Silicon Motion Technology, a solid-state drive controller company, has unveiled the SM2320 single-chip model for portable external SSDs. According to the manufacturer, the SM2320 is the fastest controller of its kind.

The controller includes four channels for NAND operation and an external USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface. It provides sequential read speeds up to 2100 MB / s and sequential write speeds up to 2000 MB / s. By eliminating the separate USB bridge chip commonly used in external SSDs, it has been possible to reduce the list of drive components and reduce power consumption. The controller supports up to 4TB TLC and QLC NAND memory chips. It implements Silicon Motion NANDXtend ECC end-to-end data channel protection. In addition, security benefits include support for 256-bit AES encryption, full compliance with the Opal Trusted Computing Group (TCG) specification, and support for restricting access using a fingerprint sensor.

In less than a year, the situation on the video cards and processors market may improve. The head of AMD spoke about the shortage of chips

Published

AMD CEO Lisa Su expressed her opinion on the duration of the chip shortage. According to her statement, in the first half of 2022, the supply is likely to still be limited.

But already in the second half of next year, the shortage of microcircuits will not be as acute as it is now. How much the situation will change, the head of AMD did not predict, but her vision is still better than that of a number of other specialists who predict improvement only in 2023.

It should be understood that AMD itself does not produce semiconductors, so we are talking about improving the situation in general, which will affect not only AMD, but all other companies as well.

In general, so far most forecasts agree that the situation with the deficit will improve at least in the second half of 2022 or at the beginning of 2023, but no one undertakes to predict when the situation will completely return to normal.
