Phison PCIe 5.0 SSD is the new M.2 NVMe storage model, which has been manufactured with PS5026-E26 Controller providing a massive 12GB/s speed.
In 2022, many hardware companies are preparing themselves to launch new storage products with the latest PCIe express 5.0 technology. The Storage makers nowadays focus on developing products that deliver incredible transfer speeds for upcoming next-gen gaming and content creation. Among all the companies in 2022 that manufactures these storage and memory products, Phison is one of them.
Phison has recently revealed their upcoming newly storage unit. From the company’s official statements, Phison’s new M.2 NVMe SSD will feature the latest Gen PCIe Express 5.0 technology and the PS5026-E26 controller.
Phison has designed its M.2 NVMe SSD with a new electronics architecture. It features two ARM cortex-R5 cores and 3 CoXProcessor 2.0, which is based on TSMC’s 12 nm process. Besides, it also comes with Microsoft DirectStorage API technology.
The most impressive thing about SSD is that it has achieved a sequential read speed of over 12 GB/s. The experiment result is based on CrystalDiskMark software. The sequential write speed has a pick of 10 GB/s which indicates the performance while the world’s fastest PCIe 4.0 SSD delivers a max 7 GB/s sequential speed. So obviously this Phison’s SSD will deliver nearly approx 70% more speed. Also, it has a random read speed of approximately 16.000 IOPS which suggests that it has more room for improvement. This will help to improve firmware optimization purposes for the retail products.
Now another important thing to notice is this Phison SSD comes with a proof-of-concept SSD. This model demands a little wider PCB and connector. So this M.2 2580 Phison PCIe 5.0 has no support for backward compatibility with the previous Gen M.2 2280 SSD. The launch date of this SSD storage is expected this year and closer to AMD’s 600 series chipset release date.
So this was the latest information about the upcoming Phison PCIe Express 5.0 SSD which is launching in 2022. If you think we missed out on something, let us know in the comments below.
