Sales of the Samsung 970 PRO and 970 EVO M.2 NVMe SSDs are due to begin tomorrow (May 7), and it appears that Samsung may be making a last-minute adjustment to their suggested retail prices. An attentive reader has pointed out that two different sections of Samsung’s web site are showing product listings for the[…]
Micron yet has to formally introduce its 3rd generation 96-layer 3D TLC NAND flash. But as we’ve spotted on the Computex showfloor, SSDs based on the new type of memory are already being demonstrated by two developers of SSD controllers — Maxio Technology and Silicon Motion. Intensified competition on the storage market is calling for NAND[…]
During Intel’s keynote at Computex 2018, Intel Client Computing Group manager Gregory Bryant offered a brief preview of the upcoming M.2 version of the Optane SSD 905P high-end NVMe SSD. Intel’s Optane SSD lineup has been split between the high-performance, high-power drives in 2.5″ U.2 and PCIe add-in card form factors, and the much lower-performance M.2 drives[…]
The storage industry is getting exciting again. In order to increase capacity of NAND SSDs, there are two different routes being taken: either increase the number of bits per cell from 3bpc (TLC) to 4bpc (QLC) for a 33% increase, or increase the number of TLC layers per chip from 64 layers to 96 layers for[…]
It’s hard to believe that just weeks after Samsung released its Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, we’re already talking about the Galaxy S10. But such is the technology world we live in. In truth, the Galaxy S10 and, presumably, the S10+ promise to be the most important Samsung releases in years, marking the tenth anniversary of[…]
The internet spent the better part of last year trying to work out if Apple would pull off a magic trick and release the first phone with a fingerprint sensor embedded into the display. When the iPhone X was officially unveiled last October, there was no fingerprint sensor in sight, and largely people have been[…]
It has been quite some time that Samsung has launched a new version of the Galaxy Note. The last mobile in Note series was the Galaxy Note 9. However, reports now suggest that the latest smartphone in the Note series could be launched soon which will be equipped with an under-display fingerprint sensor and a 3D[…]
On May 21, Micron had their annual analyst and investor conference. Micron is firing on all cylinders. The conference has reinvigorated interest in the stock. Unfortunately, while many expected more information about 3D XPoint technology, Micron remains hush-hush about it. In this article we are going to talk about Machine Learning, what it means, and what[…]
Synopsys announced that it has collaborated with Toshiba Memory Corporation to accelerate the verification of Toshiba Memory Corporation’s BiCS FLASH vertically stacked three-dimensional (3D) flash memory. By working closely with Toshiba Memory Corporation, Synopsys introduced innovative simulation algorithms in its FineSim Pro FastSPICE tool to address the increased design complexity of 3D NAND Flash memory.[…]
OWC this week began to ship its ThunderBlade external SSDs with a Thunderbolt 3 interface. The new DAS can deliver up to 2800 MB/s read speeds, which is beyond what even USB 3.1 Gen 2 can offer and is designed to play into the bandwidth advantages of TB3. Meanwhile, two ThunderBlades can be run in[…]
