Walking around the booth floor of FMS, we found Hynix displaying some new products. What happened to catch our eye was a 1 TB M.2 SSD on display. Advertised performance for the PCIe Gen 2 M.2 drives comes in at 1.4GB/s reads and up to 930MB/s writes and 120k/100k read/write IOPS for the 1TB model.
Furthermore, they have standard 2.5″ MLC and TLC and mSATA drives on display. Hynix is also offering a SATA 6Gb/s M.2 version SSD in 256GB and 512GB capacity. Sequential read coming in at 540MB/s and sequential write at 520MB/s burst and 98k/90k read/write IOPS for the 512GB model.
What we really found interesting was their display of their own 3D NAND wafer.
Hynix is now moving towards producing 128Gb MLC 3D NAND. Samsung isn’t going to be the only kid in the sandbox anymore!
This is just a quick preview, there will be more to come!
