With Gen 5 SSDs slowly make an appearance, we're wondering, is your rig ready for PCIe 5.0?

actual performance bottleneck is random, not sequential performance and here we're bottlenecked by (current) nand design (better random performance would require drastically more channels, like two orders of magnitude more of them, which is not feasible/economic), so this is basically all snake oil
PCIe3.0x4 is more than fine for nand

Nope. In fact I'm still on 10th Gen PCIe 3.0 wondering what all the fuss is about. My GPU is well under the tier at which PCIe 3.0 vs 4.0 makes any difference, I'm still rocking a super-reliable MX500 and game load times are often only 0-10% slower than paying +50% more for that 'premium experience'. Wi-Fi / Ethernet don't benefit, and my B460 Mortar Wifi motherboard cost me only 3/7ths of that of what they want for same B760 Mortar WiFi model. So if I'm happy with what I've got then what would I really gain by 'upgrading' - spending a small fortune chasing numbers on a piece of paper?...

No.
I have to live with PCIe 4.0 at the moment.
I don’t know the result if I use 2xPCIe 4.0 nvmes in raid 0….

Ready, but going to let the tech mature until at least Q4@2024. No point to buy the early stuff and at that point, I would need to reinstall windows anyways!

I don't know how to answer this question because it's not well-worded. My X570 motherboard doesn't have PCI-Express v5.0 but I'm sure that if I were to drop in a PCI-e5 SSD, it would still work so technically, my PC does support PCI-Express v5.0 SSDs but only at PCI-Express v4.0 speeds.

A much better question would be "Do you have a motherboard with PCI-Express v5.0?"

Hi,
No idea but have to guess no.

Nope, my budget B660 only supports 4.0.

Tho it doesn't matter to me, I only use gen 3 NVMe drives and a Sata SSD for gaming only, OS is on my fastest one and its more than fast enough for me.
+ on the GPU side it won't be needed anytime soon since I only buy budget-mid range at most.

i don't have even PCIe 4.0 and no m.2 nvme as well, my laptop have m.2 at PCIe 3.0, i don't see cards or ssds supporting PCIe 5.0 currently, until every cards and ssds 5.0 supported the 6.0 is already existed

I'm only PCIe 3.0 for now as I have zero need for more than 3GB/s. Only in recent weeks have I even found a use where I actually use the throughput of my WD Blue SN570. For a job that takes about 12 seconds max, once a day or so. Even a SATA SSD would be fine.

Ooooo, then I'd have to wait 48 seconds!

Third option - no need this for SSD, as Those SSDs are really hot and use massive radiators or active fans. When forced i whould use slower SSD to not have to not need those 2 cons. Stability and silence is currently more important than maximum speed, as current SSDs are already fast enough for any normal use.

Hi,
Not really only new hardware is compatible
Same hardware companies laying off people because of poor sells mostly because of stupid high prices.

I have a Zen 4 system with a B650 motherboard, but the answer is still no. MSi decided not to use Gen 5 on this board at all. Not that I mind, though, I don't even fully utilise Gen 4 by far anyway.

Most of the market takes years to upgrade, not upgrading every gen, I actually am surprised how high the yes's are. :)

Luckily its backwards compat so one can still buy a gen 5 SSD and use it in a slower gen. I use a 980 pro on my gen 3 board.

Which doesnt matter, I dont sit benching all day :) and its write speeds are only slightly above 3.0 anyway.

3.0 will also still get the io/sec and random i/o performance boosts which are well below its bandwidth limits.

That's the only reason why I got PCI-e 4.0 SSDs in my system: to try. :)

...even though i know it will be impossible to tell any difference outside of benchmarks.
And that's why I don't care about 5.0. Even the speed of 4.0 can't be felt outside of benchmarks.

I upgraded two months ago and plan to keep the motherboard for at least a few years, so PCIe 5.0 was a must-have feature.

That said, I have no plans to buy a PCIe 5.0 SSD at this time. I'll get one when my current SSD dies or if I really need more space, neither of which is a problem right now.
