Seagate’s FireCuda 540 PCIe Gen5 SSD Listed: 1.5M IOPS

Seagate is entering the PCIe Gen5 SSD race with a FireCuda 540 drive that promises to deliver performance on par with the best SSDs on the market. It far exceeds the performance of PCIe Gen4 drives. FireCuda 540 devices promise to deliver up to 1.5M IOPS and sequential read and write speeds of up to 10 GB/s, along with the durability and reliability you’ve come to expect from Seagate.

Seagate’s FireCuda 540 2TB SSD is capable of up to 10,000 MB/s sequential read/write speeds and up to 1.5 million random IOPS, according to an initial listing on the following site. amazon uk and B&H in the United States (discoverer) @momomo_us). The drive offers up to 2,000 TBW write endurance with a 5-year warranty, slightly higher than the 1,400 TBW endurance of competing PCIe Gen5 SSDs. Along with a higher endurance rating, the drive comes bundled with his three-year subscription to Seagate’s Rescue data recovery service.

Seagate has not disclosed which controller it uses for its FireCuda 540 2TB SSD, but the fact that the company is working very closely with Phison and the only client SSD platform capable of primetime Considering the fact that it’s Phison’s PS5026-E26, it’s safe to say that this is the controller that powers the drive. Seagate, on the other hand, has decided not to equip its new SSD with an advanced cooling system, unlike its competitors, so the drive is equipped with a graphene heat spreader.

As for 3D NAND memory, Seagate’s FireCuda 540 appears to use the proven 3D TLC NAND with a 1,600 MT/s interface. As such, the sequential read/write speed is limited to 10,000 MB/s. Meanwhile, up to 1,500,000 random read/write IOPS provide the same overall user experience as drives rated at 12,500 MB/s sequential read/write speeds in most cases.
