Samsung unveils new 1 Terabye SSD made with 3D V-NAND Flash Memory.

Samsung V Nand

Samsung Electronics have begun mass production of its 2nd-generation three-dimensional (3D) V-NAND flash memory. The new Flash memory chip is more cost-efficient that the previous-genration of 3D V-NAND and stacks 32 multi-level cell (MLC) NAND storage layers in one chip package, up from 24 layers in the first-generation MLC NAND Chip.

According to Samsung, the 32-layer 3D V-NAND requires a higher level of design technology to stack the cell arrays than the previous 24-layer V-NAND and is fabricated using similar production equipment that was used for making the first generation 3D V-NAND Chip.

Samsung claims that its V-NAND Chips offers two times more reliability (endurance) and is twice as fast as multi-level-cell (MLC) type planar NAND flash memory.Samsung continues to use its 42nm process technology for production of the 2nd-gen V-NAND.

Meanwhile ,Samsung have released its newest 1TB solid-state drive based on its newest 2nd generation 3D V-NAND Flash memory technology in which storage chips are stacked vertically.

The new SSDs have two times the durability in writing data and are 20 percent more power efficient than conventional NAND-based SSDs in which storage modules are placed side by side.

The SSD is targeted at high-end PCs and will be available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacity SSDs. Prices are not yet available.
