Phison showcases its new E26 PCIe 5.0 SSD controller at CES 2023 with I/O+ Optimisations
At CES 2023, Phison has once again showcased their new PS5026-E26 SSD controller, revealing 12+ GBps sequential read speeds and latencies that promise to be 30% lower than the company's last-generation PCIe 4.0 SSD controllers.
This time, Phison has showcased their E26 PCIe 5.0 SSD controller with new firmware that includes the company's I/O+ technology, which is designed to enable enhanced performance levels under sustained workloads. This further augments the performance of Phison's E26 SSD controller and enables better experiences for those who use Phison's SSDs during content creation and gaming workloads that require high levels of sustained SSD performance.
As the DirectStorage APIs begins to become more commonly used in games, optimisations like Phison's I/O+ technology could become important differentiating factors when comparing high-end PC SSDs. When modern games start demanding more from PC storage, SSDs that are optimised for higher levels of sustained performance may deliver stronger gaming experiences, especially for games that utilise ultra high resolution textures or are open world in nature.
In 2023 we expect to see many SSD manufacturers release new drives that are based on Phison's new E26 SSD controller, and we also expect to see the first DirectStorage PC games to launch. Currently, Forespoken is expected to be the first DirectStorage game to launch, and it is due to release on January 24th.
