It seems that Toshiba will be introducing their first ever SSD that uses 96-layer 3D NAND flash memory in the form of the new Toshiba XG6.

Toshiba XG6 NVMe SSD

The new Toshiba XG6 features a PCI Express Gen3 x 4Lane and NVM Express 1.3a interface. With a combo of the company’s fourth generation BiCS FLASH memory technology and SLC cache, it delivers write performance of up to 2960 MB/s.

In addition to that, it delivers performance of up to 3180 MB/s sequential read, up to 355,000 random read and 365,000 random write IOPS.

Besides performance, it is also superior to its predecessor, the XG5 series in efficiency. It uses a maximum of 4.7W in active mode and 3mW during stand-by in the lowest power mode.

The new Toshiba XG6 will be available in three capacities; 256GB, 512GB, and 1024GB, where all of them comes on a single-sided M.2 2280-S2 form factor. Self-encrypting drive (SED) models supporting TCG Opal Version 2.01 will also be offered.

Pricing and availability is yet to be confirmed here in Malaysia.

Pokdepinion: Personally, I don’t think I know anyone that uses a Toshiba SSD. I wonder why is that so.. Anyways, we will update more on the product if it does come here to Malaysia. Till then, stay tuned.
