CES 2016: Performance storage devices now have the capability to reach unbelievable read and write speeds due to PCIe bandwidth. NVMe SSDs in particular can often report speeds in excess of 2500MB/s which makes traditional SATA3 6Gb/s products seem quite outdated as the interface tops out around 550MB/s. Currently, Samsung and Intel are dominating the high-end storage market. However, companies like GALAX and now, ZOTAC have started to create their own performance PCIe SSDs.
ZOTAC’s first PCIe comes in a 480GB capacity and features a very impressive read speed of 2500MB/s. Furthermore, the drive has a reported sequential write rate of 1200MB/s and utilizes a Toshiba NAND. Aesthetically, the SSD looks fantastic and should work pretty well across a wide range of system designs. ZOTAC is planning to launch the drive next month and we should have a price point for you very soon.
