If you thought Toshiba might simply hand over all solid state drive chores to its recently acquired OCZ Storage Solutions subsidiary, think again. Toshiba will continue to build its own brand SSDs alongside OCZ and today announced its new HG6 series. It's the newest edition to the HG family and is intended for a wide range of applications, everything from ultrabooks and ultrathins to data center servers.
Toshiba Storage today announced a new line of high-performance, energy efficient solid state drives (SSDs) that are supposedly the first to take advantage of 19nm processor toggle multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory chips. The new 'THNSNF' drives, as Toshiba named them, are designed for a variety of applications, from high-end and thin and light notebooks, to all-in-one desktops and embedded systems.
With a little help from its manufacturing partner Toshiba, SanDisk today announced a 64Gb (gigabit), 2-bits-per-cell (X2) based monolithic chip produced using 19nm manufacturing technology. This, SanDisk says, is the most advanced memory process technology node in the world, and with it, the flash memory card maker intends to produce embedded and removable storage devices with high capacities for things like mobile phones, tablets PCs, and other portable products.
