MSI, the world's leading gaming PC hardware brand, is proud to announce the new SPATIUM M570 PRO Series, featuring the revolutionary PHISON E26 PCIe Gen 5 SSD controller and state-of-the-art 3D NAND flash. Designed to push the limits of storage performance, the SPATIUM M570 PRO Series SSD delivers an astonishing top read speed of 14 GB/s, breaking the world record and setting new industry standards.

The strong collaboration and cooperation between MSI and PHISON have made this record possible as both companies share in the excitement of pushing the envelope. "K.S.Pua, CEO of Phison Electronics, said that the cooperation between Phison and MSI started from the SSD product line. Since both companies have their own expertise in NAND controller and computer system integration respectively, and in addition to SSD, MSI has also actively expanded its strategy in the fields of gaming, content creators, commercial, industrial, robotics, and even automotive in recent years, where the application markets are in line with Phison's long-term strategy, so the two companies hit it off. The SPATIUM M570 Pro Series SSD announced by MSI this time adopted Phison's E26 SSD controller. Since the performance of PCIe 5.0 is much faster than the previous generation of PCIe 4.0, the two companies have conducted a lot of tests and discussions on power consumption and heat dissipation, which is a valuable cooperation experience. In the future, Phison will continue to support MSI through controller technology."



With the same "gamers first" attitude that made MSI products great, MSI continues redefining the boundaries of storage capabilities with unprecedented performance for the MSI SPATIUM M570 PRO Series SSD. Using the Lightning Gen 5 M.2 slot on the MSI MPG X670E CARBON WIFI motherboard, the performance is exceptional for the MSI SPATIUM M570 PRO Series SSD, powered by PHISON's PS5026-E26 controller. Our testing shows that the SPATIUM M570 PRO Series SSD can reach over 14 GB/s sequential read speeds and up to 12 GB/s write speeds, demonstrating that MSI continues to be a top provider of ultimate performance products, and allowing gamers to gain valuable milliseconds on latency or professionals to process ever bigger files even faster.

Wont that be one of Thermalright's M.2 heatsink?
Ok, tallest heatsink in the box so far? This doesn't exactly look any smaller than what they announced though.

Imagine bumping into that heatsink during assembly of your system, it would tear the entire NVME mounting system of the board. It's way too fragile for such large coolers.

That Q1 4K random read is only about twice as fast as mechanical HDD, that's the one that matters the most for day to day use.

Agreed, until they fix that, then gen 5, 6, 7 etc will mean practically NUTHIN to almost every average everyday user...

My question is: If MSI can get 14/12k MBs Seq. reads/writes from the E26, why can't/won't all the other drive makers do the same ?

Yea I know, firmware, optimizations yada yada yada....seems more like laziness/lack of effort IMHO :(

PCIe 5.0 SSDs really, really should draw less power. Close to PCIe 4.0 SSDs (with DRAM) at speeds up to 7000 MB/s. It doesn't look like we're about to get there soon.

Check again, you probably confused kilobytes for megabytes.

No. Faster flash chips.
Micron B58R is architecturally capable of up to 2,400MT throughput, which is what it will take to achieve the E26's full throughput capability of 14,000 MB/s.

As it stands at this moment in time, Micron's game-changing 232-Layer flash has only manifested itself to us at 1,600MT, which is not even the fastest speed flash we've come across to date.

If I need a GPU-sized cooler to run such speed, then I'll stay with Gen 4 drives, thanks.

There are many bottlenecks including bloatware that slows everything down. Here are some questions that people need to ask.

1. HOW FAST IS FAST over SSD Sata III that it does make a real difference in every day tasks? In my case it does not. I see no discernible increase in using my open office suit. Nor going on youtube and other things.

Where you will get your performance hit are with heavy data takes like video editing, photoshop and others. But again in my case it was not much to change over. The biggest increase I had was going from High End 32 GB DDR4 to 64 GB High End DDR4. That made a huge difference in my case.

You want increased speed you might look at getting a better ethernet/wifi setup as well.

I have a WD SN850 and tried it. It worked well however another problem came up.

2 EXCESSIVE HEAT. How much heat are NVME's are pulling? IHMO too damned much for long term computer component uses. I saw an overall temperature increase on my rig using my NVME. In my case I'm probably going to do this externally or somehow come up with a Rizer method to place that stick somewhere else to get positive air flow.

These are the main reasons why I have not joined up in the NVME race. I like to keep my rig as cool as possible to not only get peak performance off of my components but longevity of my components.

As I have been stating for a while the quality of current component are just not there. IMHO the quality really started to degrade faster in the beginning of 2020.

These days, you have to think about the entire computer than just piece by piece if you want the most optimum performance and durability for your rig.

Heat in your case is not a problem - the drive is small enough not to have an impact. Although, you really need good airflow to keep the drive itself cool enough.

I agree with the rest of your post. SSD speed isn't a concern for 99% of home users.

The only thing that would increase would be your up/download speeds, or transfers on your internal network/NAS ect..... yea, it may APPEAR that your rig is running faster, but in reality it is not...

Faster cpu's, GPU's, drives, ram (or moar), and mobo's are the only things that can actually do that, along with a well optimized, un-clustercrapped/garbaggio'd OS too :D

If a motherboard bios supports it, I would like to see gen 5 drives tested in gen 4 mode, if motherboard doesnt support it, then test them on a gen 4 board, curious if power usage and heat go down to sane levels.

Might be the way forward as i assume would still gain from any 4k i/o improvements.

Agreed. Besides, do game engines today & the ones from a decade ago or even more benefit from more than PCIe3 speeds?
TPU did a test on that over a year ago & it was concluded PCIe3 saturation is where its at. But game engines take time to develop & who knows what's in the development today?

On another note however, I do notice the fast loading times of levels & cells in gaming with an M.2 NVMe drive compared to a regular SSD. Perhaps its the game engine?
Benchmarking in PCMark10 or something else will indicated if other types of data can benefit from faster loading times.
