Phison teases Gen5 SSD controller on AMD X670 chipset at 12.5 GB/sec

Phison unveiled its next-generation PS2026-E26 platform earlier this week, which will be the basis for PCIe 5.0 x4 storage solution for consumer and enterprise solutions.

But in a recent test, Phison tested its new E26 SSD controller on AMD’s next-gen X670 chipset with the use of the ASUS X670 Crosshair Hero motherboard. In this new test, we see that Phison’s next-gen E26 PCIe 5.0 SSD controller is capable of a whopping 12.5GB/s reads and 10GB/s writes.

If you have a new Intel Z690-based motherboard or one of AMD’s upcoming next-gen X670 or X670E motherboards, then you’ll be all set for the world of PCIe 5.0 SSDs. That is, if you have the need…the need for speed…and the greed for more and more storage performance.

Phison posting a whopping 12.5GB/s is great to see as an enthusiast, as I love pushing 7GB/s+ on my Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus SSDs. But 12.5 GB/sec+ is another level.
