Looking for a speedier class of SSDs then you might not have to wait long
Updated: Mar 8, 2023 4:02 pm
As the new AM5 platform was released, so was introduced the newer PCIe 5 spec interface. But as nothing yet had the parts to match, you may be wondering about the PCIe 5 SSD release date.
There was the expected case of RDNA 3 GPUs based on that platform to match the motherboards but that wasn’t the case even with the best GPUs. As such we look at where to buy PCIe 5 SSDs as they are expected sooner than later.
It’s been nearly a year since the mention of the SSDs but even still not many or now have come to market. So when can we expect to see any?
PCIe 5 SSD release date
Although it’s taken some time, many PCIe 5 SSDs are expected to launch in 2023 onwards. With plenty of slots to fill there are a lot of expectations from them.
And so we have seen the likes of the Apacer AS2280F5 announced and shown off and expected to come, but still nowhere to be seen. Even Corsairs MP700 has the same issues, of talk but no show.
But the Gigabyte AORUS Gen5 has shown up since the beginning of March 2023, it can be found out of stock on Newegg but it’s there. The same as on Amazon and Gigabyte’s official store. So you now just have to wait for it to come back at some point.
Although if you’re looking for more release dates then you might be left waiting. As there hasn’t been anything concrete as to when to expect these SSDs except sometime this year.
So you just have to be on the lookout for them to drop at some point. And it might take some time to get there but it will be worth the doubling of speed.
As these Gigabyte NVMes boast a significant 10,000 MB/s potential, if they can ever sustain it.
