These new SSDs are based on 3D V-NAND flash memory technology and deliver the highest level of performance and density available today, with read speeds of up to 3,000 MB/s and sequential writes up to 2,200 MB/s.

Samsung introduced the first 3D V-NAND based SATA SSDs for PCs and data centers back in 2013. One year later, the 2.5-inch XS1715 drive that uses this technology received a Flash Memory Summit Best of Show Award "for being one of the Most Innovative Flash Memory technologies." Now, the new NVMe PCIe SSD named SM1715 offers no less than 3.2 TB of storage space, twice the capacity of the previously largest NVMe SSD from Samsung.

According to Jeeho Baek, Vice President, Memory Marketing, Samsung Electronics "Samsung plans to actively introduce V-NAND-based SSDs with even higher performance, density and reliability in the future, to keep its global customers ahead of their competition." These are a few highlights of the 3.2 TB SM1715 NVMe SSD:

  • Sequential read/write speed: 3,000 MB/s; 2,200 MB/s
  • Random reads/writes: 750,000 IOPS; 130,000 IOPS
  • Reliability: 10 DWPDs for five years

Next to the 3.2 TB variant, a 1.6 TB SM1715 drive is now available as well. The XS1715 mentioned earlier also includes a variant that offers 800 GB of storage next to the high-capacity one with 1.6 TB. Since the SM1715 is a product aimed at the enterprise market, pricing is available on request.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
