Fixstars have just introduced the largest solid state drive you can buy, containing a gargantuan 13 TB of space, but all that speedily-accessed space doesn’t come cheap.
As you probably know, SSDs are much more expensive than regular hard drives and this one will set you back around a dollar per gig, approximately £13,000 in total. The pricing could fluctuate, but apparently not by much, according to PCWorld.
Don’t think you’ll be able to find the drive on eBuyer, though – the SSD will only be available directly through Fixstars.
The 2.5-inch drive plugs into SATA 6 slots, has sequential read speeds of 580MBp, and write speeds of up to 520MBps, according to the Japanese company.
Competitors are currently trying to close the gap, withSanDisk indicating they would release 6TB and 8TB SSDs this year. Meanwhile, Samsung is lagging behind with a 4TB SSD coming later this year.
