CES 2016 has brought us many innovations in the field of home electronics and gadgets, but it has not been lacking in very interesting lines in the field of hardware, such as the ambitious announcement by Mushkin to provide us with high-volume drives of 4 terabytes, Up to 500.

The company was based on a recent version of Silicon Motion's popular SM2246EN controller (which proved to be a good alternative to drives like Crucial's BX100), which now offers chip support In a three-dimensional structure and in maximum double volumes of up to 2 terabytes, to display larger versions of its existing drives.

Silicon Motion's low-cost controllers are having a good success in the SSD market, which is only expected to improve now with support for more volumes and more chips

So far there has been no significant innovation, but the company has also reported on their plan to integrate a pair of printed circuits on which 2 terabyte drives are based in a single package with a component that will link them to an effective 4 terabyte volume and at a price that they claim will be 500 Which is actually cheaper than the one we currently find for 2 terabyte drives.

Such a pair of PCBs can mount an 2.5 SSD drive (probably at a height of 9.5 millimeters, compared to an 7 millimeter standard)

Mushkin pre-declares that such a non-standard combination of two drives Will deliver significantly reduced performance (ostensibly in the range of about 10,000IOPS), but at a price level that is 2 cheaper than the most attractive ones we know today - it is very likely that a large proportion of consumers who are interested in drives As a replacement for large-capacity hard drives, will be very excited about this future product. Will we really see the world of Descending to the level of 12.5 cents per gigabyte of volume In 2016? We hold our fingers.

Will we see more manufacturers implementing the idea that Mushkin is talking about soon?
