New SSD offers nearly twice the bandwidth of Gen 4 NVMe drives.
Just as mainstream computers begin adopting PCIe Gen 5 support, FADU Technology has announced its first-ever PCIe Gen 5 SSD and SSD controller designs. According to GlobeNewswire, these SSDs will target 14.6 GB/s of performance, consume less power, and will be designed specifically for the cloud and data center market.
FADU’s preliminary specification for its Gen 5 SSD includes sequential write speeds of up to 10.4 GB/s, and sequential read speeds of up to 14.6GB/s, all while consuming less than 5.2W of power. It also delivers up to 3.5 million random read IOPS and 734,000 random write IOPS.
