Faster Toshiba NVMe XG6-P SSD Memory Announced

If you've bought a tablet or 2-in-1 during the last 10 years, chances are that the memory storage unit comes from either Samsung or Toshiba. This week Toshiba announced their faster new NVMe XG6-P SSD memory with a rated 30% higher write bandwidth.

That level of speed increase is significant particularly if your are running tasks that frequently reads or writes data from the memory storage unit, or if you are always transferring large files in and out of the computer. The speed of the memory can be as important as the speed and power of the processor and RAM in any tablet or 2-in-1.

The new Toshiba XG6-P SSD is based on Toshiba's 96-layer 3-bit-per-cell PCIe Gen 4 x4 / NVMe with read speeds up to 3180 MB/s and write speeds of up to 2920 MB/s.

As a SSD it's small enough to fit into tablets, as even the 2TB version M.2 XG6-P still only measures 80 x 20mm.
