Solidigm has a brand new SSD on the best way that is match to burst. The Solidigm D5-P5336 is full of as much as 61.44 terabytes of QLC NAND, which is probably going equal to a lifetime provide of storage for few players.

Rated to 7000 MB/s sequential learn and 3100 MB/s sequential write, it is a fairly fast drive contemplating it is constructed from QLC NAND, which is kind of a bit slower than different varieties. That most likely means when you get right down to the uncooked NAND for large transfers, or when the drive begins filling up, it will not be anyplace close to as fast, however we’re not likely speaking a couple of gaming SSD right here so you do not have to fret.

The rationale it is not for players is that this newer drive will are available U.2 and E1.L kind elements when it launches later this 12 months (through TechSpot). Which means it is virtually a server-only drive. You completely can match a U.2 drive into your machine, but when you find yourself with a kind of E1.L drives at 318.75mm lengthy, it’ll be a little bit of a squeeze. You will even have to chill this child off with some mighty followers. It is simply not a virtually sound storage answer for most people.

Solidigm truly exhibits off an image of a server loaded up with 32 of those unhealthy boys. That is 1966 TB in a single rack, or very almost two petabytes of solid-state storage. I additionally discovered this 2U SSD server with house for as much as 108 E1.L drives, and that’d whole over six petabytes of storage. I dread to think about how a lot cooling is required for this kind of monstrous storage answer, particularly as every D5-P5336 requires as much as 25W whereas lively.

Now if this SSD seems to be acquainted that is as a result of it ought to (to anybody that is actually into SSDs). Solidigm was as soon as Intel’s in-house storage outfit, bought off to SK Hynix in 2021, however whereas beneath Intel’s branding it had introduced a really lengthy drive by the identify of the D5-P5316 with as much as 30.72 TB capability. Solidigm nonetheless sells the D5-P5316 beneath its personal model, and this newer drive, the D5-P5336, is doubling that efficient capability.
