Toshiba introduces first SSDs built on its 96-layer 3D flash memory

• By Paul Ridden

The company says that it's aiming its XG6 series at client computer, high performance mobile, embedded, gaming and data center systems.

The XG6 drives use Toshiba's 96-layer BiCS FLASH 3D memory with 3 bits per cell for improved the performance, density and efficiency of solid state storage and a capacity increase of about 40 percent per unit chip size compared to 64-layer 3D flash modules.

The drives are reported capable of 3,180 MB/sec sequential read and almost 3,000 MB/sec sequential write speeds, with an IOPS performance rating of up to 355,000 random read executions and 365,000 random writes, while sipping just 4.7 W of power.
