Kioxia America, formerly known as Toshiba Memory America, has unveiled two new lines of solid-state drive (SSDs) that are designed for the enterprise and data center markets. While we've seen some consumer-level SSDs that have been able to achieve breakneck speeds courtesy of the PCIe 4.0 interface, these new Kioxia SSDs are on an elevated plane with respect to performance. First up is the CM6 Series SSD family, which is available in capacities ranging from 800GB up to a mind-boggling 30.72TB. Equally as impressive as the storage capacity of these SSDs are their performance, which is rated at up to 6.9GB/sec for both sequential reads and writes. Random read/write performance checks...

A company called Kioxia (spun out of Toshiba) has developed an interesting technology that could potentially pave a path beyond today's quad-level cell (QLC) NAND flash memory chips, into the next-generation of penta-level cell (PLC) parts. It's a breakthrough of sorts, in that it's the world's first three-dimensional semicircular split-gate flash memory cell structure. The name for this tech is Twin BiCS flash. There's a ton of technobabble in the press announcement, but the short version is, Kioxia developed a novel way of packing smaller cells to increase memory density beyond what is possible with today's QLC NAND flash memory technology. "Twin BiCS flash achieves superior program slope and... Read more...
