MSI unveils its fastest PCIe 5.0 SSD yet

MSI has recently announced its new PCIe 5.0 M.2 SSD. Available with 1TB, 2TB, or 4TB of storage, the upcoming Spatium M580 Frozr can almost use the entirety of its PCIe 5.0 x4 bus, capable of reading data at up to 14.6 GB/s.

Powered by the Phison E26 PCIe Gen 5 controller and 232-layer 3D NAND memory, this SSD offers blazing-fast read speeds of up to 14.6 GB/s and write speeds of up to 12.7 GB/s. This exceptional performance is achieved thanks to a DRAM cache buffer and an SLC cache, which provide lightning-fast data access and reduced latency for gaming, content production, and professional applications. Additionally, the M580 Frozr is equipped with LPDC ECC and E2E Data Protection, which ensure data integrity and dependability.

The Spatium M580 Frozr also features a passive heatsink cooler pre-installed on the SSD. The cooler comes with three heatpipes, known as Core pipes, and a tower of aluminium fins that maximise surface area. This heatsink maintains maximum storage throughput even under intense workloads, lowering operating temperatures by up to 20 degrees Celsius.

MSI also offers a software solution with system status monitoring and data backup embedded into the MSI Centre. The MSI Centre provides complete information on the SSD's status, such as drive health, usage capacity, and current operating temperature. Moreover, MSI has partnered with Actiphy for easy data back-ups.

KitGuru says: If you're looking for a super fast PCIe 5.0 M.2 SSD without active cooling, the Spatium M580 Frozr might be the right choice for you.
