Samsung show off a new Z-NAND powered SSD

 
Samsung has now shown off a new Z-NAND powered SSD, which is said to offer lower latencies and increased throughput when compared to traditional SSDs. 

Z-NAND is intended to help bridge the gap between DRAM, though unlike Intel's new XPoint memory, Z-NAND is not a new memory design but simply a type of NAND that offers better performance characteristics. At this time it is unknown how Samsung has changed this new NAND type, though they state that it offers much lower latencies and comes with a newly designed memory controller to take advantage of the NAND's improved characteristics.   

Samsung's first Z-NAND powered drive will offer capacities of 800GB, with 1TB, 2TB and 4TB drives planned for the future. These SSDs will come in a half height PCIe form factor and will offer sequential read/write speeds of 3.2GBps, with random read/write speeds of 750K/160K IOPS.

Samsung states that these new drives will offer 70% lower latency than their current NVMe drives, with many expecting that this new NAND will offer improved durability over Samsung MLC and TLC 3D V-NAND.

At the prices these will probably costs, not sure if it would be worth it. Intels new P drive would more than likely be much better.Quote

Now only if those heatsinks and PCI-E adapter cards could be bought separately Quote

Aye those are lovely. You can buy a kit, but it's a bit expensive. There are some Chinese ones I might try though.Quote
