PCIe 5.0 SSD will be longer and wider, and the size specification can reach 25110

Recently, SSD master manufacturer Qunlian announced that it will cooperate with AMD and Micron to jointly build the PCIe Gen5 ecosystem, announcing the advent of the PCIe Gen5 SSD generation . In terms of speed, the sequential speed of PCIe 5.0 SSD will exceed 10000MB/s, which is a great improvement compared to the current flagship PCIe 4.0's 7000MB/s.

According to TechPowerUp, the specifications of PCIe 5.0 SSD may be different from the current mainstream 2280, which is expected to reach 25110.

The current 2280 SSD is 80mm in length and 22mm in width. In addition to this, there are 2230 SSDs for small devices and 22110 SSDs for servers.

PCI-SIG will reportedly offer a wider 25 mm option for M.2 SSDs in late 2020. Gigabyte said in the presentation information for its X670 and X670E motherboards that this series of motherboards will support 25110 SSDs. This could mean that PCIe 5.0 SSDs need a larger form factor due to being faster and hotter. 

Phison has released the flagship PCIe 5.0 SSD controller chip PS5026-E26, and it is expected that some manufacturers will launch PCIe 5.0 SSDs equipped with this controller in the second half of this year .
