The new PNY CS3150 Gen5 SSD uses the very latest NVMe PCIe Gen5 x4 interface that pumps away at up to 12GB/sec (12,000MB/sec) sequential reads and up to 11GB/sec (11,000MB/sec) sequential writes. If you are an enthusiast, professional, or content creator who wants some of the fastest SSD storage you can get, you've got it here with the CS3150 Gen5 SSD.

PNY will have 1TB and 2TB capacities of its new CS3150 Gen5 SSD, with multiple models: black, white, and black with RGB lighting. The new revolutionary heatsinks have an innovative design with two ultra-quiet fans that will not only have kick-ass heat dissipation but keep it cooler and keep those huge transfer speeds at their peak. The hotter the SSD gets, the slower it will get... you don't want to lose that huge 12GB/sec speed, so the dual-fan cooler will take care of that as much as it can.
