Samsung has managed to score a first in the tech industry with a 512GB SSD solution in a one-chip package #hardwaremagic
Laptop manufacturers can rejoice over the extremely tiny SSD created by Samsung – it will definitely match any Ultrabook, being just 1.5mm thick. PM971 holds 512GB of memory on a chip that measures less than a U.S. postage stamp: 20 x 16mm. The solution reaches 1,500MB/s reads and 900MB/s writes thanks to Samsung’s TurboWrite tech.
At these measurements, it’s obvious that the chip can be stuck directly to a motherboard, instead of having to change to fit industry requirements. Wicked, right?
There are also 128GB and 256GB versions, all of them becoming available this June.
