SSD trends of the Computex: TLC and M.2
PCIe instead of SATA – this trend was clearly visible at this year’s Computex in Taipei. As manufacturers are not making any progress on the speed of SATA SSDs, the future lies with the much faster PCIe SSDs like M.2. In addition, the IT fair has shown, that cheaper SSDs are now increasingly using TLC memory with 3 bits per cell.
