    A 16 TB Samsung SSD


    Source



    At the Flash Memory Summit in California, Samsung has unveiled what appears to be the world's largest hard drive—and somewhat surprisingly, it uses NAND flash chips rather than spinning platters. 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 2014.

    I would have no use for an SSD that big, and that expensive. Plus they most likely would not last as long as a regular type hard drive. I just saw a 1TB regular drive on Amazon for 58 bucks, sata6 drive, which makes it fast, was a WD drive. 58 bucks!!! internal.

    This is not even in production yet, in 10 years this will be a small SSD.
