The tech giant has again offered it's customers the tech they can't resist Samsung, already one of the market leaders when it comes to solid-state drives, could cement its position at the top with the release of two new SSD lines. Not only do these products utilize the new PCIe 4.0 interface, but they are also fail-proof, according to the company. Samsung’s PM1733 and PM1735 series come in 19 different models covering the HHHL (card-type) and 2.5-inch U.2 formats. Designed for use in servers and data centers, their storage ranges from 0.8TB right up to a massive 30.72TB.
There has been a lot of buzz around the PCIe 4.0 standard since the arrival of AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series CPUs and the X570 platform, with companies such as gigabyte and Sabrent offering lightning-fast SSDs that take advantage of the massive bandwidth. Samsung’s new SSDs also use PCIe 4.0, allowing them to reach sequential write speeds of 3,800MB/s. Sequential reads are even more impressive: 6,400MB/s for the U.2 drives and 8,000MB/s for the card-type versions.
