Toshiba Announces Availability of 19 nm NAND SSDs

Toshiba announced that its new family of THNSH Solid State Drives will be built on the company's 19 mm Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND technology and will include the world's smallest and highest density NAND flash drives. The drives will be available in capacities from 60 GB to 512 GB in both 2.5" and mSATA form factors and will include Toshiba's Quadruple Swing-By Code (QSBC) data protection and error correction technology.

According to the company, the THNSN series family "addresses the storage, performance and power efficiency demands of even the most data-intensive and energy-sensitive systems. The drives are ideal for high-end notebooks, tablets, PCs, all-in-one desktop computers and industrial PCs."

    Featuring 0,5 erase cycles / cell? Shrinkage isn't always a good thing when it comes to nand's

    ideal for everything... marketing nonsense. I could give a rats @$$ about the "19 mm" unless that translates to drives that cost 1/4 the current price of SSDs

    Basically they're saying - if it has a micro, throw one of these in there....yeah, not much detail - just marketing hype.

    Am I the only person that saw how massive this flash is 19 mm wish 19,000,000 nm insanity I say do I have a room that I can fit a 512GB SSD into at that size. It's a million times larger than many of its competitors.

    Joking aside you might want to fix that abbreviation.

    No mention o0f write endurance, it can't be good. I am surprised that they are offering smaller than 240Gig drives considering the write endurance problem at this feature size.
