Samsung has announced the start of production of the new solid state drives, NVMe PCIe. The SSD, called PM971-NVMe, are really small, almost as much as a postage stamp.
Designed for next-generation PCS and notebooks ultra-thin, the PM971-NVMe measure 20mm x 16mm x 1.5 mm and weighs about a gram. Its volume is about one-hundredth of that of the SSD or HDD 2.5 inch, and offer performance that can exceed the interface of a SATA 6Gb/s, read/write speed of about 1500MB/s and 900MB/s respectively.
According to the press release from Samsung, the SSD takes about 3 seconds to transfer a movie in Full HD. This will be available in configurations from 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
Apple has adopted in the past for its Mac SSDS from Samsung, and it is very likely that the Cupertino company will adopt the new SSD for the Mac in the future. There is of course nothing is certain, but Apple has proved to be always in step with the times.
