Parallel to the announcement that mass production of the third generation of V-NAND Its 48D, this time with an unprecedented number of layers and a volume of 256 and 32 GB (ie 1633 GB) respectively - Samsung also decided to demonstrate in practice what the huge potential of this step is and introduced a business drive called PM16a, In an unprecedented volume of XNUMX terabytes.
This is not only a volume that is about 6 terabytes higher than the most advanced helium-based mechanical hard drives that currently exist - but also a 2.5-inch-only drive, which is naturally significantly smaller than the 3.5-inch hard drives. If we compare the PM1633a to hard drives in the same size format - we will come to the conclusion that it offers a volume of eight times (!) From the leading mechanical competitors. very impressive.
Now, it seems that you can officially announce that the only advantage left for the old mechanical drives is the price per gigabyte of volume storage And if you believe the manufacturers, that too will disappear by the end of the decade.
