FireCuda 530: an M.2 SSD that can write up to 6.9 GB/s!

Seagate has announced a new series of SSDs for gamers. Indeed, the brand offers its FireCuda 530 series, M.2 models with great performance. The capacities are not left out either with a model of 4 TB! There, we are at ease!

FireCuda 530: up to 4 TB and 6.9 GB/s write speed!

Seagate FireCuda 530

This series of SSDs actually includes four models with different capacities. We’ll start small with a 500GB model, then work our way up with 1TB and 2TB versions. The grand finale will involve an SSD with 4TB of storage, which makes us a big capacity!

These models also benefit from a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface and 3D TLC type NAND. Finally, a Phison E18 controller is in charge of orchestrating everything. As a reminder, this controller is also found in the CRAS C from Klevv.

For the blow, are the performances at the rendezvous? We would be tempted to say yes, at least on paper. For example, these FireCudas have high sequential throughputs, with a maximum read rate of 7.3 GB/s and a maximum write rate of 6.9 GB/s. At the lowest, with the 500 GB version, we are running at 7 GB/s read and 3 GB/s write. Finally, the random performance shows 1 million max read/write IOPS.

Prices will not be given as they are :

  • 500 GB: $139.99 without heatsink, $159.99 with heatsink
  • 1 TB: $239.99 without heatsink, $259.99 with heatsink
  • 2 TB: $489.99 without heatsink, $539.99 with heatsink
  • 4Tb: $949.99 without heatsink, $999.99 with heatsink

Finally, we find a 5-year warranty.

This way to the Seagate datasheet !
