The New Solid-State Drives from Samsung Are Way Too Fast for You


Do you need a solid-state drive that can read data at a sequential rate of 6 gigabytes per second? The answer is probably not, yet exactly that is what Samsung is giving with its PM9C1a SSD product range despite the fact that the answer is probably not. The performance of these M.2 solid-state drives is much better than that of the PM9B1 drives. This is due to the fact that these drives are the first M.2 drives to utilize Samsung’s 5nm controllers.

The PM9C1a solid-state drives that Samsung manufactures are primarily intended for use in portable electronic devices like laptops. They each have sequential read capabilities of 6,000 MBps while also having sequential write rates of 5,600 MBps. That read speed is 1.8 times faster than what the company’s PM9B1 drives are capable of achieving. This is a significant improvement, but it is probable that users will only notice it while they are playing games or completing other labor-intensive activities.

Even more remarkable is the fact that the PM9C1a is around seventy percent more efficient than its predecessor (and consumes 10 percent less power when a system is in standby mode). As a result of this improvement in power efficiency, the battery life of laptops should be able to persist for a longer period of time, and the thermal impact of apps that require a lot of processing power should be minimized. One of the cutting-edge security features that are included with the newest solid-state drives (SSDs), which are also known as flash drives, is device authentication through the use of cryptographically generated keys.

The safety protocol known as the Device Identifier Composition Engine makes this a real possibility (DICE). To be clear, the improved protection offered by PM9C1a is of a substantially higher value to businesses than it is to individual customers. The manufacturer of Samsung’s PM9C1a solid-state drives (SSDs), which will be available for purchase with storage capacities of 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB and will employ the M.2 form factor, has not given a release date for the product. There has been no decision made regarding the cost as of yet.
