Samsung Wins Environmental Award For 860 Evo 4TB SSD
Carbon emission in terms of 512Gb 3-bit V-NAND has been reduced to less than half of 10-nanometer-class 64Gb V-NAND which were certified last year.
An 8TB SSD composed with the 512Gb V-NAND can reduce approximately 240kg CO2 of carbon emission per year compared to an 8TB SSD product composed with the 64Gb NAND, producing the same effect as planting twenty-five 30-year-old trees.
“The EPD certification will serve as an assurance to our customers that Samsung’s high-capacity products offer not only cutting-edge technology, but also certified environmental reliability. Samsung plans to begin mass production of 1Tb V-NAND in the future to lead the growth of the rapidly expanding ultrahigh-capacity storage market and strengthen its eco-friendly technology leadership.”
Mike Mang, Vice President of Brand Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung Electronics.
