How does 3,000MB/s grab ya? :)




From the press release (highlights by me): 


SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced that it has developed the industry's first 2.5-inch (SFF-8639) NVM Express* (NVMe) PCIe solid state drive (SSD), to open up the high-end enterprise storage market.


The newly developed high-speed 1.6TB NVMe SSD provides a sequential read speed at 3,000MB/s, which allows it to process 500GB (gigabytes) of data (equivalent to 100 Full HD movies 5GB in length) in less than 3 minutes. When compared to other products with similar specifications, this new SSD is 14 times faster than a high-end enterprise HDD for server use, and six times faster than Samsung's former high-end enterprise SSD storage.


The XS1715's random read performance reaches up to 740,000 IOPS (Input Output Operations Per Second), which is more than 10 times as fast as existing high-end SSD storage options.


The new NVMe SSD XS1715 comes in 400GB, 800GB and 1.6TB (terabytes) versions. It can also be found on the NVMe Integrators List (IL)**, which makes it an easy-to-manage and highly reliable solution for data center and server storage customers. System performance can be improved dramatically by upgrading to the NVMe SSD XS1715 from a 2.5-inch HDD or a 2.5-inch SATA SSD.


Over the next several years, Samsung expects to continue to develop a variety of NVMe SSD products with increasingly high performance levels.


Now, how to run a PCI/e cable to the drive bay in my laptop? :)

And in ten years that will be the norm for everyone and seem slow for the high end market. Yikes!

Good for Sammy! 


A month or so ago, they announced similar jumps in technology for transmission, i.e., staggering internet speeds. 


I'm a believer. I'll believe it when I get it at home....

I didn't see anything about life expectancy though.  SSD drives have a limit on read/writes and become trash, not even a good paperweight, after X amount.

Not trash, just read-only. And that's after up to 100,000 read/write cycles.

No, not even read only.  We've done extensive testing of SSD drives here.  After 100,000 cycles they become total trash.
