KIOXIA Boosts its Exceria series with new Exceria PRO and Exceria G2 Series M.2 NVMe SSDs

KIOXIA has just revealed two new high-speed M.2 NVMe SSDs for the PC market, including their first PCIe 4.0 based M.2 SSD, the EXCERIA PRO. These new SSDs are designed for the DIY PC market. 

Who is KIOXIA? KIOXIA is what remains of Toshiba Memory Corporation, which was spun off from Toshiba following the company's financial issues. Today, KIOXIA is a privately owned electronics company that was estimated to have around 19% of the global revenue share within the flash memory market. So if you were wondering what happened to Toshiba-branded SSDs, they are now KIOXIA. 

On the high-end, KIOXIA has its new Exceria Pro SSD, which is said to deliver more than a 2x maximum sequential read speed than its existing Exceria Plus SSDs. Since the Exceria Plus offered sequential read speeds of up to 3,400 MB/s, we know that the new Exceria Pro series can deliver sequential read speeds of over 6,800 MB/s, which should be more than fast enough for Sony's PlayStation 5 console.   

On the lower end of the SSD market, KIOXIA's releasing their Exceria G2, which is said to offer users up to 2TB of SSD capacity with sequential performance of over 2,000 MBps. KIOXIA is due to reveal more information about both of these new SSDs at a later date. These two new SSDs will help bring more competition to the SSD market, which is always a good thing for consumers. 

Below is KIOXIA's press release.
