Proper now the PCIe 4.0-based NVMe drives are maxing out at about 7GB/sec, so we should always count on as much as 14-16GB/sec or so from PCIe 5.0-based NVMe SSDs of the longer term. Most PCIe 4.Zero SSDs come are on the PCIe 4.Zero x4 interface and may nonetheless pump away at 7GB/sec, so a PCIe 5.Zero x4 SSD ought to provide round 14GB/sec.
PCIe 4.Zero x16 has as much as 32GB/sec of bandwidth obtainable whereas the next-gen PCIe 5.Zero customary will double that as much as an enormous 64GB/sec that can go away 16GB/sec for the x4 interface — good for next-gen PCIe 5.Zero NVMe SSDs.
Silicon Movement introduced the information in its latest earnings name, with Silicon Movement president and CEO Wallace C. Kou saying that the corporate could have its new PCIe 5.Zero SSD controllers sampling out to clients in 2H 2022 whereas shopper drives will likely be obtainable someday in 2023.
