MSI Spatium M570 Pro PCIe 5.0 SSD Tops 14.1 GBps as Launch Approaches
It looks like MSI is almost ready to roll out the Spatium M570 Pro PCIe 5.0 SSD.company say show SSD It will be held next week at the Computex booth in Taipei. We first saw this SSD at his CES booth at MSI earlier this year, hitting sequential read and write speeds of 12,000 MBps and 10,000 MBps respectively. In the months since its initial appearance, MSI has been able to incrementally improve performance and be among the fastest PCIe 5.0 SSDs heading into 2023.
According to MSI’s latest performance benchmarks by CrystalDiskMark, the Spatium M570 Pro achieves nearly 14,200 MBps for sequential reads and just over 12,000 MBps for sequential writes. This makes it slightly behind the T-Force Z54A in read performance, but better in write performance. However, it should be noted that more than raw sequential read/write speed matters for SSD performance, but MSI seems to be still very strong in this new entry into the PCIe 5.0 SSD space. I can see it.
The Spatium M570 Pro uses the Phison PS5026-E26 controller, and we expect the majority of PCIe 5.0 SSDs released this year to feature this controller. The aforementioned T-Force Z54A used the Innogrit IG5666 controller. The SSD also uses 232-layer 2,400 MT NAND. Like almost every PCIe 5.0 SSD we’ve seen so far, the M570 Pro features a sturdy heatsink and vapor chamber plate to maintain consistent performance under load. Without adequate cooling solutions, PCIe 5.0 SSDs are highly susceptible to thermal throttling and require careful setup.
The less performant Spatium M570 (10,000 MBps for sequential reads and writes) is already available from retailers in capacities of 1 TB and 2 TB. For example, a 2TB Spatium M570 costs: $349.99 at Newegg. However, MSI has yet to elaborate on the availability of the Spatium M570 Pro, other than stating that it will launch in the soon-to-be-finished second quarter.
The Spatium M570 Pro will be available in 1 TB, 2 TB and 4 TB capacities at launch and is expected to command a significant price premium over its ‘non-Pro’ siblings.
