Fixstars reveals 6TB 2.5-inch SSD Fixstars has unveiled the world's first 2.5-inch 6TB SSD, the largest capacity drive in that form factor.
The company says the Fixstars SSD-6000M will use 15nm flash memory and have read speeds of 540MB/s and write speeds of up to 520MB/s for sequential access.

Satoshi Miki, the CEO of Fixstars Corporation, noted: "The unparalleled performance of our previous model's (The SSD-3000M) sequential I/O helped propel our SSDs and garner lots of attention. Since many of our customers desire even greater capacity, I am excited to offer a new solution and grow the product line with the inclusion of the larger SSD-6000M. Since our SSD's capacity is now able to compete with high-end hard drives, we feel our product can draw the attention of data centers as well."

The drive is expected to ship in July, with an unknown price tag.

This is where we say goodbye to spinning disk drives, their heat and noise, and unacceptably high failure rates and loss of data. Now, let the price competition begin for super large capacity SSD's

If it doesn't have a 10 year warranty, I'm not interested.
