Samsung unviels The World’s Largest hard drive

CALIFORNIA: Samsung revealed a new 2.5-inch SSD drive capable of holding an incredible 16 terabytes of data.


The SSD is filled with stacks and stacks of Samsung’s 256Gbit NAND flash dies; there are probably about 480-500 of these dies inside the SSD.

Analysts predict the device will sell in the range of $5,000 – $7,000 and will be targeted towards enterprise customers.

But eventually it will likely be available to consumers and will drop in price, as well — a good thing, considering all the data-demanding VR and 4K films coming out these days.
