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.

At this time it is unknown whether or not Gigabyte plans to release this insane SSD as a consumer product, or if they plan to launch this product as a standalone 4-way PCIe 16x to 4x PCIe 4.0 4x M.2 adaptor. Either way, Gigabyte has the ability to create some blitzing fast SSD products, which is great news for early adopters of PCIe 4.0.
