Lenovo announces 48 TB SSD, Seagate to reach 60 TB
Last summer, Samsung introduced a 16 TB SSD. Now, although regular hard disc drives still have to reach that capacity, Lenovo and Seagate announced they are working on even larger SSDs. While Lenovo plans to launch a 48 TB SSD, Seagate plans to become the leader of the market by launching a new SSD that would offer no less than 60 TB of storage space.
Although these are not rumors and both companies have confirmed these large SSDs, it looks like regular notebooks will not get such drives anytime soon. Lenovo's upcoming SSDs has a physical size about twice as a 2.5-inch drive, and the 60 TB Seagate SSD is expected to come out about as large as an old-school 3.5-inch hard drive.
Unfortunately, it looks like both Lenovo and Seagate plan to offer these new drives to enterprise clients. Due their size (and price, most likely) they would be out of reach for regular consumers anyway. Unfortunately, there is no info about their pricing and release dates yet, but we will keep you posted.
