New Korean StartUp Fadu Displays ‘Worlds Fastest SSD’ – Flash Memory Summit 2016 Update

From a personal perspective, one of the most amusing things about this years Flash Memory Summit is the fact that any number of vendors are purporting to have the world’s fastest SSD in their clutch.  This is no different with Fadu, a small South Korean startup who had their own SSD, the EC800F on display and functioning.

Fadu EC800FAs much as won’t be said about the inside of this device, specifications list it as a 3.2TB device, capable of 5GB/s read and write with up to 1.1mil IOPS read and 539K IOPS write.
