Samsung quietly revealed it is working on its next generation of smartphones solid state drives(Solid State Drives), with the upcoming PM9C1a. The company aims to “deliver high computing performance and gaming performance in laptops and PCs” for everyday situations.
With this design philosophy in place, the PM9C1a(Opens in new tab)It will run the PCIe4.0 (Peripheral component Interconnect Express) expansion bus for better consistency. (PCIe5.0 drives are still in development). The new controller, based on Samsung’s 5nm process, will be integrated into the upcoming drive in order to maintain the older standard. [and] 7th generation V-NAND technology”. This means that the PM9C1a will be more efficient and perform better than previous offerings.
Speed and efficiency
Samsung claims the future drive will have a sequential read speed up to 6,000MB/s (Megabytes/second) and a sequential writer speed of 5,600MB/s. This makes it almost twice as fast than the PM9B1 SSD. Read speed refers how fast the drive can access files, while write speed refers how fast a file can be “written” or saved. The following table is a comparison. Samsung 990 ProTechRadar has rated the XL a very high score with a sequential read/write speed of 7,465.79MB/s (and 6,887.68.19MB/s respectively). Although the PM9C1a may be slower, it is still very fast for an engine designed for everyday use. It is not a top-of-the-line model.
As noted, energy efficiency has improved over the PM9B1. It’s now 70% more [efficient]Per watt, the previous one. Samsung gives the example that a laptop with an SSD will use “about 10 percent” less power when it goes into “standby”.
Security is also enhanced because the PM9C1a will be able to support the Device Identifier Composition Engine security level, or DICE as it is commonly known. This will allow the drive to “securely” communicate with the internet. [generate] cryptographic keys” as a way to provide device authentication. They are supposed to protect the computer from supply chain attacks and firmware manipulation by bad actors.
Availability is pending
The PM9C1a is still in development so it may take some time before it is released. The announcement does not include any information about a release or price, although we have reached out Samsung for clarification. We do know that SSDs come in three models depending on their storage capacity and sizes. The 22mm x 30mm form factor for the 256GB drive is 22mm x 30, the 22mmx42mm form factor for the 512GB drive is 22mmx42mm, and the 22mmx80mm largest option for the 1TB SSD is 22mmx80mm.
It may be awhile before SSDs are found in PCs but you can be sure that eventually they will. The best ultrabook laptopsIn the market.
