Nextorage demonstrates PCIe 5.0 SSD: Both sequential read and write speeds exceed 10000MB/s
Recently, Shimizu, a well-known overclocking player in Japan, visited the Nextorage headquarters and saw a sample of PCIe 5.0 SSD. The official also conducted a simple test. According to Nextorage, this PCIe 5.0 SSD comes in 1TB and 2TB versions. The former has a sequential write speed of 9500MB/s and a sequential read speed of 8500MB/s, while the latter has a sequential write speed of 10000MB/s and a sequential read speed of 9500MB/s, using 176-layer NAND flash memory.
At the booth of the Tokyo Game Show in 2022, one of Nextorage’s PCIe 5.0 SSDs is also equipped with a huge heat sink, which occupies a large space. Shimizu said that it was in the form of an early version, and when it is actually released, it will bring a newly designed radiator, which will be much smaller in size. With the soaring heat generation of PCIe 5.0 SSDs, cooling devices are essential.
