The Global Summit SSD, Samsung is pushing SSD is not only in the technologies of the future, but the technology that users need today to keep up with the speeds available wired and wireless technologies. With new protocols such as USB 3.1, Thunderbolt 3, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and mobile broadband 5G, hard drives are like a bottleneck computing experience.

Traditional hard drives rely on the protocol SATA III, which is limited to 6 Gbps. By 2015, this rate was more than enough. Hard drives, based on the protocol of SATA II and SATA III can keep up with the existing wired and wireless standards such as USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11n.

However, the PC supporting a new start, faster standards, for the first time in the history of computing, the venerable hard drive is not able to keep up.

Quick Technologies

New computers today are beginning to support rapid technologies such as USB 3.0 and USB-3.1, Thunderbolt and 3 Wi-Fi 802.11ac. These technologies provide a higher data rate than 6 Gbps SATA III to cover.

For example, USB-3.1 can transfer data up to 10 Gbps Thunderbolt and 3 can reach speeds up to 20 Gbps, the rate of more than 6 Gbps SATA III ,. In the future, mobile broadband 5G, a technology that will replace the 4G LTE, you can transfer data to 1Tbps.

With these fast speeds, SATA III and hard drive, which relies on the protocol obsolete data connection, said Ryan Smith, senior product manager of SSD marketing for Samsung Semiconductor.

drives and NVMe

The new Samsung SSDs rely on non-volatile memory express or NVMe, a protocol that provides a faster processor in the performance data storage and reduced delays. Smith says that this technology of the future, and the SSD-drives using NVMe can keep pace with the wired and wireless technology available today.

advantage to NVMe based drive is that the SSD-drives are able to handle multiple data queue, and thus suitable for workstations and servers. This allows servers to handle simultaneous I / O requests.

Samsung dedicated broadcast live video in one example, when the SSD-drives are more suitable than hard drives.

Simultaneous requests for data

In the presentation, Peter Morrone, senior vice president of Product Engineering for Chyron, described the process for which the graph is superimposed over the video channels. One example of a technology Chyron is a live animation and graphics on sporting events

“We used a variety of media,” Morrone said, “but drives made such a significant impact on our business :. Time to market, time to manufacture and provide a better user experience, “

In the past, graphic overlays were done in post-production, meaning that they were not available for live broadcasts. However, due NVMe allows partners Chyron handle bursts of data at the same time, the video feed can be loaded, edited and loaded while another clip is loaded. This reduces downtime and allows you to live in a real-time graphical overlays.

drives allow sports broadcasters to fulfill their goals, said Morrone. Broadcasters are able to deliver the best user experience, telling the best stories with the best visual effects.

Global demand for SSD-

estimates Samsung, the global demand for NAND memory this year, only 84 billion euros GB, and that this number is twice as much as in 2019 209 billion GB data. Smartphones are the main reasons for the consumption of memory today, but the growth will outpace smartphone SSD memory consumption to move forward.

Consumers pay more attention to its solid state to increase the reliability, capacity and performance, according to a study by Samsung. 38% of consumers are shopping for a laptop know that there is SSD and one in three laptops today come with SSD, which made possible due to lower cost storage.

SSD considerations

For example, the average cost per GB SSD storage for about $ 0.38 in July 2015. Samsung plans to transport 13 million own brand SSD V-NAND memory in This year, for the after-market segment. V-NAND memory Samsung’s new brand for 3D-NAND.
