This Samsung SSD Runs at a Blistering 3,000MB/s

If you think your SSD is speedy, think again: this new Samsung SSD is capable of reading data at a frankly obscene 3000MB/s.

Sadly, there are some caveats. First up, it won't run with a normal SATA-6 port-instead, it requires a PCIe hook-up. Second, it's actually intended for enterprise customers. But hey, we all do business, right? Right.

While prices currently aren't known, the obvious downside to it being enterprise-only for now is that it will be super, super expensive, even if you do manage to lay your hands on one. If you do manage to get one, it'll come in either 400GB, 800GB and 1.6TB flavor. And then you can sit and transfer files and goggle at the progress bar zipping by. Then do it again. And again. And...

Getting hands-on

So we know that the Samsung A8 is packed with some great specs and costs Rs 32,500. But how does it really feel? We get some hands-on time with the device to find out.
The device immediately feels light at just 151 grams, though it also does feel sturdy. The 5.7in display leaves very little bezel, just 2.5mm of it, which gives the A8 a premium look. The home button is also a finger print sensor that activates on touch, rather than swipe.
