KIOXIA has announced the XG8 Series, the company’s new line of client SSDs designed for next-generation performance and demanding client environments such as high-end notebooks, desktops, gaming systems, workstations, and data center boot applications.  Available in capacities up to 4TB, KIOXIA’s XG8 Series features the PCIe Gen4 specification and BiCS FLASH 3D NAND.

The XG8 series is available in the standard M.2 type 2280 form factor and is highlighted by a range of optional security features that use the latest TCG Pyrite 2.01 and TCG Opal 2.01 standards. In addition, the XG8 Series features end-to-end data path protection for better data integrity and further peace of mind, while support for Power Loss Notification helps protect data against both forced and unexpected shut-downs.

The XG8 Series also supports the NVMe 1.4 feature set and Basic Management Commands over System Management Bus (SMBus), giving users improved thermal management abilities. In addition, sideband signals (PERST#, CLKREQ# and PLN#) are available in both 1.8V and 3.3V (though current client models only support 3.3V), which means support for more platforms.

KIOXIA XG8 Series Availability

The XG8 series comes in capacities of 512GB, 1,024GB, 2,048GB and 4,096GB, and is available now for customer evaluation. A full spec sheet is expected as the drive nears general availability in the next month or two.
