During the MWC 2018, the manufacturer of storage announces new memories and SSDS to meet the market of smartphones and environments peripherals of IoT.

Western Digital, present in Mobile World Congress 2018, took the opportunity to show new technologies and units that give a response to the exponential growth of data generated by users and companies. There are increasingly more devices are diverse, from smartphones to servers, going through machines full of sensors and connected to the internet of things. This requires hardware manufacturers to incorporate in their products more storage capacity and technology of processing of I/O much faster.

Well, he has presented the  new architecture is SSD NVMe along with the new units PC SN720 and PC SN520 based on it. The manufacturer explains that they are components designed to respond to high-performance applications such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence, games, video editing in 4K… so computers need storage systems that alleviate the traditional bottlenecks while are able to hold all the information generated. Also, the units greatly reduce the energy consumption, another detail to take into account.

The architecture SSD NVMe has been designed especially to be used in different environments and form factors to be used in a wide range of devices. These are some of its features:

the

  • Western Digital PC SN720: Will be available in capacities of 245GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB with the chips soldered in plates of a single face. Provide speed sequential read/write up to 3,400 MB/s, and 2,800 MB/s, respectively.
  • the

  • Western Digital PC SN520: Will be available in a variety of form factors for a larger number of cases of implementation. They will have capacities of 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. According to the company these models are the least energy consumption of the industry.
  • on the other hand, Western Digital has shown new chips advanced for embedding in smartphones and other devices of small size, were announced last December and for the first time see the light. Are based on the technology 3D NAND iNAND (own manufacturer) 64 layers and interfaces UFS and and.MMC. This are the two models introduced under the brand Sandisk:

    the

  • Sandisk iNAND 8521 EFD: Designed for the most demanding users, to give response to the increasing needs for performance and storage that will come with the 5G. You are able to double the speed of sequential write and multiply by 10 the speed of random write compared to the previous generation of drives iNAND.
  • the

  • Sandisk iNAND 7550 EFD: This variety will provide the manufacturing of smartphones, more economic and other computing devices but that offer large storage capacity to the users of consumption. The company ensures that it can reach 260 MB/s in sequential write.
  • Both models will be available in capacities up to 256GB.

    finally, in the section of external memory cards has been submitted, the unit SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card of 400GB, a true monster of the storage in the size of a fingernail.

    it Is, according to the manufacturer, the fastest in the  world, specifically a 50% more efficient than the current SanDisk Extreme card. You are able to get to the 160MB/s read and 90MB/s write.
