Samsung Reveals 15.3TB SSD, PM1633A; World’s Largest
Samsung appears to be all geared up with their new products as they recently revealed the world’s largest SSD (Solid State Drive) PM1633A, that has a capacity of 15.3TB!
The reveal came out of the Flash Memory Summit which is currently being held in Santa Clara, California. In the event, they boasted that the SSD was going to be the largest in the world at this time and also demonstrated a gigantic system packing 48 of these SSDs.
In total that system had a capacity of 768TB which is bound to make you drool and promised to achieve as much as 2,000,000 IOPS.
Individually, this one comes with a 48-layer 3-bit MLC on Samsung’s latest 256Gb (32GB) 3D V-NAND flash memory.
That being said, the size of PM1633A is merely 2.5″ – you can thank the aforementioned for making this possible because it would require 480 chips of these 32GB.
Now that we are done with the largest, how about the fastest? Another product revealed by Samsung was the PM1725 SSD which comes with a capacity of 3.2TB or 6.4TB but manages to achieve 1,000,000 IOPS!
So far that is all we have been told about the PM1633A SSD and PM1725 SSD of Samsung, but we will be sharing more with you as soon as some information surfaces.
