Apacer and Zadak have announced the world's first M.2 SSD equipped with a PCIe 5.0 interface.Apacer's new SSD is AS2280F5, while Zadak's is called TWSG5.Both have the same features.Image source: WccftechThe novelties offer very high performance.They are made according to the NVMe 2.0 specification.The claimed sequential read speed reaches 13,000 Mbytes/s, sequential write speed - 12,000 Mbytes/s.Random write performance figures have not yet been specified.The Zadak TWSG5 SSDs come equipped with two radiators, an aluminum one and an ultra-thin graphene one.This allows its use in various computer form factors, including notebooks.Apacer devices are also equipped with cooling radiator, but only large aluminum one.It is noted that the new SSDs have backward compatibility with M.2 PCIe 4.0 slots, but of course they can not provide the claimed speed there.All novelties are provided with a five-year warranty.Information about capacity options and approximate price is unfortunately not available at the moment.
Zadak TWSG4S SSDs with PCIe 4.0 x4 interface introduced
Zadak has announced the TWSG4S family of high performance SSDs.The new products are suitable for use in desktops, laptops, and Sony PlayStation 5 game consoles.Image source: ZadakThe products are made in the popular M.2 2280 form factor based on 3D NAND flash memory chips.For data exchange uses PCIe 4.0 x4 interface - specification NVMe 1.4.The series includes models with a capacity of 512 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB.Claimed read speeds of up to 7,400 Mbytes/s and write speeds of 7,000 Mbytes/s.The drives feature up to 1,000,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) on random reads and random writes of up to 4K blocks and are offered with two cooling solutions - ultra-thin graphene and aluminum heatsinks.The first reduces operating temperature by an average of 15%, and the second reduces temperature by 35%.The products are backed by a five-year warranty.There is no information about the approximate price at the moment.
