Seagate rolls out FireCuda 530 PCIe 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSD at SG21 – Fudzilla

Phison controller and Micron’s 3D TLC NAND
During SG1, Seagate has unveiled its latest flagship SSD, the FireCuda PCIe 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSD, reaching a sequential performance of up to 7,300/6,900 MB/s, thanks to Phison controller and 176L 3D TLC NAND.
The Seagate FireCuda 530 PCIe 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSD will be available in 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities, all featuring Phison’s PS5018-E18 controller with PCIe 4.0 x4 interface and Micron’s 176L 3D TLC NAND. The 500GB and 1TB versions are based on single-sided M.2-2280 form-factor, while the 2TB and 4TB versions are double-sided M.2-2280 SSDs.
The lineup does not share the same specifications, but the 2TB and 4TB versions peak at 7,300MB/s and 6,900MB/s for read and write sequential performance. These two have random read and write performance of 1M IOPS for both read and write.
The slowest of the bunch, the 500GB version, peaks at 7,000MB/s and 3,000MB/s for read and write sequential performance, with random 4K read and write performance of 400K and 700K IOPS. The 1TB version is significantly faster, peaking at 7,300MB/s read and 6,000MB/s write sequential performance, with random 4K performance of 800K IOPS for read and 1M IOPS for write.
You can check out the full specifications in the table below.
The entire lineup supports SLC caching, TCG OPAL encryption, TRIM, and S.M.A.R.T. support, 5-year warranty with 3-year Rescue Data Recovery Services, and have write endurance of 0.7 DWPD, or 640 TB for 500GB, 1275TB for 1TB, 2550TB for 2TB, and 5100TB for 4TB version.
The entire lineup is already available over at Amazon.com and available with or without the heatsink. The price is set at $169.99 for the 500GB version, $274.99 for the 1TB version, $569.99 for the 2TB version, and $1,049.99 for the 4TB version.
Interestingly enough, the Firecuda 530 with the heatsink is actually cheaper than the one without the heatsink, priced at $999.99 for the 4TB version, $514.99 for the 2TB one, and $254.99 for the 1TB version. The 500GB one with the heatsink is currently not available.
