Samsung Crams 8TB Into Its Next-Gen PCIe 4.0 SSD

According to the folks at Tom's Hardware, Samsung's next-gen PCIe 4.0 SSD will come packed with sixteen 512-GB NAND packages each stacked in sixteen layers of 256 Gb 3-bit V-NAND chips.

Samsung has come a long way from the days of exporting dried fish to becoming the industry’s leading solid-state drive manufacturer. The Korean giant’s dominance extends from the conventional SATA 2.5-inch drive to the latest M.2 form factor, but today it revealed an upcoming 8TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 solid-state drive based on the NF1 form factor.
