Samsung’s first BGA SSD boasts 1500 MB/s speeds

Samsung’s first BGA SSD boasts 1500 MB/s speeds

Our mobile devices, both smartphones and tablets, are getting more capable. Processors are more powerful, displays are higher resolution, RAM memory is getting faster. These days, the bottleneck falls on the internal storage that hosts the files and programs that give life to these devices. The race for smaller but denser storage solutions is on, and leaders in the industry have been showing off their wares in a steady flow of new or update technologies. At the 2016 Samsung SSD Forum Japan, Samsung showed off its own solution: its first ever BGA-based SSD chip.

Western Digital’s 314GB drive offers RPi a low-power solution

Western Digital’s 314GB drive offers RPi a low-power solution

The Raspberry Pi, in all its incarnations, have become a darling within the hacker and hobbyist community. That's due to the little board's potential and affordability. The RPi alone, however, isn't capable enough for all the magical things you might want to make it do. That's were all the connectors and accessories and extra storage space comes in. Western Digital, one of the bigger names in the digital storage industry, is trying to woo this growing market of makers and tinkerers and has announced a 314GB PiDrive designed specifically with the Raspberry Pi's constraints in mind.

Intel’s super fast Optane SSDs could make their way into MacBooks

Intel’s super fast Optane SSDs could make their way into MacBooks

With increasingly more capable CPUs and GPUs, the bottlenecks of computing have lately been relocated to memory, both in RAM to some extent but especially in persistent data storage. The race is on among chip makers to produce not just the highest density storage technology but also the fastest. Intel, a name you'd more commonly associate with CPUs rather than storage devices, is also taking part in that race alongside storage maker Micron. And the first fruit of their friendship, the blazingly fast Optane SSD, might even be first seen in Apple's next MacBooks.

Synology launches the new DS216j home NAS

There used to be a time where virtually all of your files were stored on a single computer. Maybe you'd have CDs or floppy disks with some backups, but that was generally it. In today's world, you don't necessarily want all of your media and important documents sitting on a desktop or a laptop. Instead, you might look to a NAS to help you out.

Samsung releases 16TB SSD, officially making it the world’s largest drive

Samsung releases 16TB SSD, officially making it the world’s largest drive

I run SSDs in my desktops, because I want to enjoy the performance boost that I get from them. My computer will boot faster, programs open faster, and loading times on my games are significantly lower. Of course, I have a NAS where I use traditional spinning hard drives to store my larger bits of data. This is because the older spinning style disks have considerably more storage space than even the largest SSDs. Well, at least that used to be the case.

Paper shows SSDs are unreliable but in a different way

Paper shows SSDs are unreliable but in a different way

PCs today, especially laptops but even some desktops, are starting to use SSDs for data storage. They are, however, also starting to get into servers. The relatively (compared to HDD) younger technology is often praised for its speed and its reliability, mostly due to its use of NAND flash memory instead of physically moving parts and magnetic platters. A new study, however, shows that while that much is true, SSDs fail in a different set of reliability tests that might even be more problematic. The paper chose for its subject the company that eats through data storage devices like there's no tomorrow: Google.

DIY 118GB floppy drive makes those A drives useful again

DIY 118GB floppy drive makes those A drives useful again

Anyone who has been around computers for very long will remember the good ol' A drive. Back in the day, the 3.5-inch floppy drive sat at the top of the drive hierarchy and if you venture into BIOS, you can still find remnants of that drive, even if you have never owned one. Computer geeks who hoard their gear probably have a slew of 3.5-inch floppy drives sitting around and if so, you can make yourself this floppy drive with 118GB of storage.
