Your next laptop might have a 4TB SSD, thanks to Samsung

Samsung claims its drive will be the "industry's first 4-bit consumer SSD", but we'll have to see about that.

Samsung has included a three-year warranty with the QLC drive anyways. Back in 2006 when SSDs were just starting to appear, the flash chips Samsung used were 70nm and stored just 4Gb allowing for a drive with 32GB of storage.

In addition, Samsung discloses that it will make use of the same technology "to efficiently produce a 128GB memory card for smartphones that will lead the charge toward higher capacities for high-performance memory storage".

Rand Paul Delivers Trump Letter To Putin
Rand Paul announced Wednesday that he delivered a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin from US President Donald Trump . The White House later clarified that it was written as a means of introduction for the senator, who wanted to meet with Mr.

'Samsung's new 4-bit SATA SSD will herald a massive move to terabyte-SSDs for consumers, ' predicts Samsung's Jaesoo Han of the impending launch. Samsung said that its new SSDs have "outstanding performance" and are expected to bring a new level of efficiency to consumer SSDs.

Created to increase the capacity available from each NAND chip, QLC is a form of multi-level cell technology which allows four individual bits per memory cell - vastly increasing capacity over the company's existing triple-level cell (TLC) equivalent.

The company also expects to provide M.2 NVMe SSDs for enterprises and start mass production of 4-bit 5th-generation V-NAND.

US urges Canada and Saudi Arabia to resolve feud
Meanwhile, the United States - one of Canada's closest allies - has so far refused to wade into the row. A Saudi airline has also interrupted flights to the North American country.

As a result, sequential read speed is given as 540 MB/s and sequential write as 520 MB/s, though random read/write figures have yet to be revealed.

Samsung says it plans to also release 1TB and 2TB versions and that the first ones will be available later this year.

And if you're anxious about reliability, know that these drives will have a pretty generous three-year warranty. In the upcoming 4TB drive, Samsung says that 32 of the aforementioned V-NAND chips are utilised.

Saudi Arabia's Prince Alwaleed bin Talal buys stake in Snapchat
Saudi Arabia's Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has bought a 2.3% stake in Snap - the company behind Snapchat - for $250m (£193m). Snapchat ad prices are down 90 percent in the past two years as it adopts automation, which typically drives down pricing.

The Samsung 4TB 850 EVO SSD is now listed on Amazon.co.uk with a £1,399.99 retail price (albeit discounted to £999.99 at present).
