PCI-Express 4.0 drives down to the people, roughly

The humble Sabrent company uses the Phison platform to offer ultra-fast NVME drives for processors New ones

The launch of the Ryzen 3000 processors with first-of-its-kind support in the PCI-Express 4.0 standard in the home market is only days away, and with it the official launches of drives Who knew how to capitalize on the increased potential thanks to the M.2 connectors and the X-, With continuous speeds that will break the 4 gigabyte-per-second threshold to a new, gigantic theoretical threshold of 7 gigabytes per second.

Acknowledgments to the growing selection in the fresh category should be sent to Chinese Phison, which continues to implement its successful business model and provides the various manufacturers with a ready-made platform for the new generation with this season's controller for E16 - which also stars on Sabrent's Rocket NVMe 4.0, in addition to home products , , PNY and.

Sabrent offers an initial introduction to the price war that will accompany the next generation The new?

Sabrent is not a well-known name and has long-standing reputation in the world of storage, but Phison's proven capabilities behind it should be enough to convince most consumers - so it now offers its PCIe 4.0 model that reaches continuous speeds of up to 5 gigabytes -Byte per second For 230 dollars "only" for one terabyte, Or 430 dollars to inflate 2 terabytes. The model can be purchased in a simple configuration without a heat sink or together with the most massive heat sink we have seen in the M.2 drive to date 250 dollars for a terabyte model או 450 dollars to 2 terabytes.

The E16 controller Designed to offer very similar capabilities to the popular E12 controller - but with significantly higher continuous speeds thanks to PCIe 4.0 support

You can not ignore the fact that these are price levels that are higher than 2 and even more than the current price levels for drives Fast and advanced 3.0, but we can certainly hope that this is only the beginning and from now on we can see a rapid decline thanks to the expected competition of the various companies that will try to capture a piece of this new and prestigious market.

Would be interesting, no doubt.

More models will bring prices down quickly or not necessarily? We'll soon find out

  1. So this is the reason for the drastic decline in the past year in the prices of NVME ...

    Estimates that operating systems will rise in 5 seconds at such speeds ... and perhaps it is time for this memory to be integrated into the board in a structured way, and to come with an installed system.
