The PM1643 is a new serial attached SCSI (SAS) Solid State Drive. This new SSD boasts read speeds of 2100MB/s and write speeds of 1700MB/s - a significant boost compared to previous offerings - and is built from 32 sticks of 1TB NAND flash packages. Each of these sticks contains 16 layers of 512GB V-NAND chips, which offer twice the capacity of Samsung’s previous 16TB drive.
