Right, drives SSD Externally with volumes up to 2 terabytes are very compact - but it turns out that even smaller configurations can be found to transmit information from place to place, and in particularly impressive volumes
USB-based storage drives are not as popular as they used to be, now in the era of smartphones and the availability of online cloud storage on any platform and only a few touches away - but based on the same flash chips that can be found on the USB-SSD It seems that the field continues to develop in very interesting and efficient directions, in a situation where it is necessary to store and transfer a lot of information quickly from place to place.
Western Digital, which became the owner of the original "inventor" Sandisk, introduced a new prototype that purports to break the data density peaks known to us from theNAND - with a volume of 4 terabyte in a modest product that can easily enter any pocket and even get lost in the bag, about two years after rival Kingston introduced a drive USB Mobile In peak volume of 2 terabytes. Someone said Moore's Law and did not get it?
The USB driveUSB Fresh based on author USB Type-C is more modern and larger than mostUSB Which are now sold in stores, naturally, when it seems that the reduced physical connector and the increased weight of the product forced the sandisk Change access and provide a small cable that is rolled in the model body to avoid applying direct pressure to the connector on the laptop or stationary body.
There are those who will see the interesting product drive SSD Exterior design is a little more than usual and not a drive USB Mobile "True", but it does not really change the technological achievement beneath the surface - to compress entire 4 terabytes into such a compact configuration is certainly not taken for granted,QLC Which are apparently the basis for this.
It is estimated that the new generation BiCS chips, with 96 layers in QLC configuration and an effective volume of 1.33 terabytes per layer, are the ones used by Western Digital and Sandisk - when in this case, too, chip (One on each side of the printed circle inside?) To reach the overall data successfully.
We do not know when this USB drive will be officially sold, what its performance will be and especially what the price of this technological pleasure will be - but we hope that its existence will spur the creation of more drives SSD Of 4 terabyte in the market, both internally and in a "classic" portable external configuration.
