The KIOXIA CM7 comes in two different models: the CM7-V, which is designed for mixed-used applications; and the CM7-R, which is meant for more read-intensive use cases. That said, the biggest differences between the two versions are their endurance and available capacity models. The CM7-R features a drive writes per day (DWPD) rating of 3 with available capacity models of 1.6TB, 3.2TB, 6.4TB and 12.8TB. The CM7-R features a DWPD rating of 1 while offering a higher capacity range: 1.92TB, 3.84TB, 7.68TB, 15.36TB, and 30.7TB.

For performance, KIOIXA indicates that the CM7 Series pushes the PCIe 5.0 interface nearly to its limit, quoting up to 14GB/s for read throughput. The CM7 Series is also designed with data integrity protection in mind by offering a range of security and availability features; this includes Flash Die Failure Protection to maintain full reliability during die failures, and TCG-Opal SED hardware encryption technology to secure stored data.

KIOXIA indicates the following highlights for the new CM7 line of enterprise PCIe Gen5 SSDs:

  • EDSFF E3.S and 2.5-inch 15mm Z-height form factors designed to the NVMe 2.0 and PCIe 5.0 specifications
  • SFF-TA-1001 supports Universal Backplane Management enabled systems (also known as U.3)
  • Read-intensive (1 DWPD) capacities up to 30.72TB
  • Mixed-use (3 DWPD) capacities up to 12.80TB
  • Dual-port design for high availability applications
  • Flash Die Failure Protection maintains full reliability in case of a die failure
  • Cutting-edge feature support – SR-IOV, CMB, Multistream writes, SGL
  • TCG-Opal SED feature set that is designed to comply with FIPS 140-3
