This new achievement is double Samsung's previous efforts, but what can we expect from this new memory technology? Well, how do massive SSDs sound? Samsung added that manufacturing is 40% more productive, so the bigger SSDs won't come with an inflated price when they're released. Samsung is hoping to continue making its 256-gigabit flash memory for the rest of the year, so we should see products with this technology inside of them starting towards the end of the year, or into 2016.
