10,000 MBps respectively. MSI will launch both drives at undisclosed prices in the second quarter of this year, and the M570 Pro will compete with the Raider GE78 HX and Titan GT77. It will also be available as an option for HX laptops.

Both MSI Spatium drives use Phison’s E26 controller, but the M570 Pro uses Micron’s new 232-layer NAND flash, while the M570 non-pro uses slower TLC memory. I can only get up to 10,000 MBps. read.
