Due to the magic of programs such as Google Drive, iCloud or Dropbox it is not often we are worried about running out of room to our cherished family pictures.
But even sowe had to stop and pay attention to the complete component of a storage drive that has been shown by Samsung now.
The South Korean firm says it is going to begin mass-producing the 4 terabyte solid state pushes it constructed a year or two back.
Meaning, in theory, you can fit around 1,000 hours of high definition movie onto these items before filling this up. Ok, so it may not be up there with Netflix as it comes to the amount of material you may get, but it is not to be sniffed at when it comes to archiving.
Samsung says it intends to also release 1TB and 2TB models and that the very first ones will be available after this year. Each one will even arrive with a three-year guarantee. Making them a whole pile quicker than a classic spinning hard diskdrive.
‘Samsung’s fresh 4-bit SATA SSD will herald a huge transfer to terabyte-SSDs for customers,’ said Jaesoo Han, executive vice president of memory sales & marketing at Samsung Electronics.
‘As we expand our lineup across consumer segments and to the enterprise, 4-bit terabyte-SSD products will rapidly spread throughout the entire market.’
The company has not announced pricing for its drives yet but fair warning: in the beginning, these will not be cheap.
