PNY unveils new CS2030 series NVMe SSDs

by on28 December 2016


Coming in M.2 form-factor

PNY has unveiled its new consumer-oriented CS2030 series of NVMe SSDs, coming in capacities of up to 480GB and sequential performance of up to 2750MB/s.

According to provided details, the new PNY CS2030 SSDs will use Phison's PS5007 controller paired up with MLC NAND flash. As noted, the PNY SC2030 SSD series comes in M.2 2280 form-factor and uses PCI-Express 3.0 x4 interface with NVMe protocol.

Surprisingly, the PNY CS2030 series will only be available in 240GB and 480GB capacities, both offering a sequential performance of up to 2750MB/s for read and up to 1500MB/s for write with a 4K random performance of up to 210,000 IOPS for read and up to 215,000 IOPS for write.

The only drawback that it will be using a blue PCB, which might be a problem for those that like to match the color scheme of their system, since we haven't seen many blue PCB motherboards lately. At least, unless those M.2 SSD heatsinks become widely available on motherboards.

The PNY CS2030 series SSDs are backed by a three year warranty and come with a suggested retail price of US $179.99 for the 240GB version and US $329.99 for the 480GB one.
