Sandisk enables higher capacity SSDs than 4TB out until next year




Sandisk has confirmed that it will launch next year SSDs with higher capacity than 4TB. That the company has announced at the presentation of the quarterly figures. Were first such models planned for 2015.

It is not a matter for the consumer SSDs, but storage for the enterprise market. That is also the target for the current Optimus Max with 4TB. This is presumably to 6TB and 8TB models, both with the same SAS interface as the Optimus Max. Where the interface now offers even 6Gbps / s, a new generation has to jack up to 12Gbit / s. Which is based on Toshiba memory made on a 15nm-process. Further details about the upcoming SSDs still missing.

Sandisk estimates that the SSDs with higher capacity than 4TB from late 2016 to contribute to the revenues, making it appear that the SSDs will come later in the year on the market. Previously thought the company still from 2015 SSDs to deliver with 8TB, but that failed. What has caused the delay is unknown.

When there are SSDs with such capabilities for consumers are is not clear.
