Gigabyte Showcases AORUS Gen5 SSD 10000 With Read Speed ​​Up To 12.5 GB/s

The Gen5 10000 SSD for M.2 interface has just been confirmed by AORUS. The storage comes in a black color scheme and has ditched the heat sink. The capacities available in AORUS SSDs will go up to a whopping 4 TB.

The company has also shed some light on the performance of the new drive. The 1 TB variant can achieve sequential read and write speeds of 12453.9 MB/s and 10074.5 MB/s respectively. These measurements are derived from the CrystalDiskMark tests.

AMD is all set to unveil its Ryzen 7000 desktop platform that will support PCIe Gen5 storage and GPUs. Intel also supported PCIe Gen5 with its 600 series motherboards, but only 16 lanes of the 12th generation Core CPU were available. This means that if the Gen5 storage were used, the GPU speed would be limited to 8 lanes. It’s not wrong to say that storage developers haven’t really focused on developing faster storage options until now.
