The largest Samsung SSD available is sitting at a huge 1.6TB, but not anymore - the company has just unveiled its enterprise-class SM1715, which cranks this up to a gigantic 3.2TB.

Samsung's new SM1715 SSD is a PCIe-based device, using a PCI Express 3.0 port, based on NVMe technology. The new drive also features Samsung's new 3D V-NAND technology, where storage chips are placed on top of one another, and not next to each other, with the storage chips connected through a very thin, high-speed connector called TSV, or Thru Silicon Via.

 

This new technology paves the way for increased read/writes, with sequential read speeds on the new SM1715 at a huge 3000MB/sec, or 3GB/sec and writes sitting at an equally-impressive 2200MB/sec, or 2.2GB/sec. Random read speeds on the drive are at 750,000 IOPS, while writes are at 130,000 IOPS. Samsung will also make the SM1715 available in 1.6TB, as well as the 3.2TB behemoth.
