This is the world’s largest capacity 2.5-inch SSD
The latest version that has been developed is that of a 6 terabytes SSD card by Fixstars. In addition to a large storage capacity, the card is equipped with up to 540 MB/s of read speed and 520 MB/s of write speed, which makes it the most powerful 2.5-inch SSD currently available.
The SSD is not yet available on the market, and an exact price has not been announced. However, a similar version of the SSD card that is currently available, which only has 1 TB of storage, sells for $1000 so it is likely this card will be pricey.
