PNY Announces Its CS2030 M.2 NVMe SSD with Phison Controller

By Published December 29, 2016 at 5:30 pm

PNY announced their CS2030 line of M.2 NVMe SSDs this week. The CS2030 will be available in two capacities at 240GB and 480GB, and both drives will follow the M.2 2280 form factor.

The new CS2030 drives will utilize a Phison PS5007 controller with MLC NAND Flash memory to provide sequential read speeds of 2,750 MB/s and sequential write speeds of 1,500 MB/s for the 240GB model. The larger CS2030 480GB version will provide sequential read speeds of 2,800 MB/s and sequential write speeds of 1,550 MB/s.

Pricing on the 240GB model will be $180, while the larger 480GB will come in at $330. PNY will offer a 3-year warranty on the CS2030 240GB and 480GB models.

With possible SSD shortages coming in the near future, and the limiting 6Gb/s on SATA III, the M.2 NVMe SSD market is sure to become more competitive in 2017. PNY’s recent announcement of their CS2030 drives comes slightly after Corsair announced their MP500 M.2 NVMe SSD. PNY and Corsair join the M.2 NVMe SSD market and will compete against the likes of Samsung, Intel, Plextor, and Toshiba (OCZ) in short order.
