Is the GALAX HOF EXTREME 50 the fastest SSD ever made for PC?

With the arrival of the AMD Ryzen 7000, we know that the new AM5 platform will also be released and the X670 chipsets will be the first to arrive. These will support PCIe 5.0 for both the GPU and future NVMe M.2 SSD that they will arrive Among these, we have a new high-end model of GALAXYcalled HOF Extreme 50which will arrive with a Phison E26 controller and promises to have a speed of 12 GB / s.

Every time we see a new generation of PCIe debut on the market, we know that noticeable speed increases are coming. And it is that, as a general rule, the improvement is usually two times compared to the previous generation. So we see that the PCIe 4.0 SSD achieve transfer speeds of about 7,000MB/swhile the PCIe 3.0 top of the range reach around 3,500MB/s. This metric seems to have changed as we have not yet seen PCIe 5.0 SSDs that reach 14,000 MB/s, although the GALAX HOF Extreme 50 is close to meeting it.

GALAX HOF Extreme 50: PCIe 5.0 SSD that reaches 12,000 MB/s

GALAX SSD Controller Phison E26

GALAXY It is a well-known brand for creating graphics cards of NVIDIA of premium range that allow impressive doses of overclocking, the Hall of Fame (HOF). These stand out for offering a desEsports Extrasof White color with golden tones, a system of three fans and a huge sink. Inside, nothing disappoints, as they use PCBs with a large number of phases to be able to squeeze these graphics cards to the fullest with overclock. But they are not only limited to manufacturing high-end graphics, but have also entered the field of monitors, gaming chairs, peripherals, cooling systems Y SSD’s.

Regarding the latter, we have a new addition, as GALAX has announced the HOF Extreme 50, a top-of-the-range PCIe 5.0 SSD. This will use the controller Philson PS5026-E26based on the process 12nm of TSMC with a 3D TLC Flash Memory of 232 layers. Thus, it will reach a speed of up to 12,000MB/s in sequential reading Y 10,000MB/s in sequential write. On the other hand, you will get 1,500K IOPS in 4K random read and 1,250K IOPS in random writing.

It will have active cooling and capacities of up to 4 TB

PCIe 5.0 SSD Active Cooling

In addition to performance data, GALAX has announced that this HOF Extreme 50 will employ a new active cooling system. We do not know its design, since we do not have our own images of the SSD nor do we have details of it on the GALAX website. Everything remains in a declaration that the PCIe Gen 5 SSDs will generate significantly more heat than the current ones. Considering that the temperatures of these already reach quite high figures, we would not be surprised to see systems with heatpipes or fans in the future.

These future SSD HOF EXTREME 50, can be purchased with or without the cooling system active, so we will save money if we have a motherboard with competent M.2 heatsinks. Regarding the price of this SSD or when it will be available, we do not know anything, since we only know its specifications but not its final design. To say this, that although PCIe 5.0 does not result in a leap in performance for the average user, technologies such as Microsoft Direct Storage Y AMD Smart Access Storage (SAS) would take advantage of this speed to speed up game loading.

GALAX SSD loses to Esports ExtrasBYTE AORUS Gen5 10000 in speed

Although GALAX promises a lot with this high-end SSD, the 12,000 MB/s and 10,000 MB/s read and write have not managed to beat a high-end SSD. Esports ExtrasBYTE. This would be the AORUS Gen5 10000, which also uses the Phison PS5026-E26 controller. In this case, the award Fastest PCIe 5.0 SSD Madethis AORUS Gen5 takes it, because it reaches the 12,454MB/s read Y 10,074MB/s writeaccording to CrystalDiskMark.

Best of all, to achieve these speeds, it hasn’t used any kind of huge heatsink, let alone active cooling. And it is that, its cooling system is a graphene sheetcontradicting the fact that you have to invest in better cooling to take advantage of PCIe 5.0 SSDs.
