Samsung recently provided some details on its PM1743 PCIe Gen 5 E3.S 1T EDSFF SSD, which will be released in Q2 2022. It belongs to the corporate segment. The drive is equipped with a PCIe 5.0 x4 interface, which can provide a theoretical maximum speed of 15.7GB / s.
The drive will use V6 TLC NAND flash memory. The resource is declared as a possibility of one complete rewriting per day during the warranty period. In this respect, the new product will be similar to the currently available PM9A3 model, equipped with a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface. However, if the PM9A3 drive is made in the E1.S frame size, then the E3.S 1T frame size of single width (111.5 × 31.5 mm) is selected for the PM1743, which is in demand in servers. The TDP is expected to be 20-25W. More details should appear closer to release.
