Samsung unveils mSATA version of the 840 Evo solid-state drive

Samsung unveils mSATA version of the 840 Evo solid-state drive
At a storage capacity of 1TB, this drive is currently the largest mSATA SSD on the market.


Samsung's popular 840 Evo solid-state drive (SSD) has just gotten more versatile. Today the storage vendor announced the mSATA version of the drive.
mSATA is a design form that's much more compact than the standard 2.5-inch laptop drive. This means the drive can fit in more portable mobile devices, including ultraportable notebooks or even tablets -- as long as they have an mSATA socket. While mSATA SSDs are not new, the new 840 Evo mSATA SSD will offer the same capacity as its standard drive, up to 1TB, making it (for now) the largest on the market.
According to Samsung, the new 840 Evo mSATA SSD utilizes Samsung's advanced 128-gigabit (Gb) NAND flash memory based on 10-nanometer class process technology. This means that for a 1TB version SSD, a total of four flash memory packages are used, each package having 16 layers of 128Gb chips. The 1TB mSATA SSD comes in a thickness of 3.85 millimeters and a weight of just 8.5 grams, or some 40 percent thinner and just a twelfth of the weight of a typical 2.5-inch hard drive.

Unbelievable stuff Andrew just makes you wonder where it will all end up. But I hate to think how much it would cost though.

Having said that though I find this out here they must have made a mistake as we pay premium prices as a rule. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...aa4df500d0c186

In 20 years from now, these devices will cost pennies. I remember times when a 100MB disk pack for a host computer would cost $3500 - and that was without the unit which was very expensive but only leased.

What scares me is that in 20 years we will have UltraMega3DHHHHD stuff that will fill that with a couple movies.

Or some ridiculous .docxxxx standard for Word documents that manage to waste 100 MB per page.

Those were the modern times. Long before we had this one. It cost $160.000 for 10 to 20MB.
