When NVMe SSDs started to enter the market, Samsung quickly became dominant in the high-performance section of the SSD market, leveraging their 3D V-NAND technology to offer higher performance levels than their competition.

Realtek has revealed their new RTS5762 NVMe 1.3 SSD controller, featuring support for 3D TLC and 3D QLC memory types over eight flash channels to deliver speeds of up to 3500MB/s and 3000MB/s in sequential reads and writes. To put this into context, Samsung's latest 970 Pro offers up to 3500MB/s sequential reads and 2700MB/s sequential writes. 

In Realtek's demonstration, the company used 64-layer Toshiba BICS3 £D TLC memory, showcasing impressive performance numbers that could potentially allow 3rd party SSD manufacturers to surpass Samsung's high-end offerings. 

Sadly, Realtek did not go into great detail when discussing their SSD controller, though it is said to be using custom processing cores and feature LDPC-based ECC support.

Realtek's RTS5762 NVMe controllers offer the industry the ability to create higher-performance NVMe SSDs that can take 3rd party manufacturers into the ultra-high-end of the marker, offering the potential for a full-on market upheaval. Samsung may not remain the king of the NVMe SSD market for long.
