Samsung releases first TLC NAND SSDs

The Korean tech company Samsung has released the world’s first solid-state drives that offer TLC NAND flash memory and serve the corporate market.

The new SSDs belong to the PM853T product line and offer the so called Triple Level Cell (TLC) flash memory although Samsung calls this memory 3-bit MLC NAND. The main feature of this memory is that a single cell can hold three bits of information. The memory is manufactured on 10 nm technology and apart from energy efficiency the new PM853T SSDs offer 530 MB/sec of read speed and 430 MB/sec of write speed. In addition to these numbers expect to get up to 90 000 IOPS when reading and up to 14 000 IOPS when writing.

The PM853T line offers 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB models but the price of these SSDs is still unknown.
