New Western Digital WD SN5000 SSD series! Initial Reaction Mixed!

Western Digital has announced its new WD Blue SSD Series. The initial reaction to the announcement has generated differing opinions about the capabilities and performance of the drive. Some people have expressed concerns about the company's descriptions of the SSDs. They suggest the official product webpage may contain some advertising hype. The company claims the drive can harness Artificial Intelligence and streamline workflow with the help of Western Digital's proprietary nCache 4.0 application. Western Digital suggests users can easily switch between applications and projects thanks to the high-end NVMe storage technology. The company also claims that the new drive offers heavy-duty endurance for creative work. However, some skeptics doubt these advertising claims and argue that the new drive is not a high end SSD or a high endurance drive. A few thought the SSD was an improved PCIe 4.0 drive for cost-conscious consumers.

SK Hynix To Start Production Of GDDR7 Memory For Graphic Cards!

SK Hynix, a major memory manufacturer, plans to start production of GDDR7 memory modules in the first quarter of 2025. The manufacturer showed off 16GB and 25GB memory modules at Computex 2024. Samsung and Micron, the two other major memory manufacturers, are reportedly planning to make GDDR7 modules available before the end of this year. Graphics cards with GDDR7 memory installed could be available for purchase next Summer. However, it is also possible that Nvidia could delay incorporating GDDR7 memory. Nvidia might continue selling existing high-end chips and cards for Artificial Intelligence use and commercial data centers until profit margins decline. Simultaneously, AMD and Intel might try to capture some of the consumer market to reclaim some of their diminishing market share.

SK Hynix Prepares Giant 300TB SSD For AI

SK Hynix is promoting its upcoming SSDs, which are expected to have a massive capacity of 300 TB. These SSDs are primarily intended for AI tasks and not for regular consumers, who likely wouldn't have a need for that much storage space. The capacity of SSDs is steadily increasing, and data centers require significantly more storage capacity than what is typically found in personal devices. SK Hynix unveiled these high-capacity SSDs at a press conference in Seoul, stating that they are designed for data centers, particularly those running artificial intelligence algorithms. The company anticipates a substantial increase in data generation, with the amount of data expected to grow from 15 ZB in 2014 to 660 ZB by 2030. To accommodate this growth, storage solutions such as 100TB HDDs or the newly announced 300TB SSDs will be necessary.
