Samsung’s next-generation 990 PRO SSDs that includes the PCIe Gen 5.0 M.2 protocol have as soon as once more been confirmed, this time by PCI-SIG.

Samsung’s Next-Gen 990 PRO PCIe Gen 5.0 M.2 SSDs Confirmed, Microsoft DirectStorage API Compliant & Pushing Storage Speeds To The Next Level

The Samsung 990 PRO Gen 5 M.2 SSDs had been additionally noticed inside the Korean RRA certification listing earlier this month. We got here to see two SSD configurations, a 1 TB and a 2 TB mannequin which will likely be utilizing Samsung’s personal proprietary answer to energy its next-gen SSD options.

While PCI-SIG solely supplies us the naming and affirmation that these are certainly PCIe Gen 5.0 M.2 licensed SSDs, the sooner itemizing revealed two fashions, the “MZ-V9P1T0” and the “MZ-V9P2T0”. For reference, the present Samsung 980 Pro PCIe Gen 4.0 SSDs are labeled as “MZ-V8P1T00”. One can come to the conclusion that these are Samsung’s next-generation 990 Pro 1 TB & 2 TB PCIe Gen 5 SSD fashions.

It needs to be identified that Samsung has already launched its first PCIe Gen 5.0 SSDs for servers within the type of the PM1743 which gives speeds of as much as 13 GB/s (random learn) and a couple of,500K (IOPS). The drives are available as much as 15.36 TB capacities however one should not count on such ludicrous capacities for the buyer platforms. We know that the next-generation PCIe Gen 5.0 SSDs are going to supply speeds of as much as 14 GB/s and as much as 8 TB capacities so that is additionally what we should always count on from the Samsung storage options. We can not affirm the complete particulars but however Samsung’s 980 Pro Gen 4 SSDs had been top-of-the-line options for the PCIe 4.0 platform till only in the near past as rivals began pushing out their top-of-the-line designs.

It stays to be seen if the seller develops some model new cooling options or thermal coating for the NAND & DRAM chips for the reason that upcoming drivers are anticipated to run sizzling. Samsung already made a customized 980 PRO SSD with a heavy-duty industrial heatsink for the PS5 so one thing related could also be coming to the next-gen 990 PRO SSDs too. These SSDs will likely be ultra-fast client units & will make the most of Microsoft’s DirectStorage API to ship the perfect efficiency.

Samsung may announce its next-gen 990 Pro 1 TB & 2 TB PCIe Gen 5.0 SSD options by finish of the 12 months or at CES 2022 as Gen 5 platforms from Intel and AMD will likely be available by then.
