MSI plans to reveal some interesting new SSD products at Computex

Fast portable SSDs, PCIe 5.0, pioneering coolers and more – MSI has some interesting SSD tech to show us

MSI have started to tease what they will be showing us at Computex 2024, and it looks like storage fans can look forward to seeing a lot of new SSD tech.

For starters, we will have a new PCIe 5.0 SSD called the SPATIUM M560. This drive aims to make PCIe 5.0 storage more mainstream with Phison’s 7nm DRAM-less E31T controller. With 1-2TB capacities and storage speeds of up to 10 GB/s, this drive is going to be quick. Even so, the MSI SPATIUM M580 is faster.

Alongside new M.2 SSDs we have a “pioneering” new SSD cooling solution. With “the world’s first non-metal vapor chamber thermal solution”, MSI are ready to show us a unique SSD cooling solution. But is it as good as it sounds?

MSI Storage Expands Portability and Efficiency: Magnetic Portable SSD, Locatable SSD Enclosure, 7 nm PCIe 5.0 SSD, and Non-metal VC thermal Solution

Snap the DATAMAG 40 Gbps/20 Gbps Magnetic Portable SSD to iPhones for high-quality video recordings or any device to expand storage capacity with transfer rates of up to 40 Gbps, housed in a sleek aluminium alloy casing, powered by the PHISON U21 USB 4.0 controller. Use the DATAVAULT 20 Gbps SSD Enclosure, which can be located with Apple Find My app, assuring data or captures are never lost.

The SPATIUM M560 PCIe 5.0 NVMe M.2, featuring the 7 nm DRAM-less controller PHISON E31T, offers power efficiency and blazing transfer rates up to 10 GB/s in 1 TB and 2 TB capacities. Pioneering cooling technology, the world’s first non-metal vapor chamber thermal solution for SSDs dissipates heat through a two-phase flow transition of gas and liquid with minimal signal interference, ensuring rapid and silent heat exchange for efficient data transfers in a lightweight design.

For your portable storage needs, MSI are getting ready to showcase their DATAMAG 40 Gbps/20 Gbps Magnetic Portable SSD. This drive can deliver up to 40 Gbps speeds over USB 4.0 using Phison’s U21 SSD controller. MSI also have their DATAVAULT 20 Gbps SSD Enclosure on show, which can be tracked and located using the Apple “Find My” app, ensuring that date never gets lost.

We expect to see this new SSD tech and more at the MSI Computex booth next week.
