Samsung look set to make sure 2018 goes down as the Their Year Of Rebirth. With the release date of the highly anticipated Galaxy S9 drawing closer, Samsung has reached into their bottomless bag of tricks and hit us with a beauty.
What comes in a 2.5-inch form and has the ability to hold over 5,000 full HD Movies? Samsung PM 1643. It is a SAS drive with a 30.72TB capacity that is built out of the latest V-NAND chips.
The new Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) drive offers impressive sequential read and write speeds of up to 2,100MB/s and 1,700 MB/s. This is about three times as fast as the average SSD you’d find on a consumer desktop or laptop.
On the durability side, Samsung says you can write 30.72TB of data each day for five years. A five-year warranty is the best you can get for any hard drive out there.
The exact date when the PM 1643 goes on sale is still unknown with a representative confirming plans to expand their range of SAS SSD later this year.
We’re still very far away from getting this kind of storage on a laptop but for now, Samsung has provided the best way to store all your data.
