Mixed with Toshiba Memory's in-house and latest 96-later BiCS4 FLASH NAND we have up to 6.7GB/sec transfer rates. Yeah, 6700MB/sec.

Toshiba's previous-gen CD5 and CM5 were based on PCIe 3.0 x4 lanes with max speeds of around 3.2GB/sec, so the lanes opening up on the PCIe 4.0 highway drive speeds at up to 6.7GB/sec is a huge win. Even more so when you consider it's a huge 12x speed improvement over the normal SATA drives at 525MB/sec (0.5GB/sec compared to 6.7GB/sec is huge).

The new CM6 and CD6 drives are offered in the SFF-TA-1001 specification SSD form factor, which is otherwise known as U.3 -- this provides more flexibility in the server space. The U.3 standard means you can plug in any flavor of SSD, meaning you can throw in super-fast NVMe drives into any SSD socket without much investment.
