The XG5-P series also utilizes a PCI Express (PCIe) Gen3 x 4 lane and NVM Express™ Revision 1.2.1 interface, and delivers performance of up to 3000 MB/s sequential read and 2200 MB/s sequential write, and up to 320,000 IOPS random read and 265,000 IOPS random write. Its random read/write performance in full access range is approximately 55% better than that of standard XG5 series products. At the same time, low power consumption is maintained at less than 60mW during operation.

The new XG5-P series is housed in a standard M.2 2280 form factor and will be available in two capacities, 1TB and 2TB. By utilizing a 64-layer, 3D flash memory BiCS FLASH 1TB package developed in-house, the 2TB model offers twice the maximum storage capacity of the standard XG5 series on the same 2.23mm, lightweight single-sided M.2 2280 module. By maintaining a single form factor for all capacities across the XG5-P and XG5 product families, Toshiba Memory Corporation makes it easier to design platforms that need flexible storage.

The XG5-P SSDs will also be available in self-encrypting drive (SED) models supporting TCG Opal Version 2.01, contributing to a wide range of applications including workstations, gaming PCs and read-intensive enterprise use.
