Samsung unveils its first ZNS solid state drive

Published

on

Samsung Electronics today announced the PM1731a Enterprise Solid State Drive with Zoned Namespace (ZNS) technology. This technology maximizes the user-available capacity and the lifespan of the SSD.

ZNS allows you to group data based on usage and frequency of access and store it sequentially in independent zones on an SSD. By eliminating the need to move and organize data, ZNS SSDs can dramatically reduce the number of writes by lowering the write gain (WAF) of the drive, defined as the number of actual writes performed by the drive compared to the writes originally assigned by the host system. The closer the WAF is to one, the more efficiently the SSD is used and the longer it will last.

In the case of Samsung’s new SSD with ZNS, the WAF is close to one, which is a significant improvement over the standard server SSDs of three to four. The service life is extended to the same extent. In addition, users have access to the entire capacity of the solid state drive, since there is no need to reserve disk space.

The 2.5-inch PM1731a drives, which use Samsung’s sixth-generation V-NAND flash, will be available in 2TB and 4TB sizes. They will get two ports each for constant availability and minimizing downtime.

Samsung plans to start mass production of ZNS SSDs in the second half of the year.

But Intel only managed to release competitors for the Threadripper

AMD is indeed going to launch Ryzen Threadripper 7000 processors in the second half of this year. Previously, these were just rumors and leaks, and now this was announced by an Asus representative.

But Intel only managed to release competitors for the Threadripper 5000. Asus confirms that the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 will be released in the second half of the year

Interestingly, he mentioned this in a video demonstrating the work of the Intel Sapphire Rapids WS platform, the processors of which are currently competing with the Threadripper 5000, but soon they will have to compete with the Threadripper 7000.

Threadripper 7000 will switch to a new socket and a new Zen 4 architecture. This will bring them support for DDR5 memory, probably PCIe 5.0 interface. In addition, the top-end Threadripper 7000s are expected to be 96-core, just like their sister Epyc Genoa.

JetStream are back Palit GeForce RTX 4080 and 4070 Ti

Palit returns to the production of JetStream video cards. More than two years after the release of the GeForce RTX 3070 JetStream, the company introduced the GeForce RTX 4080 and 4070 Ti JetStream. These models differ from analogues in the absence of RGB backlighting.

At one time, manufacturers of various hardware were so carried away by the introduction of backlighting into everything that is possible that now its absence is already perceived as a “trick”. On the other hand, the frequencies here are completely standard, and from this point of view, the lack of backlight is more of a savings factor.

Video cards look almost the same – and rather modestly. However, they are long – 329 mm (after all, there are three fans) and rather thick (they take up 3.1 slots). It is possible that dual-fan models will also appear in the JetStream series, but already based on the GeForce RTX 4070 or GeForce RTX 4060. The cost of new products has not yet been announced.
