The NAND Flash market has witnessed a slight oversupply in 1Q18. The growth momentum remains weak in 2Q18 although the demand increases, according to DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. It is expected that the slight oversupply in NAND Flash market will remain and the prices will continue to decline. In the 2H18, the overall demand will increase[…]
As more NVMe SSDs arrive, one of the biggest complaints is always the additional cost. Sure, having an SSD is great and we’ve called it the single biggest upgrade you can make to an older PC, but once you move from a hard drive to an SSD, you’ve made the big jump. But NVMe SSDs are[…]
TORONTO — It wasn’t long ago that flash storage was reserved for high-demand data only. Now all-flash array adoption is not only outpacing hybrid arrays, but those with NVMe look to be rapidly hitting the mainstream. Tegile Systems is putting its stake in the ground with what it said is the first unified all-NVMe array on the[…]
XPG SX7000 512GB $154.95 Lowest price per GB of all NVMe drives Faster (usually) than any SATA SSD Slower than almost any other NVMe SSD TLC can bog down a bit in write-heavy scenarios NVMe is mostly the domain of expensive offerings, but things are beginning to change, with multiple companies offering NVMe drives that[…]
Fastest SSD in the world Extremely low latency Incredible endurance Very high price per GB Limited capacities at present Only available as PCIe AIC or U.2 Once you have a good SSD, there are diminishing returns with getting something even faster. For gaming purposes in particular, load times are pretty well minimized with any NVMe[…]
Free up your phone’s limited internal storage by moving apps and other data to an SD card. We explain how. Many cheap Android phones come with a paltry 8GB of storage, and even 16GB isn’t really enough for lots of apps, high-resolution photos and videos, plus a music library. Fortunately, the vast majority of Android phones[…]
Flash-based external direct-attached storage (DAS) devices have evolved rapidly over the last few years. Starting with simple thumb drives that could barely saturate USB 2.0 bandwidth, we now have high-performance external SSDs that take advantage of the USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface to saturate the internal SATA bandwidth. The introduction of PCIe-based SSDs have enabled[…]
TAIPEI — Intel intends to expand its partnership with Beijing-backed Tsinghua Unigroup by providing NAND flash memory chips as soon as this year, according to industry sources. Negotiations are leading toward Tsinghua Unigroup’s storage arm UNIC Memory Technology receiving NAND chip supplies from Intel, turning those chips into various products such as microSD cards and solid-state drives[…]
SAN FRANCISCO — The NAND flash market, which enjoyed one of its best years on record in 2017 thanks to strong demand and tight supply, took a step toward equilibrium between supply and demand in the fourth quarter as yield rates improved, with contract pricing for NAND in PCs, tablets and servers remaining flat or[…]
Last month, Samsung updated their retail SATA SSD lineup with a new generation of controllers and memory. The Samsung 860 PRO arrived on our test bench first and clearly outperformed its predecessor. However, its status as a premium-priced MLC-based SSD means those generational improvements were irrelevant to most consumers. The new Samsung 860 EVO is the mainstream counterpart with[…]
