Seagate FireCudaOverview:

Dominate With Ferocious Speed

Seagate® FireCuda® 520 SSD with PCIe® Gen4 x4 interface is our fastest solid state drive-nearly 45% faster sequential reads/writes than the previous generation. It provides plug-and-play compatibility with all PCIe 4.0 motherboards, and delivers an extreme boost in performance with the latest 3D TLC NAND technology. Upgrading to the FireCuda 520 unlocks Gen4 speed and supplies up to 9x faster sequential reads than SATA SSDs.

Key Advantages

  • Leverage sequential read/write performance up to 5000/4400MB/s, and random read/write up to 760K/700K IOPS.
  • Take advantage of up to 45% more speed than Gen3 M.2 NVMe™ and up to 9x faster sequential reads than SATA SSDs.
  • Utilize an E16 controller that is fully aligned with AMD X570 chipset motherboards and able to reach up to 5GB/s reads/4.4GB/s writes.
  • Easily upgrade to a drive that's compatible with Gen4 motherboards and fully backwards compatible with all PCIe 3.0 platforms.
