As CES’s annual show draws to a close, companies are preparing to unveil their latest products. One of the highlights of the event will be PCIe 5.0-based SSDs, which theoretically promise a staggering 14GB / s read / write speed. Now, Intel has released a new test video that uses Samsung’s new PM1743 PCIe NVMe SSD, along with the Core i9-12900K processor, to achieve data speeds of more than 13 GB / s in the real world.
It should be noted, however, that standardizing data transfer speeds of more than 13 Gbps can take years; Because achieving it now requires an upgrade system equipped with the most powerful Intel chips and a new generation of rare SSDs, and all of this naturally imposes a very high price on the consumer. So few people are likely to be able to use the new PCIe 5.0-based SSDs in their systems.
Of course, the Intel test promises significant performance from the next generation of storage memory, and finally, the general public can experience this exciting speed in the years to come with a slight delay and after prices fall. Overall, the reason for this test is undoubtedly to show support for PCIe 5.0 on Alderlick twelfth generation chips. Intel has shown how it achieved 13.8 Gbps in IOMeter benchmark power using Alder Lake Core i9-12900K processor and Samsung SSD.
It is interesting to note that Intel originally intended to show this preview at CES; But the company announced last week that it was canceling the show due to the spread of the coronavirus mutant. This is why Ryan Schroeter, Intel senior strategist, to share the trial version publicly via Twitter.
Needless to say, the speed of 13.8 GB / s may be too much for ordinary desktop users; But this speed will be very important for executing and loading textures in AAA games, working with 8K video files or ultra-high resolution images.
Samsung is likely to be one of the first manufacturers to offer PCIe 5.0 SSD drives, which is why Intel decided to use Korean technology giant SSDs to conduct the test. In addition to Samsung, several other companies, such as IDITA, are developing PCIe 5.0 SSDs and SSD controllers for PCs.
