Samsung has been the last to join in fashion PCI-Express 4.0, and as expected, it does so through the big door, and since the existence of SATA III @ 6.0 Gbps SSDs, the company has always been at the forefront, not only in performance, but in durability, and now the company wants to follow the path with its high performance SSDs Samsung PM1733 Y Samsung PM1735, the company's first PCI-Express 4.0 SSD.
The Samsung PM1733 has a problem, will use the 2.5 "interface and needs a U.2 port, which is not popular at all and is found on some high-performance (more expensive) motherboards. This unit will be available in 6 variants with capacities of 0.96TB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB, 7.68TB, 15.36TB and 30.72TB, existing 4 variants in HHHL format (PCIe slot) of 1.92TB, 3.84TB, 7.68TB and 15.36GB.
On the other hand we have the Samsung PM1735, which is essentially the same SSD but designed for another user profile (the other can have 1 or 2 ports thinking of servers), being available in capacities of 0.8TB, 1.6TB, 3.2TB, 6.4TB and 12 , 8TB in the format of 2.5 ", and 1.6TB, 3.2TB, 6.4TB and 12.8TB in the HHHL.
Both units reach sequential speeds of up to 6400 MB / s for reading and up to 3800 MB / s for writing, while the HHHL units will reach 8000/3800 MB / s respectively. When it comes to random reading and writing 4K, it translates into 1,450,000/260,000 IOPS.
Now it's time to expect the company to focus on launching 100% units designed for consumption, and this translates in the popular M.2 port.
