We here at HotHardware are suckers for fast SSDs, and the fine folks at Samsung decided to light up Dell World 2015 with two storage products that are sure to knock your socks off. We’ve reported on the PM1725 before, which is a half-height, half-length (HHHL) NVMe SSD that shows no mercy when it comes to transfer speeds. The PM1725 promises sequential writes of 1,800MB/s, while sequential reads come in at a mind-numbing 5,500MB/s. It’s definitely easy to make claims of such high performance parameters in a press release, but we were pleased to see Samsung’s live demo which showed the PM1725 barely breaking a sweat while it delivered 5,689.03MB/s reads in Iometer within Windows Server 2012 R2....

NAND flash technology is advancing at a rapid clip, and that’s resulting in solid state drives (SSDs) that are faster, more capacious and cheaper (per GB). Look no further than Samsung’s announcement this week of its latest Vertical NAND (V-NAND) chips that allows for the ultra fast PM1725 NVMe SSD capable of delivering mind-blowing sequential read speeds of up to 5,500 megabytes per second. But if you think those read speeds are impressive, Samsung just made our jaws drop with the announcement of an incredible advancement on the storage density front. The company’s new PM1633a SSD manages to pack 16TB (the actually formatted capacity is 15.36TB) into a 2.5-inch-ish form-factor. You read that... Read more...
