If you need masses of storage but you like your laptop to have super-fast performance, then this new SSD may scratch your itch. With 6 terabytes of storage, this is the world’s largest capacity 2.5-inch SSD (for now).
The Fixstars SSD measures just 9.5 millimeters in thickness, and offers read speeds of up to 540 MB/s and write speeds of up to 520MB/s. Larger capacity SSDs are available, but not in this form factor. Prices aren’t yet available, but given a 1TB version costs $1,000 (£643), expect to have to dig deep into your wallet.
