BitMicro Says 6.5 TB SSDs On The Way

Los Angeles (CA) - While most people would be happy just to own a solid state drive, BitMicro says it can now make SSDs with an amazing 6.5 TB of capacity. At the Siggraph trade show held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, a company representative told TG Daily that the custom made drives can have up to 55,000 input/output instructions per second (IOPS) and can have sustained transfers of up to 230 MB/sec.

The custom drive probably won’t fit in your average desktop because the rep added that it’s about two to three times high as a regular drive. Thankfully the company continues to mass produce drop-in SSD replacements for laptops and desktops. BitMicro’s E-Disk Altima line comes in a variety of connections including SATA, SCSI or Fibre Channel.

    w\ something like a 6.5tb ssd drive, if you have to ask how much it is you obviously couldn't afford it.

    I think lots of us would take up case modding to get one of those to fit.

    I wish they would give in inkling of a pricetag though. Do i need a 2nd mortage? or just a fat CC bill?

    I just wonder if these drives do really exist. I mean I read a lot of press release these days and the problem is we don't have a way of verifying if these indeed are true.
