Other PCIe 5.0 SSDs Are Also Crashing Instead of Throttling

Some of the best SSDs, especially PCIe 5.0 drives based on the Phison PS5026-E26 controller, crash instead of thermal throttling when run without a cooler. Initially, only the Corsair MP700 exhibited this behavior. However, it became clear that the problem was more widespread and was also affecting his other Phison E26-based SSDs.

german press computer based Seagate FireCuda 540, Gigabyte Aorus Gen5 10000, and Adata Legend 970 were also found to have shutdown issues. This was expected since the PCIe 5.0 SSD uses the same Phison E26 controller. FireCuda 540, Aorus Gen5 10000, and Leged 970 are still on firmware 22. Seagate has not responded to Computerbase as to when the new firmware will be available, but Gigabyte has promised it will arrive “soon.”
