Samsung's new PM1733 is a thing of beauty, and will be the first to use the company's in-house PCIe 4.0 SSD controller and fifth-generation 512Gb TLC V-NAND chips.
The upcoming Samsung PM1733 rocks up to huge 8GB/sec in random read speeds, and up to 1,500,000 IOPS. It will come in two form factors with the first being the U.2 drive that will use four PCIe 4.0 lanes and come with up to 30.72TB of storage. Samsung's other PM1733 SSD will come in a HHHL model (half height, half length) that will use eight PCIe 4.0 lanes, and up to 15.36TB of storage.
Samsung's new PM1733 SSD will work in existing PCIe 3.0 slots but you'll be restricted by the maximum PCIe 3.0 bandwidth and not receive all what the new PCIe 4.0-capable SSDs push out with up to 8GB/sec on the new PM1733.
