Last up on display was the 480GB PCIe SSD. There was only one model on display that happened to be installed in one of Zotac’s gaming rigs, so pictures are limited. We were told that the PCIe SSD is controlled by an unknown Phison controller and also features Toshiba MLC NAND. It was listed that this PCIe is capable of sequential read speeds of up to 2.5 GB/s and write speeds of up to 1,200 MB/s. Pricing was not available for the PCIe SSD, as this was at the end prototype stages, but we can expect this to hit the market in late January or early February.
