Phison Electronics Corp., a leading NAND flash controller, and storage solutions provider has released the latest PCIe Gen5 X Series Enterprise SSDs. These new SSDs are designed for enterprise use, using the E26 Controller and redrivers.

The X Series Enterprise SSDs, according to Phison, provides twice the performance per watt as the previous generation (X1). Phison is also introducing the PS7201 Retimer, designed to improve performance and data integrity in enterprise and automotive applications, and the E26 controller. There are multiple SSD in Tier S, providing ultra performance in our SSD Tier List.

These new SSDs are being showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and are expected to bring a new level of performance to the gaming industry. Phison’s proprietary I/O+ Technology is also on display at CES, as the company seeks to influence the evolution of gaming experiences.

The X Series Enterprise SSDs are expected to be used in various other applications, including enterprise storage and automotive systems, and gaming.

Phison has a strong history in the SSD market, having previously released the PS7101, the world’s first PCI-SIG Association-certified PCIe 5.0 Redriver. The PS7201 Retimer, the company’s most recent release, builds on this success by addressing enterprise and automotive applications’ performance and data integrity issues.

Overall, Phison’s new X Series Enterprise SSDs with PCIe Gen5 E26 Controller and redrivers are poised to revolutionize system-level performance and usher in a new era of SSD innovation.

“Phison is ecstatic to be ringing in the new year by showcasing our product milestones for the industry, our partners, and enterprise customers because we are committed and dedicated to engineering next-generation technologies through ecosystem excellence,” said Michael Wu, GM & President of Phison Technology Inc. (USA). “As a proven category leader, Phison’s E26 with I/O+ Technology, latest Enterprise PCIe Gen5 X Series, signal enhancing Redriver and Retimer are product breakthroughs that are a testament to our engineering success.”

Phison’s CES 2023 Product Lineup Includes:

  • E26 with I/O+ Technology is Phison’s first Gen5 SSD solution, designed to double the bandwidth and improve latency by 30% compared to PCIe Gen4
  • Enterprise PCIe Gen5 X Series SSD controllers offer double the performance of PCIe Gen4, with the X2 controller reaching 14GB/s sequential and 3.2 million IOPS random performance.
  • PS7201 Retimer improves signal transmission over long PCIe Gen5 cable lengths, with 16 lanes and low latency
  • PS7101 Redriver solves signal loss issues on motherboards at PCIe Gen5 speeds, with PCI-SIG Association certification and widespread adoption from leading motherboard manufacturers
