Samsung 16 TB SSD
Another Samsung product that has impressed the tech mavens is Samsung 16 TB SSD. There is no denying the fact that this small SSD hard drive can pack an impressive amount of data.Â Samsung broke all records of squeezing in a huge amount of storage in one unit. Arstechnica in a report says, “The rather boringly named PM1633a, which is being targeted at the enterprise market, manages to cram almost 16 terabytes into a 2.5-inch SSD package. By comparison, the largest conventional hard drives made by Seagate and Western Digital currently max out at 8 or 10TB…The secret sauce behind Samsung’s 16TB SSD is the company’s new 256Gbit (32GB) NAND flash die; twice the capacity of 128Gbit NAND dies that were commercialised by various chip makers last year. To reach such an astonishing density, Samsung has managed to cram 48 layers of 3-bits-per-cell (TLC) 3D V-NAND into a single die. This is up from 24 layers in 2013, and then 36 layers in 2014â€.
