Gigabyte has teased a PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD that will be coming soon. While we do not have a release date it is more than likely that we will be able to learn about it at Computex 2019 keeping in mind that the event is just around the corner. Computex is a major platform where hardware companies show off new and upcoming products so we might see the Gigabyte PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD at the event.
There is not much that we know about the device. We can see that it is going to be released under the Aorus brand and that is going to use a 4th generation standard which is PCIe. You can check out the teaser that Gigabyte posted below:
Gigabyte recently enabled PCIe 4.0 on X470 and B450 motherboards, which is another hint that this product is around the corner. AMD Ryzen 3000 series and the upcoming AMD Navi graphics cards are going to support this standard so you will need to have AMD hardware in order to take advantage of this new standard right away. The new AMD X570 motherboards will support this new standard as well.
Reports and leaks have mentioned that Intel is also going to implement this standard but from what we have heard Intel is going to take some time. We might hear something new from Intel this year at Computex and I hope that is is better than the 28-core publicity stunt that the company failed to pull off last year.
TEAMGROUP is introducing a new gaming brand called T-FORCE at COMPUTEX this year and one of their products include liquid-cooled SSDs. This is very interesting indeed and I do not think that it has commercially been done before. You will be able to see all this and much more at Taipei this year.
Let us know what you think about Gigabyte PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD coming soon and whether or not this is something that you would be interested in getting.
