Kioxia Introduces First EDSFF PCIe 5.0 Solid State Drives

Published

on

Kioxia has announced the release of the CD7 E3.S. According to the manufacturer, these are the industry’s first Enterprise and Data Center (EDSFF) E3.S SSDs equipped with a PCIe 5.0 interface.

Engineering prototypes that served as the basis for production products were presented by Kioxia at last year’s Flash Memory Summit. The off-the-shelf SSDs feature increased capacity, which improves energy efficiency and efficiency in rack space.

EDSFF E3.S drives are better suited for high-performance, high-performance servers and storage than the 2.5-inch legacy HDDs. In particular, the new form factor improves the thermal performance and airflow in the rack, while the E3.S drives support a higher power budget and better signal integrity to achieve PCIe 5.0 and higher performance.

By participating in the development of EDSFF, Kioxia is able to unleash the full potential of flash memory and NVMe and PCIe technologies in partnership with leading server and storage vendors.

CD7 E3.S series includes SSDs up to 7.68TB equipped with PCIe 5.0 x2 interface. A small number of lines increases the number of connected devices. The drives use 3D TLC BiCS FLASH manufactured by Kioxia. The sequential read speed reaches 6450 MB / s, and the performance on read operations with random access – 1,050,000 IOPS. Read and write latencies are 75 μs and 14 μs, respectively. These values ​​are approximately 17% and 60% lower than the latency provided by the previous generation PCIe 4.0 SSD Kioxia. The manufacturer does not quote the resource and prices.

A convenient feature of the E3.S SSD is built-in status LEDs, eliminating the need for LEDs in the drive tray.

The company is already shipping preview samples of its CD7 E3.S series drives to select OEMs.

Rumor Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After

A steep rise in the value of major cryptocurrencies triggered a cascade of events that resulted in the collapse of prices for new video cards. Many models have fallen in price, including top ones like the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti: with a recommended price of $1,200 (in the US), it is offered by the largest American retailers, Newegg and Amazon, for less than $1,000.

Rumor: Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Drops in Price

A small price gap between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12GB of memory has led Nvidia to suspend shipments of GPUs to partners for the latter. So wrote one of the Twitter users familiar with the situation. It is impossible to confirm or refute these words, but in general such a development of events can be considered quite probable.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The database of the SiSoftware Sandra test package has fresh data on the upcoming Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro graphics cards. These are graphics accelerators for workstations that are designed for engineering tasks.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The A50 Pro has a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe cores (128 execution units/1024 FP32 cores), while the A40 Pro is likely to get a stripped-down version of the chip. The clock frequency is 2.45 GHz.

Both cards have 6 GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In this regard, both models are similar to the Arc A380 mobile card, which has almost the same configuration.

Thus, the company continues to prepare its entry-level products. When high-performance gaming and professional solutions based on the ACM-G10 GPU will appear, it is not reported. It is also not yet clear whether the Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro cards will be available in retail or whether they will appear only as part of workstations.

Earlier, Intel introduced its first gaming graphics card for $150.
