One of the senior managers of the SAMSUNG Korean Tehnogiant say that in the second half of the year the company plans to submit a new consumer SSD based on the seventh-generation V-NAND memory chips. They will be able to boast the smallest cell size in the industry.
It is reported that a new solution will be optimized for multitasking and huge workloads, such as 3D modeling and video editing. True, in modern realities it is likely that the novelty will indulge and miners Chia. In addition to the Samsung consumer market, it plans to withdraw SSD based on the seventh generation V-NAND and in the server segment, including suggesting models for the data center.
Recall that V-NAND is a Samsung flash memory design that implies the vertical placement of the memory cells that form a three-dimensional structure. Other manufacturers call similar 3D NAND solutions. The company first commercialized such a decision, presenting the original 3D V-NAND in 2013.
It is reported that in the seventh generation V-NAND, Samsung engineers managed to reduce the size of the cells by about 35 percent due to the decrease in the surface area and height using the innovative technology of three-dimensional scaling. It is noted that Samsung is the only company in the industry with etching technology capable of creating more than 100 layers on one crystal and combine them between themselves more than a billion compounds. In addition, the company has already received a working chip of the V-NAND of the eighth generation, which contains more than 200 layers at all. Products based on it is planned to submit after analyzing the market situation and consumer demand.
According to the research company Trendforce, Samsung is the world’s largest NAND flash memory manufacturer with a share of 33.5% in revenue in the first quarter of this year. This business brought the company $ 4.97 billion in the first three months of 2021, which is 7 percent exceeding the performance for the previous quarter.
