GALAX Launches HOF PRO M.2 SSD which Supports PCIe 4.0

The all new HOF Pro M.2 SSD is one of the early adapters that support PCIe 4.0 now in the market, which shows amazing reading and writing speed. Its Sequential Read/Write can reach up to 5000/4400MB/s and 750000/700000 IOPS for Random Read/Write, bringing the game to the next level. The 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Desktop Processor with the AMD X570 chipset is the world's first PC platform to support PCIe 4.0 connectivity. AMD is leading advanced technologies and was a driving force behind bringing PCIe 4.0 capabilities to market.

HOF Pro M.2 SSD looks almost the same with the last generation, but its performance is beyond comparison, the secret lays within the all new controller - Phison PS5016-E16. Using 28nm process and innovative technology support, it enhances the HOF Pro M.2 performance to maximum 5G/s and fully evolved no matter in sequential read/write or random read/write. The intelligent and powerful PS5016-E16 controller that supports PCIe 4.0, internally integrated intelligent temperature control and a variety of data error-recovery systems, providing extraordinary power for HOF PRO M.2 with reliable data protection.
"GALAX has been focusing on improving user experience through innovation, the GALAX HOF Pro PCIe M.2 is a result of joint co-operation between AMD, GALAX and Phison, we are glad to be one of the first manufacturers to launch PCIe 4.0 based SSDs" said Alex Lam, CEO of Galaxy Microsystems Limited. Besides the E16 controller, the GALAX HOF Pro PCIe M.2 also utilizes Toshiba original 3D NAND flash, and offers 1TB and 2TB as capacity option.

Lam is lame..... They are NOT the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or even 5th mfgr to launch such drives, with many others beating them to the punch, if recent press releases/headlines over the past few weeks are accurate....

Seems more like he is just trying to be a "me-too" crack'emhead, just to get their name in the news, so sad.......

And another premium NVMe to use pathetic Phison controllers... What's up with Toshiba, Micron, Marvell, Samsung? Why in the world are they still slumbering?

I'm confused with this PCIe 4.0 SSD drive. Are these new SSD reap the full speed with Z390 board? Or does it need a new board to achieve full speed?

Z390 is a PCIe 3.0 board, it won't support PCIe 4.0 advertised speeds (if at all those NVMes) and definitely will require a new board that directly supports PCIe 4.0 gen (atm x570, but Intel is developing PCIe 5.0 so next year we might see PCIe 4.0 popping out outside of AMD's camp).
