Nextorage PCIe® 5.0 NVMe™ SSDs “X Series” Now Available

(Nextorage Corporation; President: Katsuyuki Honda; Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Japan) announces that it will start selling PCIe Gen 5.0-compliant NVMe SSDs “X Series” on FEB.4.2024

Model with heat sink

Maximum read speed of 12,400 MB/s, maximum write speed of 11,800 MB/s[1].

The PCIe 5.0-compliant X Series is equipped with a high-performance controller and advanced NAND flash for unparalleled high-speed performance, making it ideal for professional use cases that require high-load processing, such as 4K/8K content creators and data scientists, as well as for users pursuing high-end gaming environments.
It is ideal for users who pursue high-end gaming environments. The NN5PRO-2000 is ideal for professional use cases such as 4K/8K content creators and data scientists who require high-load processing, as well as for users pursuing high-end gaming environments.

* This is the measured value of NN5PRO-2TB.

Dual heat sinks for optimal temperature management

Dual heat sinks cool the controller and flash separately.
The Gen5 SSD, which generates high heat, achieves optimal temperature management by balancing cooling to a temperature that ensures the reliability of each.

Space-saving design in pursuit of cooling efficiency

The unique “two-story structure + heat pipe” design saves space and prevents interference with other devices. In addition, the use of heat pipes distributes heat evenly within the heat sink for more efficient cooling. (Patent pending)

* Please check the external dimensions of your motherboard before purchasing.

Optimized TIM (Thermal Interface Material) for each part

The thickness of the thermal pad is optimized for each IC chip to ensure accurate contact with the heat sink, effectively transferring heat and maximizing performance. In addition, thermal grease is used in the controller section to lower thermal resistance and efficiently transfer heat from the controller to the heat sink.

* TIM = Thermal Interface Materials

Quiet & Power-saving Fan-less Heat Sink

Fan-less heat sinks do not increase power consumption or generate noise. Since there are no moving parts like heat sinks with fans, durability is improved and stable cooling performance is provided over the long term.

[1] The maximum performances in the text represent the performance of NN5PRO-2TB. Performance and power consumption may differ depending on the measurement conditions. Since the measured value also depends on factors other than the items described above, the indicated performance are not guaranteed. The measured value is based on the following conditions:
< Sequential transfer speed >
CPU : AMD Ryzen 9 7950X
Motherboard : ASRock X670E Taichi Carrara
OS : Windows 10 Professional 64bit
Measurement software : CrystalDiskMark8, 1GB range, SEQ1M Q16T1
< IOPS >
CPU : Intel Core i9 13900K
Motherboard : ASRock Z790 Taichi Carrara
OS : Windows 10 Professional 64bit
Measurement software : CrystalDiskMark8, 1GB range, RND4K Q32T16

[2] TBW is calculated based on JEDEC 218/219 workload.

[3] MTBF is calculated based on simulation software (Relex7.3). High capacity drives are expected to have low MTBF and the minimum MTBF applies to all capacities.

[4] Capacity is based on 1 GB = 1 billion bytes. A portion of the memory is used for system files and may vary.

[5] Specified by the Flash temperature (not the environmental temperature.) Maximum performance is not guaranteed over the entire operating temperature range.
