Kioxia introduced SSD with PCIe of the 5th generation and read speeds up to 14 GB/s
At the China Flash Memory Summit, the Japanese company Kioxia announced the first details of its prototype solid — state drive with a PCIe 5.0 interface. The new SSDs develop a sequential read speed of 14 GB/s and a write speed of 7 GB/s-this is 103% and 67% more than the Kioxia CM6 on PCIe 4.0.
At the same time, the former Toshiba Memory reports that the prototype provides a 79% increase in I/O performance for arbitrary reading and a 50% reduction in latency for read or write operations, respectively.
The manufacturer plans to introduce its 2.5-inch solid-state drive in the SFF E3S form factor for server systems in the near future. Most likely, this will happen by the end of this year.
Kioxia expects an SSD with a 5th-generation PCIe interface for home systems to appear on the market in 2022. The company plans to release its own CD7 series models with a capacity from 1.6 TB to 30 DB with a reliability rating from 1 to 3 DVDs in the fourth quarter of 2021.
