    Corsair MP600 Pro 2 TB in the test: next-gen SSD with almost 2 GB / s in SLC mode

    The NVMe SSD Corsair MP600 Pro relies on the second generation PCIe 4.0 controller from Phison and TLC-NAND. In the test, the drive is not only fast in SLC mode, but also outshines the MP600, especially in TLC write mode. File transfers of several hundred GB are no problem.   MP600 Pro: Corsair’s 2nd generation PCIe 4.0 SSDs In spring 2019, Corsairs MP600 was one of the first SSDs with PCIe 4.0 . Since then, a number of manufacturers have relied on the Phison-developed platform with the Phison E16 controller, which has a peak of 5,000 MB / s for sequential reading and more than 4,000 MB / s for writing. A new generation of…

    Aorus Gen4 7000s: Gigabytes of new PCIe-4 SSDs with 7 GB / s and tower cooler

    Gigabyte is stepping up its PCIe 4.0 SSDs and is presenting the new generation with Phison E18 controller and up to 7,000 MB / s. In keeping with the speed, the name is Aorus Gen4 7000s, the predecessor offers a maximum of 5,000 MB / s. Equipped with a relatively flat cooler, a variant with a high heat pipe construction is also planned. Phison E18 and faster NAND for more performance While the first generation only scratches the possibilities of PCIe 4.0 x4 with a gross data rate of almost 8 GB / s, the Aorus Gen4 7000s is close to the practical limit. This is made possible by the more powerful Phison E18 controller and the use…

    Code name “Ghost Tree”: Kingston with 7 GB / s faster PCIe 4.0 SSD and more

    Kingston has put together a diverse package of new storage solutions for the digital CES 2021. The NVMe SSD with the project name “Ghost Tree” stands out with its high performance of 7 GB / s. The external XS2000 uses USB 3.2 Gen 2×2, the NV series uses PCIe 3.0 and the DC1500M is an upgrade of the U.2 models for business.   Ghost tree Kingston has announced an M.2 SSD with PCIe 4.0 x4, which, with 7,000 MB / s reading and writing, is currently in the highest performance class, without a final name, but under the working title “Ghost Tree”. An unspecified eight-channel controller is supposed to manage…
