MSI Announces Spatium M570 Pro, the Company’s First PCIe Gen5 SSD with 12GB/s Read Speed

MSI will showcase its first consumer PCIe Gen5 storage at CES 2023. Today, the new Spatium M570 SSD series, which features PCIe Gen5 compatibility, will be unveiled for the first time at this event.

MSI is planning two SSDs: Spatium M570 and M570 Pro, with the latter being the faster of the two based on its name. The Pro model uses Micron 232-layer NAND chips and the latest M26 controller from Phison. While the non-Pro has the same controller, the memory is TLC-based.

MSI lists two SSDs with different heatsink designs. The official report suggests that the M570 Pro can write at 10 GB/s and read at 12 GB/s. The speed of the non-Pro version should be limited to 10 GB/s. MSI is giving a live demonstration of the M570 Pro at CES showing that it has a read speed of 12324 MB/s and a write speed of 11814 MB/s. This speed was tested with the 2TB version of Crystal Disk Mark. The motherboard used in testing was an MSI X670E Carbon and the processor was a Ryzen 9 7950X.

The company also demonstrated the storage using the latest Raider GE78HX system with 13th generation Core HX CPU, where the read speed was almost the same (12301 MB/s); however, the write speed was lower at 8972 MB/s. According to MSI, both drives are expected to go on sale in the second quarter of 2023 and will be available in 1 TB, 2 TB, and 4 TB capacities. However, pricing information is not available from MSI.
