At Computex 2022 AMD announced the new AM5 motherboard platform with new Ryzen 7000 series processors as well as support for technologies such as PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 RAM. In addition, the company has confirmed that it has worked with several other brands to implement PCIe Gen 5 technology.
Each AMD AM5 motherboard also comes with a PCIe Gen 5 NVMe SSD slot to provide better storage bandwidth. AMD, the first company to announce desktop motherboards with local support for PCIe Gen5 storage solution, could offer up to 32GT / s (theoretical) per lane.
Upcoming PCIe Gen 5 devices
AMD has confirmed that PCIe is the first set of Gen 5 products to enter the NVMe storage solution market. The company has partnerships with brands such as Phison, Crucial, Micron and more. We expect to see the first batch of PCIe Gen 5 NVMe SSDs by the end of 2022.
PCIe Gen 5 SSD Vs PCIe Gen 4 SSD
According to the AMD presentation, PCIe Gen 5 NVMe offers sequential read speeds of at least 60 percent faster than PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs. We expect a similar improvement in sequential read speeds.
Is PCIe Gen 5 SSD good for gaming?
While an SSD may not directly affect gaming performance (in terms of frame rate or graphics quality), a faster SSD can significantly improve game load time. Considering how games are getting bigger and more complex, PCIe Gen 5 loads PC games with NVMe SSD PC PCs faster than PC with NVMe SSD.
Launch the PCIe Gen 5 NVMe SSD
The first batch of PCIe Gen 5 based NVMe SSDs will be available in the market by the end of 2022 along with Ryzen 7000 processors and AM5 motherboards. We expect new SSDs to be launched worldwide by this end, including in India. Year.
When it comes to price, PCIe Gen 5 SSDs are likely to be on the more expensive side compared to PCIe Gen 4 SSDs. Like almost every technology, the price of PCIe Gen 5 SSDs is likely to decrease in the coming years and we can also expect the price of PCIe Gen 4 SSDs to decrease after the launch of PCIe Gen 5 NVMe SSDs.
