Samsung miniaturizira Z-SSD v oblikovalski faktor M.2



Samsung unveiled an M.2 variant of its flagship high-performance Z-SSD. Targeted at workstations, HPCs, and AI servers, the Z-SSD lineup is built around Samsung's proprietary Z-NAND flash memory, that offer 'up to 10 times' higher cell read performance than conventional 3D V-NAND (found on drives such as the 960 Pro). This performance is then traded off for the lowest possible latencies and response-times, which can help certain AI applications. The Z-SSD M.2 is built in the M.2-22110 (110 mm-long) form-factor, and features PCI-Express gen 3.0 x4 interface, and takes advantage of the NVMe protocol.

Zdi se, da ima pogon 8-kanalni krmilnik, ki je podoben tistemu, ki poganja podjetje PM983 SSD, in ne povsem 16-kanalni krmilnik, ki ga najdemo v večji različici AIC tega pogona. Na voljo v zmogljivostih 240 GB in 480 GB, pogon ponuja zaporedne hitrosti prenosa do 3200 MB / s branja, z do 2800 MB / s piše; z vzdržljivostjo 30 DWPD. Tako kot njegovi večji bratje in sestre je tudi Z-SSD M.2 na voljo s kondenzatorji, ki ponujajo zaščito pred izgubo energije. Podjetje ni razkrilo informacij o razpoložljivosti ali cenah.
