Who would have thought that Gigabyte - who don't manufacture controllers, nor memory - would be the first company to tease a PCIe 4.0-based M.2 SSD. In a blog post on its website that serves as a warm-up for the upcoming Computex, the company says that they'll be announcing the world's first PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD - with speeds up to 5000 MB/s at "low temperatures" - I guess that means that thermal throttling will become much more common with these new SSDs.
 
Any other details are currently unknown; however (and we're just speculating here), we know that Phison was preparing a PCIe 4.0 NVMe controller in the form of the E16. At the time (back in January of 2019), Phison paired their E16 controller with Micron's 96-layer TLC flash, but improvements in controller development as well as changes in the flash memory used could have brought up their - then - performance figures of expected 4.8/4.4 GB/s of read/write throughput on Toshiba's BiCS 4 flash. We'll just have to wait for Computex and see, but oh my - new PCIe 4.0 SSDs, new up-to 16-core CPUs on the 7 nm process, new 7 nm GPUs... Isn't this a great time to be a PC enthusiast?

    It will be interesting to see. Hopefully once this is shown off we see a drop in SSD prices for the fastest drives since they won't seem as impressive.

    Old mechanical drives are going to look like dial-up modem speed vs high-speed broadband at this rate, lol..

    The motherboard and CPU has to support it. AMD RYZEN with the newest chipsets being announced next week should support it I believe.

    Only thing HDD have over an SSD is the size but now days getting a 2TB SSD has came down a lot. For most people 2TB is a lot of storage space and having a second SSD would fill most needs even if it's a slower SATA one. I could see the size of SSD drives catching up with HDD over the next decade and offering far greater speed.

    2TB M.2 NVMe SSD prices have fallen substantially. Having a 2TB SSD for your system drive is plenty of room. Hard disks are fine for seldom played games and media libraries etc.

    2TB is still pretty small for a good sized game library I would want more like 4TB but I am guessing we will see that probably in 2021 being reasonable. By 2025 I wouldn’t be surprised to see 8TB being reasonable priced and by then why would you go HDD?
