updated 09:47 pm EDT, Tue August 13, 2013

New drive comes in 480GB, 960GB capacities

At the 2013 Flash Memory Summit, Samsung introduced the first solid state drive (SSD) based on its industry-leading 3D V-NAND technology. The new drive uses a new fabrication technique, giving the drive an over 20 percent performance increase and over 40 percent drop in power consumption. The new line of drives is tailored for enterprise uses. Samsung said it began producing its new V-NAND SSDs earlier this month.

Samsung's V-NAND SSD comes in 960 gigabyte (GB) and 480GB versions. The 960GB version boasts the highest level of performance, offering more than 20 percent increase in sequential and random write speeds by utilizing 64 dies of MLC 3D V-NAND flash, each offering 128 gigabits of storage, with a six-gigabit-per-second SATA interface controller.

The new V-NAND SSD also offers 35K program erase cycles and is available in a 2.5 inch form factor only 7mm high, which provides server manufacturers with more design flexibility and scalability. Pricing for the drive is not yet available.
