.Samsung Electronics Announces High-Performance PC SSD that takes Everyday Computing and Gaming to a New Level the PM9C1a, a high-performance PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD, has been declared ready for production. The PM9C1a will boost computing and gaming performance in PCs and laptops by integrating a new controller based on Samsung’s cutting-edge 5-nanometer (nm) process and seventh-generation V-NAND technology.
According to Yong Ho Song, Executive Vice President of Memory Solution Product & Development at Samsung Electronics, “Our new PM9C1a SSD will deliver a robust combination of superior performance, greater power efficiency, and increased security, which are the qualities that matter most to PC users.” “These are the qualities that matter most to PC users.” As we continue to advance innovation in the PC SSD space, we are committed to developing storage that meets the diverse and shifting needs of the market.
Know more about PM9C1a SSD
The PM9C1a SSD is ideal for everyday use as well as more demanding computing and gaming applications due to its top-tier speeds. The Samsung PM9C1a, which makes use of the PCIe 4.0 interface, has a sequential read speed that is 6,000 megabytes per second (MB/s) and a sequential write speed that is 1.8 times faster than Samsung’s previous storage product, the PM9B1. Random read and write speeds can also accommodate up to 1,000K and 900K input/output operations per second (IOPS, respectively).
Additionally, the PM9C1a has a power efficiency per watt that is up to 70% higher than its predecessor. As a result, the new SSD requires significantly less power to perform the same number of tasks. Furthermore, the SSD will consume approximately 10% less energy when a notebook PC enters standby mode.
The PM9C1a has strong security to meet the growing demand for more robust security measures. The Trusted Computing Group (TCG), is a global organization that develops open standards for computing security. And developed the Device Identifier Composition Engine (DICE) security standard supported by the SSD.
DICE provides device authentication to guard against supply chain attacks. In this cyberattacks target businesses through vulnerabilities in their supplier network. Attestation to prevent any firmware tampering. DICE securely generates cryptographic keys within the SSD.
Lastly, in an M.2 form factor (22mm x 30mm, 22mm x 42mm, 22mm x 80mm). Samsung’s PM9C1a SSDs will be available in storage capacities of 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
