Galax prepares SSD line with PCI-E 3.0 x4 interface

The popular video card maker Galax, also known as Galaxy, is working on a new NVMe solid-state drive (SSD) line that will come with a PCI-E 3.0 x4 slot that can provide bandwidth of up to 32 GB/sec. The upcoming SSDs will also join the company’s Hall of Fame (HOF) line of high-end products.

Preliminary images describe devices that take a single slot and that are about 17 cm long. The SSDs will be very fast – they will reach up to 2600 MB/sec of sequential read speed, up to 1300 MB/sec of sequential write speed, 300 000 IOPS (4K random read) and 200 000 IOPS (4K random write).

The upcoming SSD line will be based on TLC NAND flash memory and will provide capacities from 120 GB to 2 TB. The drives in the line will target hardware enthusiasts and gamers. Unfortunately there’s no information on how much these drives will cost but we will probably find out when the new and yet unnamed line debuts during CES 2016 in Las Vegas. The exhibition show will take place in January 2016.
