PCIe 4.0 SSDs are now available to order in the UK

AMD’s X570 platform is coming and with it comes PCIe 4.0, delivering never before seen read/write speeds from M.2 NVMe SSDs thanks to the raw bandwidth that’s offered by the latest PCI-SIG standard. 

Starting today, PCIe 4.0 SSDs are available to order within the UK, ushering forth a new era of SSD performance, with Corsair and Gigabyte leading the charge with their Force MP600 and Aorus Gen4 SSDs respectively, each of which is available in 1TB and 2TB configurations. 

Being an early adopter has its issues, and with PCIe 4.0 that issue is pricing, with Corsair’s 1TB MP600 costing £248.99 while Gigabyte’s copper-clad 1TB Aorus Gen4 costs £269.99. 2TB versions of these drives will costs £469.99 and £479.99 respectively. 

In time PCIe 4.0 SSDs will become cheaper, as more controller vendors enter the fray with competing  PCIe 4.0 offerings in late 2019/2020. Faster drives will also arrive in time, but if you need the fastest PCIe 4.0 SSDs on 7/7, these two SSDs are your primary options. Sequential read speeds of up to 5,000MB/s don’t come cheap.
