Those are the speeds they market to everyone. What we really need is an improvement in random IO as its mostly flat for years. In fact none of the PCIe 4.0 drives improved random IO some actually are worse.So the current Samsung SSD 980 PRO PCIe 4.0 delivers 7,000 MB/s read speed and 5,100 MB/s write speed. How fast do people think the upcoming 990 PCIe 4.0 will be? FYI the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus PCIe 4.0 2TB SSD does 7,100 MB/s read and 6,600 MB/s write, and the upcoming 4TB model could be even faster.
