The new PCIe 4.0 Controllers technology enables high data transfer speeds, a feature exploited by the new Gigabyte SSDs.
These are the first Gigabyte models using the new technology and show how much faster they can become all processes with the new generation hardware.
It is worth noting that the Gigabyte’s AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD is distinguished for a reading speed of 5 GB per second and a recording speed of 4.4 GB per second. These performances make Gigabyte’s Solid State Disk 56% faster in all processes than other older SSD models that can be found on the market.
It is important to emphasize that Gigabyte is not the only company to develop SSDs based on PCIe 4.0 technology, as other manufacturers are expected to be present in this category. Corsair is one of the companies that have already provided details of its immediate future projects in the field of high-speed storage.
In any case, however, these SSDs can be combined with AMD’s Ryzen processors and the appropriate motherboards. Gigabyte’s models will be available in 1 TB and 2 TB versions, but it is expected that other proposals will follow.
There is no formal announcement on the pricing policy that Gigabyte will follow for its new SSD models at the current stage, but it will initially not cause any surprise to the public if they are expensive. Gradually their price will fall, as is the case for all technology products that define a market cut. The official launch of sales of the new SSDs is scheduled for July 2019.
