The advent of PCIe 4.0 makes it a very exciting time to be an SSD enthusiast. GIGABYTE had already teased what the interface could do for storage with its M.2 NVMe SSD, which is capable of reaching 5 GB/s sequential read speeds, but now it’s back with an even faster x16 SSD.
This guy comprises what is probably four of those M.2 NVMe SSDs in a 4x RAID configuration. According to a CrystalDiskMark result, it’s capable of sequential read and write speeds of over 15 GB/s. Needless to say, moving data around on these should be very satisfying.
