CES 2017 - SSDs are getting smaller and smaller, and as they do, they become more and more potent. Toshiba's latest BG Series M.2 NVMe SSD lineup is a prime example of this trend, and the company took to the show floor at Las Vegas to display its tiny-yet-mighty storage drives.

Toshiba's latest BG Series M.2 SSDs are shorter than most M.2 drives on the market, measuring just 16mm by 20mm. Despite their size, the drives still harness the power of Toshiba's high-end BiCS Flash memory, which sees TLC NAND flash memory cells stacked vertically in 48 layers to enable capacities up to 512GB in size and take full advantage of NVMe and PCIe 3.0 x2 protocols.

Toshiba's BG Series comes in 128GB, 256GB or 512GB capacities, but don't expect to be able to buy these chips: they'll only be available to select OEMs for specific products like mobile tablets and 2-in-1 notebooks.
