There is no doubt that NVMe SSDs only because of the enormous amount of improvements they provide on hard drives and especially NVMe SSDs that make use of the PCIe interface, which with their enormous transfer speed are a before and after in performance. Especially in games and in applications such as 3D modeling or real-time video editing that require high search and data transfer speeds.
KIOXIA did not want to be left behind and the creators of the 3D BiCS FLASH memory have decided to implement their new technology in two M.2 drives of type 2280 baptized as EXCERIA PRO and EXCERIA G2. Which are compatible with the management program SSD Utility KIOXIA itself for the supervision and maintenance of the SSD itself.
KIOXIA NVMe EXCERIA PRO and G2 SSD Specifications
Starting with the EXCERIA PRO, we find an NVMe M.2 SSD that makes use of the 4-line PCI Express 4.0 interface, which allows it to offer twice the bandwidth of its predecessor, the EXCERIA PLUS. So we are talking about Sequential read and write speeds of 6800/6400 megabytes per second At the very least, which puts the EXCERIA PRO at the level of other solutions of the same type and becomes an excellent option for high-end gaming PCs.
Regarding the EXCERIA G2, It’s about a NVMe SSD for 4-lane PCIe 3.0 interface with the same form factor as the EXCERIA PRO, but it is intended for a more general market, since its transfer speed of more than 2000 MB / s. So it is a type of memory for much more modest and general systems. Its transfer speed, although it may seem low compared to the EXCERIA PRO, is higher than that of an SSD with a SATA3 interface.
The storage capacity of both NVMe SSDs? Both can reach 2 TB of storage, but we must bear in mind that they are figures given in multiples of 1000 and not 1024, so the final storage is somewhat lower. Both the EXCERIA PRO and the EXCERIA G2 have used the BRICS 3D memory, KIOXIA’s implementation of 3D NAND memory, which enables greater storage capacity than conventional NAND memory by vertically stacking multiple 2D NAND memory chips.
They are not for sale at the moment, but KIOXIA will present both EXCERIA PRO and EXCERIA G2 at the ChinaJoy in Shanghai that begins this July 30 and ends on August 2.
