Toshiba announced its next-generation BG4 solid state drive all the way back at CES in early January of this year. The diminutive, little Toshiba BG4 isn’t about the latest and greatest in bleeding-edge SSD storage performance or pushing the envelope in terms of throughput. However, it does still represent a significant step forward in regard to power and performance in the smallest of form factors – you’ll see exactly what we mean in a couple of the photos below. The 1TB Toshiba BG4 we will be showing you here is essentially a single-chip solution, cable of multi-gigabyte per second sequential transfers. It’s exactly the kind of device OEMs and ODMs look for when designing... Read more...
Toshiba today rolled out its latest family of NVMe SSDs that will be used by OEMs later this year. The new BG4, as its name implies, is a 4th generation, single-chip ball grid array (BGA) SSD that brings some pretty impressive performance gains over its BG3 predecessor. For starters, the BG4 uses 96-layer 3D BiCS TLC NAND instead of 64-layers, which not only bolsters overall capacities, but also keeps power consumption in check (Toshiba says that overall power consumption has been reduced by 20 percent). And whereas the BG3 uses an NVMe PCIe 3.0 x2 interface, the BG4 instead uses an NVMe PCIe 3.0x4 interface for increased throughput.   So, what does this mean for shipping parts?... Read more...
