The design for ADATA’s next-gen SSD has been revealed officially along with some data concerning the performance. This new PCIe Gen5 x4 SSD has sequential read/write speeds of 14 GB/s and 12 GB/s respectively and has compatibility with the NVMe 2.0 standard.
It comes along with ADATA’s own cooling solution, exclusively developed for this. From the looks of it, this XPG SSD is based on Project Blackbird with its design, color, and the controller being cooled down with an additional heatsink.
ITHome claims that the Blackbird SSD is based on the SM2508 controller which has helped with the read/write speeds; IOPS random read at 1800k and IOPS write at 1600k per second. The SSDs will come in different storage options, going up to 8 TB.
The company has also shed some light on their XPG Slayer RGB DDR5 memory which will have clock speeds of 7000 MT/s. This speed appears to be perfectly suited for the next-gen Intel 13th Gen Core series and AMD’s Ryzen 7000 platform.
