Apacer and Zadak’s new PCIe 5.0 SSDs are some of the fastest drives on the market, with reading speeds of up to 13,000MB/s. That’s more than twice as fast as the best PCIe 4.0 drives, and it’s nearly three times as fast as the best SATA III drives. The first PCIe 5.0 drives aren’t expected until AMD’s Zen 4 processors later this year, but they will change the landscape of storage as we know it!
The Apacer AS2280F5 and Zadak TWSG5 are both rated at 13,000MB/s seq. read speed while writing 12,000MB/s maximums for the SSD’s general performance. For gamers who need increased storage capacity but don’t want to spend too much money on it as well as those interested in moving massive files around without breaking their backs with heavy workloads right away – this might be just what you’re looking forward too!
The new Phison PS5026-E26 controller is used by both of companies’ solid state drives. This high speed Solid State Drive (SSD) comes with speeds up to 13,500MB/s Sequential Read, 12,000 MBps Seq Write for PCIe 5 Gen implementation which isn’t quite maximum specifications but usually takes some time before it can be fully utilized due 16,000 MBSR transfer rates possible on this upgradeable version..
A highly anticipated update from last generation’s older models ,the newest addition boasts increased bandwidth in comparison while still retaining compatibility across different platforms – making him another strong candidate among many contenders vying towards being the best in the market.
The Zadak and Apacer SSDs both feature the same heat sink from their virtual Computex booth, but the Zadak SSD is marked with an ‘ultra-thin graphene’ heat sink while the other has no mention of its type. This could be because they use different types depending on what you need?
PCIe 5.0 SSDs will require more cooling than current ones, but it’s not yet clear how much that might be or what type of controller Phison is using for their E26 option – which could make things run cooler still! It also possible future M2 drives may use active fan technology instead as an alternative form factor…
The release of these new PCIe 5.0 SSDs is likely going to happen around the same time as AMD’s Zen 4 processors, which will be coming out in fall this year (2022). Intel already offers native support for it with their 12th Gen Alder Lake chips but if someone has other plans beyond what Phison can offer then we might see slower solid state drives before then.
