Adata has released a teaser for SSD models with PCIe 5.0 interface. According to Adata, these SSDs can achieve sequential read speeds of up to 14GB/s. The company does not yet share arbitrary read and write speeds; More details to follow at CES.
Adata mentioned The company will show two model M.2 SSDs with PCIe 5.0 interface at CES. The company is already showing the first images and details of the Nighthawk project and the Blackbird SSD project. Adata writes that both SSDs offer a maximum storage capacity of 8TB.
According to the manufacturer, Project Nighthawk achieves sequential read and write speeds of 14 GB/s and 12 GB/s. The SSD uses a Silicon Motion SM2508 controller. This controller is not yet available on the Silicon Motion website. It is also not yet known what type of nand memory is used in the Nighthawk SSD. The Project Blackbird drive in turn achieves sequential read and write speeds of 14 GB/s and 10 GB/s. This variant will be equipped with the IG5666 controller from InnoGrit. No other details are known about this console either. Adata has not yet told you what type of nand memory is used in the Blackbird variant.
Adata will be showing the two SSD prototypes at CES and will share more details. The manufacturer did the same two years ago with its first PCIe 4.0 SSDs; the manufacture company It was shown at CES in 2020 A prototype PCIe 4.0 SSD, which achieved sequential read and write speeds of 7 GB/s and 6 GB/s, respectively. The company brought In September 2020 A similar PCIe 4.0 solid state drive is already on the market.
Update, 19.50: Initially, the article mentioned that the Adata Project Nighthawk offers sequential write speeds of up to 10 GB / s, but it was supposed to be 12 GB / s. The article has been adapted accordingly. thanks for the dinos.
