Week last Samsung announced the production of the first 3D (V-NAND) NAND Flash memory chips. A week later Samsung announces the first SSD in the world to incorporate Flash memory chips based on the new 3D vertical (V-NAND) NAND technology.

With this new technology Samsung claims to have overcome the obstacle posed by manufacturing at 10 nm or less, the new Samsung V-NAND 3D technology will offer a high density and reliability. It will also provide greater performance and lower energy consumption, 20% more performance and 40% less consumption.

 

The first series of SSDs based on this technology is called V-NAND SSD OCZ and will be available in two versions of 960 GB and 480 GB. The larger capacity model will equip 64 days of V-NAND 3D MLC (multi-level cell) Flash memory 128 GB each. The incorporation of these memory chips will mean an improvement in sequential and random 20% writing. The new V-NAND SSDs are in 2.5 inch with SATA 3 to 6 Gbps interface format and have 35K erase cycles. Its dimensions are 10 cm x 7 cm x 7 mm.
