Kioxia has just unveiled their new XG7 and XG7-P NVMe SSDs, filling out their PCIe 4.0-powered range of storage products with enterprise and datacenter solutions already on the market.
The new Kioxia XG7 SSD offers at least 6.3GB/sec reads and 4.6GB/sec writes, so it might not be the very best -- but bloody hell we're talking over 6GB/sec reads. The higher-end Kioxia XG7-P drive comes in up to 2TB and 4TB capacities, while the XG7 comes in 256GB to 1TB.
Kioxia is the first to offer client-focused OEM SSDs with 4TB capacities, and should find their way into systems in 2021.
Alvaro Toledo, vice president of SSD marketing and product planning at KIOXIA America, Inc: "KIOXIA is leading the transition to next generation storage with our all-encompassing PCIe 4.0 SSD product line and our all-new XG7/XG7-P Series. We are excited to complete our portfolio transition to PCIe 4.0, enabling the future of gaming, mobile computing and workstation applications".
