Samsung promises breakneck speeds with PCIe 5.0 SSD

Samsung released the PM1743 SSD for enterprise servers using PCIe 5.0 interface and 6th generation V-NAND. Read speed increased to 13 Gbit/s.

Compared to PCIe 4.0 NVMe storage devices, Samsung claims the PM1743 SSD can deliver up to 32Gbps of bandwidth, twice the bandwidth that current PCIe 4.0 drives can provide.

The PM1743 SSD delivers read and write speeds to meet the ever-increasing performance demands of data centers. This is achieved with a controller that supports the latest PCIe standards.

The PM1743 SSD has a sequential read speed of up to 13GB/s. This is 1.9 times 1.7 times faster than PCIe 4.0. Random read speed 2500 IOPS.

In addition, the sequential write speed is 6.6Gbps and the random write speed is 250,000 IOPS.

These data transfer rates allow enterprise server manufacturers to use PM1743 SSDs for higher performance.

In addition, the PM1743 HDD can provide higher power efficiency of up to 600 Mbit/s per watt. This is a 30% increase over the previous generation.

To achieve these speeds, the company had to develop a special controller for the PM1743 SSD. Then the chip manufacturer tested the technology with the help of Intel.

"We are working with Samsung to test the latest PCIe NVMe SSD called PM1743," Intel said. Together we have solved the complex technical issues we encountered with PCIe 5.0.

Samsung shows PCIe 5.0 SSD speed

Intel has released a new demo video showing the new Samsung PM1743 PCIe NVMe SSD processor and Core i9-12900K processor working together to achieve true data transfer speeds of over 13Gbps.

In contrast, the PlayStation 5 views a PCIe Gen 4 SSD as one of its main selling points, and Sony believes that the ultra-fast optical drives can achieve near-instant load times across the platform.

Sony optical discs offer data transfer speeds of about 5.5 Gbps, which is less than half the speed that Samsung's system can handle.

In addition, the demo also demonstrated the capabilities that next-generation storage devices can offer. This was the standard for PCIe 5.0 drives.
