On the heels of a new PCIe 4.0 flagship SSD and new DDR5 memory, TeamGroup is releasing its first PCIe Gen5 SSD under its gaming sub-brand T-Force that is part of the company’s Cardea series.

It is capable of maximum sequential read speeds of over 13GB/s and write speeds exceeding 12GB/s, and a maximum storage capacity of 4TB. If they follow the same as capacities as the T-Force Cardea A440 Pro SSD, then they’ll come in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities.

While the T-Force Cardea A440 Pro SSD had aluminium and graphene cooling options, TeamGroup says that the cooling options available for the T-Force Cardea PCIe Gen5 SSD will be announced when it launches.

TeamGroup says the T-Force PCIe Gen5 SSD will support the latest NVMe 2.0 and will be enhanced using proprietary technology to improve durability and product lifespan and until its launch, they will continue to refine its specifications and technologies.

According to them, the Gen5 SSDs will be able to meet the demands of the next-gen gaming computing market, video streaming, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and other next-gen digital domains.

TeamGroup isn't the only company we've heard from regarding PCIe Gen5 SSDs, Samsung is another, but they look to be in the 2.5-inch and the 3-inch EDSFF (E3.S) form factors.

TeamGroup said that they plan to start producing the drives in the third quarter of 2022. We will update this article when we have more information. As a comparison, the 4TB T-Force Cardea A440 Pro SSD with the aluminium cooling option cost S$989.99 while the graphene cooled SSD was S$899.99.
