Recently at CES 2020, Solid State Storage Technology Corporation (SSSTC), formerly Lite-On Storage SBG, released a family of PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSDs that will be available later this year along with other client and enterprise solutions.
SSSTC is banking that PCIe NVMe Gen4 will be the future for the SSD industry. The first major change to the PCIe interface since 2010, its x16 slot configuration can reach approximately 32 gigabytes per second (GB/s) of data flowing in each direction. By comparison, the previous PCIe 3.0 format maxed out around 16 GB/s.
SSSTC expects to ship two PCIe Gen4 SSD models, the CA6 and EA1, one for client and another for the enterprise use, in the second half of the year.
In addition to its PCIe Gen4 announcement at CES, SSSTC also revealed its second generation EDSFF E1.S and E1.L SSDs for data centers and hyperscale environments.
