"With the industry’s fastest NAND I/O speed of 2.4 gigabytes per second (GB/s), Micron's 232-layer NAND delivers the low-latency and high-throughput requirements of data-centric workloads, such as artificial intelligence, unstructured databases, real-time analytics, and cloud computing.1

1NAND I/O speed is 1.6GB/s at the time of market introduction"


Data Density​

World's densest NAND offers customers design flexibility while enabling the highest TLC density per square millimeter ever produced at 14.6 Gb/mm2. The areal density is between 35% and 100% greater than competing TLC products.2

2Based on comparison of NAND currently shipping at time of announcement"

I'm really looking forward to SSD prices coming down. It seemed for a long time that storage prices were just tumbling to incredible levels, but that has slowed significantly more recently. I wonder if we're just not using much more data than we were 5/10 years ago, so there isn't the same need to push down price per TB.

I remember trying to use a 600MB hard drive as a daily driver. I was constantly uninstalling apps just to install others :fool:

I swapped out my small nvme drive fro a 1TB one back in 2020 and have been very happy with it. Blisteringly fast and I can boot up me Arch in

Put brain in gear befor pressing enter19:38:30-->Fri Dec 18-->~
Startup finished in 1.024s (kernel) + 900ms (userspace) = 1.924s reached after 758ms in userspace

which I think is pretty fast enough for me.

My old Skylake mobo Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 7 is only PCIE Gen 3 an I could have got a faster Gen3 drive but they were much more expensive and I did not think that they were worth the loot.
Glad I did not buy a more expensive drive as tech has moved swiftly on and we now have PCIE Gen4 which is twice as fast as Gen3.

What is the difference between PCIe Gen 3 and PCIe Gen 4?

You can now buy for example a Gen4 drive for £20 less than my Gen3 drive.

An will be twice as fast. :drool:

As I am getting older I am thinking of going back to hdd drives as the poor old grey cell is having difficulty keeping up these days. I used to make a coffe whilst the pc was booting way back, now I don't even have time to blink. :fool:
