Samsung’s new 4TB SSDs will be cheaper than ever before
Last year, Samsung unveiled its first 1-terabit V-NAND chip. At the time, it ensured consumers that the new memory solutions would allow for the creation of solid state drives (SSDs) with significantly increased capacity. Samsung then followed through on its promise this week with the announcement that it has begun mass producing the industry's first 4-bit QLC 4TB SATA SSDs specifically designed for consumers.
Samsung introduced 4TB hard drives back in 2016, but at a steep price of $1,499, they weren't exactly attainable for the average consumer. And although Samsung didn't share any pricing information for the new SSDs, the language in the press release makes it clear that these are aimed at consumers (and thus will be more affordable).
