It looks like Samsung is keen to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to storage technology, with the South Korean electronics giant announcing it has started manufacturing the first 256-gigabit (32GB) 3D vertical flash memory.




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.
