Seagate recently announced the launch of a new solid-state product Coldplay FireCuda 520N SSD.
In particular, this new product uses the size of M.2 2230, which is obviously mainly in the game handset market, which can be used to quickly fill space for devices such as ROG Ally and Steam Deck, as well as for Microsoft Surface series of lightweight notebooks.
From the name of the product, it should be a continuation of Seagate's use of the first PCIe 4.0x4 specification FireCuda 520SSD.
The FireCuda 520N SSD has optional 1TB and 2TB capacity, uses PCIe 4.0x4 interface, supports NVMe 1.4 standard specification, and has a maximum sequential read speed of 5000 MB/s and 4750 MB/s.
Although the size becomes smaller, it is consistent with the performance of the standard M.2 2280 FireCuda 2280 SSD.
Seagate did not give a price, but it should be similar to the price strategy of Western Digital SN770M.
For reference, Western Digital SN770M sells for $74.99 for the 500GB version, $109.99 for the 1TB version and $219.99 for the 2TB version.
Seagate did not give a specific time for the launch date.
