Adata XPG SX950 SSD Review
We've been disappointed with the new SATA SSDs over the last several years. Samsung has essentially ruled the SSD market and sets the tone by manipulating the price of the 850 EVO. Every other company plays catch-up and bases pricing on how their SSDs compare to the EVO. We hoped Micron's 3D NAND would turn the tide, but early SSDs with the technology fell flat.

The ADATA XPG GAMMIX S10 (512GB) SSD Review: Entry-Level NVMe With Style
The ADATA XPG GAMMIX S10 is a M.2 NVMe SSD with very enthusiast-oriented branding and packaging, but it isn't even close to being ADATA's top NVMe SSD. Instead, it's a derivative of their entry-level XPG SX7000 M.2 NVMe SSD, adding only a heatspreader. Underneath, the SX7000 and the GAMMIX S10 both use Micron 32-layer 3D TLC NAND with the Silicon Motion SM2260 controller. This combination is also used in the Intel SSD 600p, which has been one of the cheapest NVMe SSDs on the market.

Using turnkey solutions like this is by far the easiest and least risky way for a brand to ship SSDs, but it leaves very little room for product differentiation.

Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X 750GB Review - In the Flesh

Intel had their reasons for this unorthodox review method, but we were satisfied that everything was done above board. Intel even went as far as walking me over to the very server that we would be remoting into for testing. Despite this, there were still a few skeptics out there, and today we can put all of that to bed.

Micron unveils insanely fast 9200 PCIe NVMe SSD series with up to 11TB capacity
Solid state drives are all the rage nowadays, but as fast as they are, they don't often compare to mechanical hard drives from a capacity standpoint. Heck, my pricey MacBook Pro came with a very fast NVMe drive, but with a mere 256GB of storage. This is quite paltry when cheap laptops using a HDD can often exceed four times that capacity. Of course, there is a big speed tradeoff, making the smaller capacity preferable to some. It stinks that many consumers have to choose between a fast yet small SSD or a slow and roomy HDD.

LiteOn Intros CV6 Series Value SATA SSDs
Following up on its CA3 NVMe SSD series launch from earlier this month, LiteOn introduced the new CV6 line of value SSDs featuring the SATA 6 Gbps interface. The drives come in 7 mm-thick 2.5-inch, and M.2-2280 form-factors (M-key), taking advantage of SATA 6 Gbps interface. The drives combine a Marvell 88SS1074 controller with Toshiba-made 3D TLC NAND flash memory. The controller features LDPC gen 3 error correction, and SLC caching, a feature with which it treats a small portion of the TLC NAND flash as SLC, juggling hot data in and out of it for more performance.

New material helps record data with light
Russian physicists with their colleagues from Europe through changing the light parameters, learned to generate quasiparticles - excitons, which were fully controllable and also helped to record information at room temperature. These particles act as a transitional form between photons and electrons so the researchers believe that with excitons, they will be able to create compact optoelectronic devices for rapid recording and processing an optical signal. the proposed method is based on use of a special class of materials called metal-organic frameworks.

No Relief for DRAM and NAND Shortages in Sight; Considerable Supply Only in 2018
DRAM prices have been high for quite some time now, due to a general increased demand over a slowly improving supply capability from manufacturers. Pricing of DRAM has been increasing (to the tune that if I wanted to double my memory capacity, I would have to pay double of what I paid a mere 11 months ago.) NAND pricing has been affected as well, with newer technologies such as 3D NAND not having a relevant impact on end user pricing as was expected, since tight supply and growing demand means process-level savings are dwarfed by the increasing prices on the balance of supply and demand.

The Intel 600p and MyDigitalSSD BPX already set the tone with the speedy NVMe interface at close-to-SATA pricing. These products currently contend with high-performance SATA SSDs, like the Samsung 850 Pro. In October we will begin to see NVMe SSDs matching mainstream SATA SSD pricing, and many of those value-optimized SSDs will ship with the upcoming Phison PS5008-E8 controller.

Samsung launches 'Portable SSD T5' with USB-C and up to 2TB storage capacity
Portable solid state drives are better than mechanical hard drives for a few reasons. Obviously they are faster, but more importantly, they are more durable, as there are no moving parts. For those that travel a lot, for instance, a portable SSD is a safer product for throwing in a bag. Another big benefit is size -- modern portable SSDs are getting quite small, meaning they take up less room on a desk or in a backpack.
