Today the laughters were filled at Yellow Apron restauran in Petaling Jaya as Western Digital announced the availability of it’s latest offering, the 64-Layer 3D NAND Solid State Drives (SSD). Since the acquisition of SanDisk that happened last year, this means that the technology is also now available in SanDisk SSDs.

Being the first in the world, these SSDs deliver higher performance at even lower power consumption while offering higher capacity capabilities and endurance.
