Computex 2015: Silicon Motion Shows SM2260 PCIe Gen 3 SSD Controller
In addition to their SATA solutions, Silicon Motion offered for the first time a sneak peek at their upcoming PCIe Gen 3 solution, the SM2260. The drive is expected to support all the latest MLC and TLC NAND and performance is rated up to 2,200 MB/s sequential reads and 1,100 MB/s sequential writes. Random read/write performance will top out at 200K/125K IOPS respectively.
Not much additional information was shared at this time, but I was told that this isn’t a product that will likely begin shipping until next year. Expect more information on the SM2260 during the FMS timeframe (~August).
