Seagate Unveils Fastest Ever SSD at 10GB/s

Solid state drives keep trying to reach new speeds, but right now, Seagate has taken the cake in that regard. The storage giant has showcased a production-ready model of its fastest-ever SSD, which features a throughput of 10GB/s. It also meets Open Compute Project (OCP) specfiications, which is perfect for hyperscale data centers requiring the fastest SSDs and sustainable standards. The 10GB/s speed of the new SSD is more than 4GB/s faster than other models, and it works with any system that supports Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe). NVMe was developed in part by Seagate to replace SATA and eliminate bottlenecks, so it's no surprise that Seagate has acheived these speeds. The 10GB/s SSD accomodates 16-lane PCIe slots, which helps give it that fast throughput. Seagate is also working on an eight-lane PCIe SSD, which only tops out at 6.7GB/s, but still puts it as the fastest eight-lane PCIe SSD around. The 10GB/s SSD is perfect for companies where speed and/or processing data for object storage are the most important factors, while the 6.7GB/s model is great for those that need speed yet are constrained by cost or power requirements.

Seagate plans to show off the 10GB/s and 6.7GB/s SSDs later this week during the Open Compute Project Summit in San Jose, California. A launch date for these SSDs is expected later this summer.

These are cool for a single slot.
If you go big, though, you can go a lot faster. :)
