DRAM, NAND Flash Prices Expected to Increase in 4Q2016

According to a new report from DRAMeXchange, DRAM and NAND Flash prices are expected to increase in 4Q2016 and beyond due to growing demand and a tightening supply.

PC DRAM prices are expected to increase as much as 15% thanks to decreasing PC DRAM supply and increasing notebook shipments which are expected to increase more than 8% in the 4th quarter. DRAM makers are scaling back PC DRAM production in order to expand mobile and server DRAM production which now constitute the lion’s share of the DRAM market. Mobile DRAM is also expected to see price increases in the coming months with some smartphone makers negotiating contracts with prices 10% higher than 3rd [...]

Client SSD Market Outpaces Forecast by 7%, Samsung Dominates Once Again in 2Q2016

Market intelligence firm TrendFocus recently released a report on the SSD market for calendar Q2 and as you’d expect, the SSD and NAND market is doing very well.

Client SSDs did the best shipping nearly 30 million units representing a total of 8.24 exabytes, or 66% of the total 12.41 exabytes shipped in Q2. This is 7% higher than the original forecast with shipment increases seen in all form factors and market segments.

Enterprise SSDs didn’t do so bad either, shipping 4.068 million units representing a total of 4.17 exabytes, or 34% of the total 12.41 exabytes shipped in Q2. This is a healthy 10% increase over Q1 with shipment increases seen in all [...]

Samsung Unveils 32TB SSD Leveraging 4th Gen 64-Layer 3D V-NAND

At Flash Memory Summit, Samsung recently unveiled a new 32TB 2.5″ SAS SSD making it the world’s biggest in the 2.5″ form factor. Although Seagate also recently introduced their own massive 60TB SSD at the show, Seagate’s solution utilizes the SFF 3.5″ form factor which is significantly larger than Samsung’s drive.

In order to achieve such capacities, Samsung is leveraging their all new 4th Generation 3D V-NAND which now features 64-layers, a whopping 30% increase in cell density over their previous 3rd Generation 48-layer 3D V-NAND. Samsung’s new 64-layer product utilizes 3-bit per cell (TLC) technology to achieve 512Gb [...]

Seagate Unveils 60TB SAS SSD, Claims Highest Capacity Drive in the World

In addition to the Nytro XP7200, Seagate also unveiled an unnamed 60TB SAS SSD, which Seagate claims is the highest capacity SSD in the world. In order to achieve such a feat, Seagate was able to utilize the same controller used in the Seagate 1200.2 SSD, but also included a staggering 1,280 NAND flash dies linked via bridge chips. These bridge chips allow the SSD controller to communicate with far more NAND dies than would typically be allowed without the bridge chips.

Designed for large storage arrays, archives and other read intensive applications, performance on the drive is weighed towards reads with sequential read performance rated at up to 1,500MB/s and random [...]

Seagate Unveils 10GB/s, 7.7TB Nytro XP7200 PCIe SSD Solution

Seagate has already made several announcements leading up to FMS this year, but they’ve saved a couple more for FMS as well.

Today Seagate announced the Nytro XP7200 which is a PCIe x16 AIC solution capable of delivering up to 10GB/s and just under 1 million IOPS.

While the numbers are fairly impressive on paper, the Seagate Nytro XP7200 is not really an actual SSD but rather a backplane card that hosts 4x Seagate Nytro XM1440 M.2 SSDs. As it’s a backplane card, it has no actual logic chip onboard, so in order to reach the advertised 10GB/s sequential and 940K IOPS random reads, it’ll require the user to run the setup in a software RAID [...]
