The development of the first PCIe 5.0 SSDs has just taken a big hit with the industry’s first PCIe 5.0 SSD controller and Marvell is leading the movement for the super fast storage solution of the future.
Currently, the big data that is released through cloud data centers implies the need for faster and higher bandwidth storage. Without it, cloud gaming will fail when the next generation of games comes on the scene and seeks intensely fast service so you can play your games from any device you have.
According to Marvell news publication, with PCIe 5.0 support, the Bravera SC5 "doubles performance compared to PCIe 4.0 SSDs."
In terms of security, Marvell claims that these new additions to the flash family "offer FIPS-compliant root (RoT), 256-bit AES encryption and multiple key revocation" in order to meet strict security needs. of cloud data centers.
Everything is looking up at the storage front. With ever-increasing gaming and data security one of the top priorities of our technological age, we welcome this breakthrough with open arms (and open slots).
While this technology was initially promoted for data centers, it won't be long before even our desktop gaming computers are compatible with the technology. Intel Alder Lake has support for PCIe 5.0, and while it looks like AMD is joining PCIe 4.0 for its next round of processors, I don't suspect it will be long before we follow suit.
