Novachips develops SSD drives of 4 and 8 terabytes

Korean computer chip developer Novachips announced earlier this week that it successfully developed the world’s first 4 terabyte and 8 terabyte SSD drives.

The so-called hyperlinked SSD drive (HLSSD) allows users to increase their storage capacity.

Currently the SSD with the largest capacity on the market is 2 terabytes.

The HLSSD is currently available only to startups and original equipment manufacturers.

Other major global chip developers including Samsung Electronics and SanDisk have been working on the development of a 4 terabyte SSD drive.

There have been growing demands for large capacity SSD since its first debut in 2007.

Samsung announced last month that its 4 terabyte versions - SSD 850 PRO and SSD 850 EVO - will be released on the market early 2016.
