The NVMe 2.0 standard has come to help in case HDD drivers, who are slowly starting to break their shell when it comes to speed, get into a bottleneck over the SATA 3 connection.
One of the surprise announcements near the end of Computex 2021 was related to the NVMe standard. The NVMe 2.0 standard also comes with significant connectivity support for hard drive drives.
The NVMe standard, which allows flash drives to use their full potential, is now available to manufacturers with a new version. NVMe 2.0 also supports hard drive drives connected via PCIe.
In terms of data transfer speeds, the HDD front was well behind, but the Seagate Mach.2 driver reached speeds of 524MB/s, heralding a new era. Naturally, something was needed that would go beyond the SATA 3.0 standard.
The NVMe 2.0 standard also supports Zoned Namespaces (ZNS) technology. Samsung’s first ZNS SSD technology can store data in disk space based on the type of use, offering longer life.
NVMe Endurance Group Management provides better control of media content, while the NVMe Key-Value Command Set improves efficiency by using keys instead of logical block addresses when writing to the SSD domain name. NVMe 2.0 will also be compatible with previous architectures.
