Fixstars presents world’s highest capacity SSD

Solid-state drives are the latest trend in the digital storage world – the offer exceptionally low power consumption, small and light chassis, support for the latest storage technologies and awesome speed when it comes to data transfers. Yet, they have one single major drawback – capacity – and even the most spacious solid-state drives (SSD) cannot match modern hard disk drives.

This might no longer be the case as the quite unknown Japanese company Fixstars has announced the world’s highest capacity SSD, at least in the common 2.5-inch form factor. The model, which goes by the brand name of Fixstars SSD-6000M, offers the record capacity of 6000 GB (6 TB) and uses 15 nm MLC NAND flash memory. Unfortunately the memory controller that is in use is unknown but the drive reaches up to 540 MB/sec of read speed and up to 520 MB/sec of write speed. Moreover the drive offers all modern SSD technologies including S.M.A.R.T., NCQ and TRIM. The SSD is 9.5 mm thick and will be on the market in July 2015, offering a 3-year warranty.

There’s no information on the price of the Fixstars SSD-6000M SSD but given the record capacity, the price may easily be a record one too.
