A new posting on Samsung's Japanese website has revealed the 750 Series hard drive. It uses older production technology to hit affordable price points the company's more advanced 950 Series drives can't achieve.
As companies search for the next breakthrough in storage, Samsung becomes the second manufacturer in as many days to announce new solid state drives that make use of Non-Volatile Memory Express technology.
PCI Express drives are the new benchmark for SSD performance, and Zotac knows that's where the industry is headed, so it's diving in with its new Sonix drive. It uses Toshiba memory and promises extremely high read speeds.
Samsung's new M.2 SSD is called the 950 Pro, continuing its traditional numbers game naming scheme. It claims to have huge performance gains over traditional interfaces, as well as increased long term durability.
In early August, SanDisk and Toshiba announced the world's first 256Gbit, 48-layer NAND chip for solid state drives. Now Samsung has its own version of the same, and the race is on to bring it to retail products.
