AMD and Phison introduce PCIe 50 SSDs on the Ryzen

AMD and Phison introduce PCIe 5.0 SSDs on the Ryzen 7000 platform – only 10 GB/s

At the Flash Memory Summit 2022, AMD and Phison presented the new PCIe 5.0 SSD in a test platform based on the Ryzen 7000 series processor.

The prototype SSD connected directly to the motherboard via an M.2 connector and used PCIe 5.0 lanes supported by the CPU. The device is based on Micron B58R 232-layer 3D NAND TLC flash memory chips. The manufacturer has not yet completed its testing phase, so the read/write speed of the device was only around 10 GB/s, which is not a record.

Phison regularly shows the work of SSDs that are currently preparing for release. In May of this year, the manufacturer shown a drive based on the PS5026-E26 controller that worked in tandem with the ASUS ROG X670 Hero motherboard. Then the SSD gave out a speed of 12 GB / s in sequential read and up to 10 GB / s in sequential write.

The new 3D NAND TLC flash memory is currently showing a performance of 1600 MT/s (Mega Transfers Per Second). However, in the future it will be able to issue an indicator of 2000 MT / s, which will allow it to achieve speeds of 12 and 11 GB / s, respectively, for sequential reads and writes.

The main test platform was an unnamed technical sample of the six-core Ryzen 7000 processor with the OPN designation 100-000000593-20_Y. This chip has already flashed in previous leaks. In the future, it will debut under the name Ryzen 5 7600X.

Motherboards based on the AMD X670 and B650 chipsets will receive support for the PCIe 5.0 interface for NVMe drives. AMD will also release the X670E and B650E chipsets, which will add support for PCIe 5.0 lanes not only for the persistent storage subsystem, but also for graphics cards.
