APACER has announced the world's first consumer-grade PCIe 5.0 NVMe M.2 SSD, which are capable of up to 13,000MB/sec (13GB/sec) reads and up to 12,000MB/sec (12GB/sec) writes.

The new APACER PCIe Gen 5 NVMe SSDs are available in two versions: a standard APACER design, and then the ZADAK one, which looks virtually the same. Both of the new PCIe 5.0-ready SSDs support the latest NVMe 2.0 standard, with reads of up to 13GB/sec and writes of up to 12GB/sec on both drives.

You'll need a PCIe 5.0-ready motherboard (Intel Z690 or AMD X670E/X670) to get the huge speeds of 13GB/sec+ but both the APACER + ZADAK PCIe 5.0 SSDs are backwards compatible, working on PCIe 4.0 at half the speed.

The APACER AS2280F5 is designed with "exclusive high-quality metal cooling fans", with the company also using "built-in multiple protection technologies to ensure the correctness and stability of data reading and writing". The difference between the APACER AS2280F5 and ZADAK TWSG5 is that the ZADAK drive comes with two types of heat sinks: ultra-thin graphene, and aluminum.

Both of the new PCIe 5.0-powered SSDs have a 5-year global warranty.
