The SSD interface transition from PCIe® 4.0 to 5.0 is upon us – and KIOXIA is forging the path. We’ve had quite a season! After delivering the industry’s first1 EDSFF E3.S SSD with PCIe 5.0 technology last Fall (CD7 Series) and following that up this past Spring with our 2nd generation PCIe 5.0 SSD for enterprise and data center applications (CD8 Series), Summer brought with it perhaps the most impressive news of all when we launched the all-new Enterprise-class CM7 Series NVMe® SSD.
CM7 was designed from the ground up to meet the demands of enterprise and data center PCIe 5.0 system providers. Capable of delivering 2.5 million random read IOPS, CM7 can also nearly saturate the PCIe 5.0 interface at 14 Gigabytes/s read throughput. When demonstrated at the recent Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, CM7 generated quite the buzz taking home the show’s ‘Best of Show’ in the ‘Most Innovative Memory Technology’ category.
CM7 was not only recognized for its outstanding performance, but for also offering both 2.5”2 and E3.S form factors. Along with PCIe 5.0 connectivity and NVMe 2.0 standard compliance, KIOXIA is delivering one of the broadest SSD lineups that aligns to current and next-generation enterprise and datacenter demand.

IOPS: Input Output Per Second (or the number of I/O operations per second)
Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
Definition of capacity: KIOXIA Corporation defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1Gb = 2^30 bits = 1,073,741,824 bits, 1GB = 2^30 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 2^40 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
