Samsung’s previously highest capacity SSDs could reach up to 32 TB. However, now with the 61.44 TB capacity PM1743 model, it has reached a level to compete with other companies like Solidgm and Western Digital, which generally serve corporate customers.

It also has a capacity of 1.6 million random reads and 110 thousand random IOPS. The product has proven to withstand daily 0.26 write operations for 5 years even under heavy use.

The new SSD is available in U.2 and PCIe 4.0 x4 formats for server use. It also features a PCIe 5.0 x4 interface for higher density machines. No information on the price or power consumption of the SSD has been provided yet.
