The SSDs Are More Cheap And Economical

SSDs make traditional hard drives increasingly competitive. They work quickly and quietly - and need not be expensive. For less than 110 Euros you already get good models. Solid State Drives (SSDs) save files like USB sticks in flash memory. You are therefore completely without moving parts and are much faster than traditional hard disk drives (HDDs).

They work almost completely silent. Especially for the installation of the operating system and programs using SSDs are ideal. The computer starts up will be faster, applications can be launch faster. In short, the daily work with the computer feels superfluous. Files such as music, videos, office documents and photos, you can still place it on a HDD - which affects the speed of the PC barely.

Therefore mostly an SSD with a capacity of 60-128 gigabytes is more sufficient. And you can also save more money by buying a new SSD.

Samsung detailed more about its V-NAND and New SSD

Samsung recently unveiled memory chips NAND Flash V-operator a new architecture supposed to improve reliability and performance. At the same time, the manufacturer the opportunity to present a SSD of 960 GB, which is not unlike what has Crucial M500 series with her. A few days ago, Samsung showed that the mass production of memory chips NAND-Flash V (Vertical NAND), had begun. Unlike the conventional NAND using a 2D structure; the V-NAND is gaining height and it passes relief stacking layers. Up to 24 for the time the Samsung said. As stated in the presentation of the Flash Memory Summit, Samsung believes that the reduction of fine engraving comes to its limits. Besides the possibility to switch to alternatives such as TLC NAND and three bits per cell (rather than two), as explained in that other document, you must solve the problem of interference that are increasingly important as the transistor size is reduced. The structure type Floating Gate MOSFET (FGMOS) is set aside for the passage Charge Trap Flash (CTF) that is more reliable and better density. The whole is then stacked to provide chips that are still operating the same fine engraving, but are also able to hold more data.

Samsung announces and mentioned that it already produce faster SSDs consume less and less equivalent operating chip storage capacity. But the company is also focusing on to a strong impact of the arrival of this technology in the market and listing and expects an explosion of its orders on the business market and the general public in 2020. Unfortunately, the surprise and the announcement effect turn this time a little short, without details. Of course, we know they operate a S-ATA 6Gb / s, but the rates and IOPS are not specified. The manufacturer just announced that "960 GB version has the highest level of performance, with over 20% more sequential reading and writing through the use of 64 die of 3D V-MLC NAND, each with a storage capacity of 128 GB ". Finally, we just know that the SSD NAND-V are given for 35,000 erase cycles, which is particularly high because is generally between 3000 and 5000 cycles with conventional MLC chips. Now we have to wait until the first returns of independent tests to find out what it is exactly V-chip NAND and SSD exploiters. Samsung says that the production of these began at the beginning of the forthcoming year, so we will soon have more information.
