The first PCIe 5.0 NVMe SSD has been released by CFD Gaming, a Japanese company. However, its availability on sale may suggest that other SSD manufacturers may develop their solutions in the near future, while also with a wider sales area.
CFD Gaming, a Japanese company, was one of the first to offer NVMe 2.0 SSDs with read speeds of 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 postponed due to a security issue.
CFD Gaming will unveil the PG5NFZ PCIe 5.0 SSD models. They will include 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB versions. Micron supports 3D TLC NAND flash memory, as well as PS5026-E26 memory controllers from Phison.
At the moment, only the CFD Gaming SSD PG5NFZ PCIe 5.0 model with a capacity of 2 TB is on sale. Versions for 1 and 4 TB have not yet reached the sellers. This novelty costs 49,980 yen (about $385) and does not include VAT. Without it, the current flagship Samsung 990 Pro drive costs about 13% more.
The CFD Gaming SSD PG5NFZ PCIe 5.0 has an active cooling system and a small fan. The manufacturer does not specify whether the novelty may be used without the specified cooling system. However, the company advises that before installing it, ensure that the computer case you are using has adequate fresh air.
