SSD tech : existing since 1991
We all know about the unique SSD technology in computers which has become not hidden from everyone, its most important features some of which are available in Kingston 240GB and other types. It is the most popular technology at the present time, which has become more sought after in the market than before.
We may always receive developments late and we do not know the reasons for this , I am sure that everyone does not know that the first SSD tech storage disk was launched in 1991 by SanDisk , which was famous for making accessories with the highest specifications since ancient times.
In this article, I will present a comprehensive description of SSD tech , which is a magic touch for all pc’s in the world and is famous for many qualities needed by all consumers in the world of desktop and laptop computers. that:
- Affordable price.
- Long lasting without malfunctions.
- Wide spread with a good reputation in the market.
The difference between SSD tech and HDD
SSD tech is one of the multiple storage means for computers, and it is a sophisticated technology that relies in its structure on integrated circuit stores, which in turn do not need a circular disk and also do not contain data reading heads. Which HDD can’t do, as it hardly exceeds 120 MB, read and write at best.
The mechanical disk HDD does not provide a unique experience while dealing with multiple data processing, and it is very poor performance when more than one process of reading and writing data occurs, and this has been clearly shown when the development of computer operating systems such as Windows, Mac or Linux.
As the processing queues open very large while the computer is running, which forces the HDD to stop working at times or to lower reading and writing performance and high temperature, and thus a significant and significant decrease in computer performance even if it has a high specification processor.
As you know, the HDD has a magnetic disk with a read and write indicator, and it cannot control the operating system manager in data processing, or even cannot provide good performance for a professional computer user, and this led to a decrease in performance and a lack of demand for HDD disks in the market.
There is something that confuses many about the quality of the SSD tech in running games. In fact, from my personal experience, the HDD and the SSD do not have any differences between them in running games except in one issue, which is the speed of transferring game files from the storage disk to the RAM memory, and this you will notice only when you run the game i.e. The game starts with the first 10 seconds of running time.
There is one of the secrets of the superiority of SSD disks over HDD disks and machines, which is that HDD disks have only one index for reading and writing, but SSD disks have dozens of indicators and the reason for this is the integrated circuit system in order to function as stores that are accessed through multiple and many threads at the same time by means of a microcontroller It directs commands to and from RAM and the processor.
The matter is complicated electronically, but the basics and addresses are clear about the mechanism of SSD storage media, and there remains an important matter for HDD disks, which are the cheap prices in high storage spaces that SSD disks do not provide, which means that most servers and data rooms in the world still work with HDD disks, and there are also media Dedicated data storage containing at least 5 HDDs of up to 32TB like Synology rack for example.
But in my opinion, HDD technology will not be extinct, but will remain with larger areas and lower price, and you can rely on it as a secondary storage medium that lasts long and does not fill with data because of its huge area and the closest analogy to it is the Pentium processors from Intel, where it is still until now despite the presence of core i7 and others of modern architecture.
The first SSD tech in 1991
SSD memory was not discovered before, and its first actual appearance was via USB flash drives, which were produced by Fujio MASUKA of Toshiba Corporation in 1980, but SanDisk saw an idea and a future vision of replacing and converting hard disks from magnetic memory to integrated circuit memory. The reason for this is the superior capabilities of USB at the time.
SanDisk saw SSD technology as the only alternative to hard disks, and this was done by launching the first patent that enabled them to build the first storage disk in 1991, and its space was not large at that time due to the limited capabilities of computers, as it was only 20 megabytes for $ 1000!!.
SSD technology was not directed to computers at the time, as it was more present in military systems, which required disks capable of withstanding high temperatures and intense vibrations, so SSD tech was one of the monopolized systems that were often hidden from consumers in general.
Developments followed one after another in flash memory in general, where the first SSD tech storage disk with an area of up to 18 GB was introduced, which was manufactured by BIT MICRO in 1999 and a few years later the first disk with an area of 320 GB was launched in 2007, which was equipped with the latest technologies that It was able to perform 100,000 input and output operations per second, and that was a great development in the history of the Fusion-IO manufacturer.
- SSD technology is one of the best proprietary technologies that have been missed in the market, as it has received a lot of consumer support for its survival so that they can improve the performance of their worn out computers, even new ones.
- SSD Tech consists of integrated and printed circuits, which are the safest in storing data, as they last for a long time, unlike magnetic disks HDD, which often get damaged after a few years of use.
- SSDs have been widely used in military console hardware and it’s a technology that is not new but has been revealed to consumers all of a sudden.
