Samsung is going to mass produce 1 Terabyte, 2 Terabyte and 4 Terabyte SSD drives at prices that will cause a massive move to terabyte-SSDs by consumers.
I am thinking the prices need to be about $80 for 1 Terabyte, $180 for 2 Terabytes and $400 for 4 Terabytes.
Currently prices are about $220 for 1 Terabyte and $80 for 500 GB.
Samsung will also be able to efficiently produce a 128GB memory card for smartphones that will lead the charge toward higher capacities for high-performance memory storage.
The 128GB memory has to drop to about $15-20 from $40.
The 4-bit QLC SSD enables a sequential read speed of 540 MB/s and a sequential write speed of 520 MB/s, and comes with a three-year warranty.
Samsung plans to introduce several 4-bit consumer SSDs later this year with 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities in the widely used 2.5-inch form factor.
We will see in a few months what the new prices are.
