Higher-efficiency PCIe 4. SSDs are soaring previous thirty TB, and spinning really hard drives are hitting 20 TB for a more affordable different to cope with the escalating advancement of details as 2020 attracts to a shut.
Chip brands also ongoing to drive the envelope with denser 3D NAND flash that can support buyers reduce the cost for each bit and decrease their storage footprints. Micron unveiled its 176-layer 3D NAND in November at the Flash Memory Summit, although it disclosed no timeline for availability. In December, SK Hynix declared that it provided controller firms with samples of its 176-layer, 512 Gigabit triple-stage mobile (TLC) flash, which it calls “4D NAND.”
At year’s close, Intel introduced PCIe 4.-dependent D5-P5316 SSDs crafted with its 144-layer quad-stage-mobile (QLC) 3D NAND that can store 4 bits for each mobile. The D5-P5316 is because of in the 1st half of 2021 at capacities up
