Kioxia has announced EDSFF format fifth-generation PCIe SSD product, focussing on holding PCIe 4 speed but cutting the lane count in two.
Kioxia’s announcement quoted Greg Wong, founder and principal analyst at Forward Insights, saying: “The EDSFF E3 form factor is set to redefine the way enterprise servers and storage are designed. We expect the market to transition to EDSFF starting in 2022, with the introduction of PCIe 5.0 based systems.”
