Does Samsung has a PCIe 5.0 SSD on the horizon?

Samsung's next-gen 990 PRO PCIe 5.0 SSD has been spotted

It looks like Samsung's preparing to launch a new PCIe 5.0 SSD

Samsung has just submitted two new SSD designs to the Korean RRA, models that are likely to be 1TB and 2TB versions of their next-generation 990 PRO SSD. 

Samsung's two new SSD models have the model names MZ-V9P2T0 and MZ-V9P2T0, SSDs that are speculated to be 2TB and 1TB models of Samsung's 990 PRO SSD respectively. Samsung's current-generation 1TB 980 PRO SSD is called the MZ-V8P1T00, and the move from V8 to V9 with Samsung's new SSD model supposedly signifies that Samsung's new SSD will be called the 990 PRO. 

With new PCIe 5.0 compatible motherboards coming from both AMD and Intel this year, Samsung's new 990 PRO SSD is likely to be one of the first PCIe 5.0 SSDs to hit the market. Samsung has already created enterprise-grade PCIe 5.0 SSDs, making consumer-grade PCIe 5.0 SSDs a likely next move for the company. 

Today's PCIe 4.0 SSDs can deliver sequential read speeds of over 7,000 MB/s, and new PCIe 5.0 SSDs should be able to deliver speeds that are up to two times faster than that. Samsung has already created a 13 GB/s PCIe 5.0 SSD with their PM1743 series of enterprise storage solutions, and faster speeds could be possible with Samsung's next-generation SSD models.

If Samsung are ready, the company may reveal their PCIe 5.0 990 PRO SSD alongside new PCIe 5.0 compatible motherboard designs from Intel and AMD later this year, riding the momentum of Intel's Raptor Lake CPUs and AMD's Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 series platform. Alternatively, Samsung could reveal their 990 PRO SSD at CES in early 2023.

Useful for enterprise solutions but it would be nice if games made use of our hardware properly, GPU's and CPU's are very inefficiently used and the 7GB/s NVME's we currently have are barely touched making them only slightly faster for loading than a SATA based SSD.Quote

Takes time. The ability hasn't been around that long outside of consoles and even then not long.

Windows 11 was a part of the increasing modern tech adoption considering it's stringent minimum specsQuote
