Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book have certainly made an impression with techies everywhere. Some really heavy-duty users may feel a little constrained by the top-end option for 512GB of flash storage, though, and Microsoft is addressing that issue with a 1TB storage option.
[Updated] Second EMC exec departure revealed this week.
Yesterday, we covered Seagate's 8TB and 10TB hard drives. Fixstars probably saw that news and thought "psh, we can go bigger without moving parts." Enter the 13TB SSD-13000M and its "smaller" cousin, the 10TB SSD-10000M. The company isn't new to the large SSD game, either. It released...
Seagate's 8TB NAS hard drive isn't the biggest thing going in mechanical storage today. The company has also announced a 10TB version of its Enterprise Capacity 3.5" drive. This data-center-oriented drive puts seven platters and 14 heads under helium to reduce friction and turbulence.
Seagate has updated its lineup of NAS-oriented hard drives. The NAS family now welcomes its newest and biggest member, a drive with an impressive data capacity of 8TB. The company calls the new drive the "largest NAS-optimized drive on the market," and says it's...
CES - More than a handful of SSD manufacturers have released drives built around Silicon Motion's SM2246EN controller, including Mushkin and its Reactor 1TB SSD. An updated SM2246EN now supports 3D NAND and drive capacities up to 2TB, and Mushkin is using that updated controller to expand the...
Mushkin's ECO family of solid-state drives has been known primarily for being budget-friendly. With its new ECO3 drives, it looks like Mushkin is sticking with that formula. This time around, the company is dropping the smaller 60GB and 120GB offerings. ECO3 drives will only ship in 240GB and 480GB...
We're heartened to see the diverse range of PCIe SSDs on offer at CES this year, and OCZ has one of its own in the works. The M.2 RevoDrive 400 ticks all of the boxes we want to see in high-end PCIe flash storage. We get NVMe support, four lanes...
Kingston announced several new products today, two of them designed for enterprise applications. First up is the KC400 solid-state drive, the latest addition to the SSDNow family. Like all SSDs, the KC400 is much faster than mechanical storage, but Kingston emphasizes reliability more than raw...
SanDisk is presenting a variety of storage products at CES this week. The first is a new SSD in the company's portable series aimed at photographers and videographers, called the Extreme 510 Portable SSD.  SanDisk Extreme 510 Portable SSD SanDisk dubs this as an "all-terrain" storage...
Silicon Motion's flash controllers have been a popular choice for manufacturers of solid-state drives, like Crucial's budget BX100. Today, Silicon Motion announced a new SATA SSD controller—the SM2246EN—that will support 3D NAND flash chips from multiple vendors. Potentially, this controller could...
CES - We met with Zotac this morning to see what the company has in store for 2016. We got a look at the company's full line of graphics cards, Zbox mini-PCs, and storage options, along with a couple products that are still in development.
Consumer-grade PCIe SSDs have mostly been a two-player game for a while, with Intel and Samsung drives being the primary choices for most enthusiasts.  Now, US-based Patriot Memory is joining the party with its Hellfire PCIe SSDs, available in both M.2 and add-in card flavors. The Hellfire M.2 SSD...
Samsung's T1 portable SSD put up to a terabyte of the company's 3D V-NAND flash in a pocketable, featherweight drive with a USB interface. The company tells us that consumer response to the T1 was quite positive, and it says it experienced strong demand for the drive.  After a...

Transcend might not be the most common name in the consumer SSD arena, but the Taiwanese company has an extensive portfolio of flash storage products nonetheless. The company is expanding that portfolio today with an interesting technology it's calling "SuperMLC" NAND. According to Transcend,...
Plextor plans to show off a new PCIe solid-state drive at CES next week. According to PCWorld, Plextor’s M8Pe drive takes advantage of a four-lane PCIe 3.0 interface and the NVMe protocol to offer 4KB random reads up to 270,000 IOPS and 4KB writes up to 150,000 IOPS. Plextor...
If you remember our Samsung SM951 SSD review, you may recall how that drive encountred thermal throttling under sustained workloads. Likewise, AnandTech questioned whether similar throttling behavior might have occurred with the Samsung 950 Pro in its review. Those questions can only be answered by...
