Phison's next-gen PCIe 5 SSD controller nearly twice as fast at 13.5 GB/s


Recommended Posts


One of the first PCIe 5.0 SSD controllers is already hitting 13GB/s in the labs, making the future bright for seriously quick transfers. Phison, the makers of the E26 controller that's behind these numbers, already has samples with motherboard manufacturers in preparation for the big rollout later this year. Throw in the promise of cheaper SSDs, and Microsoft's DirectStorage, and 2022 could well be the year that SSDs take gaming to the next level.

And here I am just buying Gen 3 drives and SATA drives since I still need multiple TB of storage.


My guess is it'll still be years before I care about gen4/gen5 speeds for real world performance in gaming.

To be fair the real-world performance difference between a SATA SSD and an NVME SSD is pretty minor in terms of actual load times for programs. The vast majority of games will still play fine off a hard drive.
