ADATA has recently confirmed that it will hold a press event known as Dawn of the New Xtreme on January 5th as a part of the CES 2022 Expo. It is the company that owns the XPG gaming brand.
ADATA will likely demonstrate new products, including DDR5 RAM, gaming accessories, and possibly the next-gen laptops. It is clear that the company wants to go toe-to-toe against AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA at CES 2022.
What’s more, ADATA will reveal its latest prototype PCle Gen 5.0 drives, including Project Nighthawk and Project Nightbird. As per the official press release, the forthcoming storage will feature the PCIe Gen5 x 4 interface and NVMe 2.0 protocol. Moreover, the drives will pack up to 8TB of capacity.

As for performance, it might be the fastest option going around with up to 14 GB/s of sequential read bandwidth. However, the company will also release 12GB/s and 10GB/s. The drives feature support for the NVMe 2.0 standard. However, it is important to note that the standard doesn’t carry a lot of changes for client and consumer SSDs. It can be considered as a specs reorganization.
Furthermore, this is not the first time we have seen a leak about next-gen storage options. Kioxia has already acknowledged that it is working on storage up to 14 GB/s. Hence, the latest high-speed storage should deliver 103% faster read and 67% faster write speeds over Gen 4 standard.
