More PCIe Gen5 NVMe solid-state drives are coming out this week. After CORSAIR announced the CORSAIR MP700 PRO PCIe Gen5 Series SSDs that boasts performance of up to 12,400 MB/s read and 11,800 MB/s write, PNY introduces the CS3150 PCIe Gen5 SSD that also comes with an aggressive thermal solution with its dual-fan air cooler and speeds of up to 12,000 MB/s read and 11,000 MB/s write. While the CORSAIR MP700 PRO appears to be the superior SSD on paper, the PNY CS3150 uses a shorter air cooler making it less likely to encounter obstructions upon application. Nevertheless, PCIe Gen5 SSDs appear to be the new standard in SSDs available in the market today.

Press release
PNY announced the addition of the CS3150 M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen5 x4 SSD with integrated heatsinks to its lineup of solid-state drives. The PNY CS3150 is at the forefront of cutting-edge storage, leveraging the NVMe PCIe Gen5 x4 interface to deliver unrivaled data transfer speeds. With sequential read/write speeds up to 12,000 MB/s and 11,000 MB/s2 respectively, this breakthrough technology catapults computing experiences to unprecedented levels, making it an ideal choice for professionals, enthusiasts, and anyone seeking the pinnacle of storage performance.

Innovative Heatsink
The PNY CS3150 at launch will be available in 1TB and 2TB densities and will come integrated with one of three different dual-fan heatsinks – Black, White, or Black-RGB. These revolutionary heatsinks have an innovative design with not one but two ultra-quiet fans to maximize heat dissipation generated by highly intensive applications, prolonged workloads, and lightning-fast transfer speeds.

Enhanced Gameplay with XLR8 Gaming
PNY’s CS3150 takes full advantage of Microsoft DirectStorage, a revolutionary feature that was introduced in Windows 11 that improves both the speed at which games load and the quality of their images. Combining the PNY XLR8 Gaming CS3150 with Black RGB Heatsink with PNY XLR8 Gaming DDR5 DRAM and a high-performance graphics card such as PNY GeForce RTX 4080 16GB XLR8 Gaming VERTO EPIC-X RGB Triple Fan will minimize load times, ensuring you spend more time creating or gaming5. Additionally, PNY's VelocityX software is able to synchronize the RGB lights on all three devices, as well as, overclock all NVIDIA graphics cards in PNY’s catalog.
