PCIe 5.0 and 10+ GB/s speeds - Phison reveals their E26 SSD controller and more

Phison's showcasing their first PCIe 5.0 SSD controller at CES 2022  

Phison is currently one of the biggest names in the SSD business, with their controllers powering SSDs from Corsair, Sabrent, Gigabyte, MSI, Patriot, Seagate and more. PCIe 4.0 SSDs are currently the fastest available, but the world is preparing to transition to PCIe 5.0 connectivity, giving future SSDs a potential 2x speed bump.

PCIe 4.0 lanes can deliver 16 Gbps transfer speeds, while PCIe 5.0 lanes deliver transfer rates of up to 32Gbps. Future M.2 NVMe SSDs could deliver 16GB/s speeds using four PCIe 5.0 lanes, giving the PCIe 5.0 standard an insane level of SSD potential.

At CES 2022, Phison has confirmed that they will be showcasing their new PS5026-E26 SSD controller, which they have claimed can scale beyond 10 GB/s while meeting the "power requirements of all-day computing". More exact performance data will be revealed at CES, but what the company has claimed so far is impressive.   

     Phison Electronics Corp., a global leader in NAND flash controller integrated circuits and storage solutions, will showcase its lineup of next-generation gaming solutions for customers, partners, media and other interested parties during CES 2022, January 5-8 exclusively by private virtual demos. The new-class of solutions include the company's first PCIe Gen5 controller for high-end desktop gaming, a future high-performance Gen4 solution, and demonstration of the next-generation game workload coming soon to PCs.

Phison, the leader in gaming-optimized SSDs pushes the boundaries of performance. The company's solutions power seamless experiences for modern console, desktop/notebook and mobile gaming, which are delivered to consumers through an extensive and diverse group of partners.

Alongside their high performance PS5026-E26 PCIe 5.0 SSD controller, Phison has also revealed their new PS5021-E21T DRAM-less SSD controller, enabling higher levels of performance than their older E19T, and E13T SSD controllers. These SSDs will deliver stronger performance levels and utilise more of the bandwidth available through PCIe 4.0, delivering greater performance levels for future low-cost PCIe 4.0 SSDs.

Finally, there Phison's PS-5013-E13T BGA SSD, which will be used in Xiomi's Black Shark 4 Gaming Smartphone. This SSD controller reportedly delivers a 69% increase in read/write performance, enabling a superior mobile gaming experience. 

    Highlighted gaming products Phison will preview on the virtual demos include:

PS5026-E26 - Phison's First PCIe Gen5 SSD Architecture

The E26 SSD solution is the best-in-class combination of performance and low-power using Phison's unique architecture. E26 is a customizable SSD platform designed for PCIe Gen5 that will span enterprise and consumer markets. The company's first Gen5 controller will ship in multiple form factors and features with the ability to scale beyond 10 GB/s while meeting power requirements for all-day computing. Phison will show the E26 for the first time at CES 2022.

PS5021-E21T - Phison's New High-Performance PCIe Gen4 DRAM-less Solution

The E21T demonstration will show Phison's new DRAM-less architecture as the future leader in next-generation mobile gaming. The E21T, the successor to the E19T, and E21T BGA, the successor to the E13T, break throughput performance barriers using the Gen4 interface to sets new standards in the user experience.

PS5013-E13T - Phison's BGA for Mobile Gaming

Xiaomi chose Phison's E13T BGA SSD and its superior performance and efficiency for the Black Shark 4 gaming phone series. Xiaomi credits the E13T BGA for delivering a 69 percent increase in read and write performance showing that NVMe redefines mobile gaming. Phison will show the Xiaomi Black Shark 4 during CES 2022 in a first-person Zoom demonstration.
