Phison controller and Micron's 3D TLC NAND
During SG1, Seagate has unveiled its latest flagship SSD, the FireCuda PCIe 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSD, reaching a sequential performance of up to 7,300/6,900 MB/s, thanks to Phison controller and 176L 3D TLC NAND.
Already out of stock
Samsung's 980 Pro has only lately become available in 2TB capacity option, and while it is listed on Amazon.com, it is currently out of stock, showing just how popular this M.2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe drive actually is.
Its first PCIe SSD comes with RGB and aluminum heatsink
ZADAK, which has been so far known for some rather interesting memory modules, has announced its first PCIe 3.0 SSD, the SPARK PCIe Gen 3x4 M.2 RGB SSD, which will be available in capacities of up to 2TB, and comex with a rather neat looking aluminum heatsink with RGB lighting.
Pearl, Indigo, and Sage
It appears that there will be plenty of PCIe 4.0-based NVMe on the market soon, as ADATA is currently working on a total of three new PCIe 4.0 SSDs, called Pearl, Indigo, and Sage.
With transfer speeds of up to 6,500MB/s
Samsung's 980 Pro PCIe Gen4 M.2 NVMe SSD has been pictured at the CES 2020 show, and it could come as soon as Q2 this year.
Due to issues with some motherboards
AMD has confirmed that older chipset motherboards, based on X470, X370, B450, B350 and A320 chipsets, will lack support for PCIe 4.0, as there could be some issues with some motherboards.
Data center beat Nvidia Volta on latency and inference
The Xilinx CEO has just introduced a new product category called the Alveo PCIe based hardware accelerator that will challenge machine learning data center compute accelerators. It has dramatically better latency compared to Nvidia or AMD's GPU based solution, it's claimed.
With 3D TLC NAND and up to 960GB in capacity
Corsair has shown off its latest addition to the Force SSD series, the more mid-range oriented Force MP300.
Phison 5008 controller with 3D TLC NAND
Kingston has announced its latest A1000 PCIe NVMe SSDs which will deliver twice the performance of SATA at "near SATA pricing" and be available in 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB capacities, in standard M.2 2280 form-factor with PCIe Gen3 x2 NVMe interface.
SMI controller, 3D TLC NAND and PCIe interface
ADATA has announced yet another M.2 PCIe SSD which will be a part of its gaming-oriented XPG GAMMIX lineup, and come in 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB capacities - the XPG GAMMIX S11.
