Samsung outs first 1TB capacity mSATA SSD

Samsung has unveiled the very first mSATA SSD in the industry with 1TB of storage capacity.  The SSD is the latest addition to the 840 EVO family that launched in July with 120GB, 250GB, and 500GB storage capacities.
 
The 1TB mSATA SSD uses Samsung 128Gb NAND flash memory manufactured on a 10nm class process technology. Four flash memory packages are used to achieve 1TB of storage capacity.

 
Samsung says that the 1TB mSATA SSD is 3.85mm thick and weighs just 8.5 grams. That makes the new mSATA SSD 40% thinner than a traditional HDD and one twelfth as heavy.
 
The 1TB SSD promises 98,000 random read IOPS and 90,000 random write IOPS. Samsung also promises sequential read and write speed of 540 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 520 MB/s respectively.
 
The new Samsung drive will be available this month with launch date and time depending on region. Pricing isn’t announced for the SSD, but given the capacity and performance offered this definitely will not be a cheap option.

Great specs and the pricing is not out of line with 2.5 inch standards at 128 and 256gb.

Now noticing there is no price listed above... Sigh Dailytech.

It's $500.

Thanks. This drive would probably be $50k 5 years ago.

Yup, even more recently prices werent linear... 128gb = $100 256Gb = $200 512gb = $800

Pricing a 1tb mSATA drive with good specs at $500 is a massively good price.

A massively good price that will prevent me from buying it.

Personally I just need one big drive for my HTPC DVR and I'm fine with that being a standard HD. My feeling is that all your computing devices should come with SSD's and if you have lots of data do a NAS with standard HD's.

Even your reference doesn't show a price, nobody does because it hasn't been announced yet, and it is definitely not $500. We'll have to wait and see what their pricing will be.

The very first line of text - "1.8-inch mSATA drives uses 10nm manufacturing process and costs $500."

odd place for that line of text. Sorry, I missed that. However, they can't know that because Samsung hasn't announced the pricing for that drive yet.

What am I missing? How is this announced 1TB drive
differ from the Samsung SSD listed here?
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-EVO-Seri...

Sells there for just over 500 bucks.

Because this is mSATA, plugs into a much smaller port than a regular 2.5" drive which you linked to and takes up MUCH less space so that you can either A) Get a fast drive added onto your laptop/desktop without taking much space or B) Completely remove "traditional" drives and be able to build a thinner computer.

If you've ever seen a wireless card in a laptop, it plugs into basically an identical port.

You are comparing two different products here. The link you have refer to is SATA SSD. The new samsung is mSATA. They are totally different. mSATA are more expensive than the 2.5 SSD HD.

This shows the size difference (mSATA is on the right).

At the bottom of your link :

Not sure where the writer got 500 from...

I dunno, the first line says $500. I am wondering if it was there, just not supposed to be officially released yet, or if it was just an error. VR-Zone isnt known for bad info, they have been around forever and have always been very straight.

Samsung has a lot of good quality hard drive, I liked it, but Toshiba Hard Drives is good. What do you think?


RE: Nice!

So I recommend that Toshiba Hard Drives: http://www.highding.com/65-toshiba-hard-disk-drive...


What about the dark side?

Is this still TLC, like the rest of the EVO line? If so, how many write cycles can we expect at 10nm? (I know, I'll have to wait for reviews for that.)

Do you people not actually read the articles or links? Yes, it is TLC...

I apologize, it's not in this article, it was Retro who linked showing it was TLC.

Typical use? This drive will last about 35 years give or take.

One TB with 4 nand chips...that's some serious cramming. Must be multiple 128Gbit packages on each die. Heh....those are the benefits when you own the fab eh?




RE: wow...
By esteinbr on 12/9/2013 11:33:02 AM , Rating: 2
some quick calculations show that it would be 16 die stacked per package to hit 1tb with 4 chips.


Fast as well...

Just read that these monsters will hit 1GB/s with the RAPID technology as well.
