The first PCIe 5.0 NVMe SSD has been released by CFD Gaming, a Japanese company. However, its inclusion on the market may indicate that other SSD manufacturers may begin implementing their solutions in the near future, while at the same time with a wider sales footprint.

CFD Gaming, a Japanese company, was one of the first to market NVMe 2.0 SSDs with read speeds up to 10 GB/s and support for the new PCIe 5.0 interface. Consumer SSDs of the new standard were expected to be available last year, but they were pushed to a halt due to a number of reasons.

CFD Gaming will release the PG5NFZ PCIe 5.0 SSD model. They include Micron's 3D TLC NAND flash memory chips as well as PS5026-E26 memory controllers from Phison. The novelty is equipped with 4 GB of DDR4 cache.

At the moment, only the CFD Gaming SSD PG5NFZ PCIe 5.0 model with a capacity of 2 TB has been available to purchasers, according to Akiba-PC's Japanese edition. It costs 49,980 yen (about $385) for a PCIe 5.0 SSD, which costs about 13% more than the current flagship Samsung 990 Pro drive with a PCIe 4.0 interface.

The CFD Gaming SSD PG5NFZ PCIe 5.0 is equipped with an active cooling system with a small fan. The manufacturer does not specify whether the novelty may be used without the specified cooling system. However, the company suggests that you ensure that the computer case you are using is running properly.
