By now, you’re probably familiar with the fact that the hard drive is a great storage medium, but you may not have heard the story of how that drive was made.
The technology behind that drive is still in its infancy, and while some SSDs have a similar capacity to a hard drive, it’s still a matter of years before the technology will be able to store data that’s actually larger than a regular hard drive.
That’s the drive movie, a video that explains the story behind this new hard drive’s remarkable speed.
The movie begins with the drive in storage: a new generation of SSDs from Intel and Micron have been engineered with more capacity.
That drives the speed and density of these drives at a higher speed, but also at a lower capacity, in order to improve read/write performance.
These SSDs use a technology called NAND flash, which means they’re designed to store digital data on their surfaces rather than using conventional hard drives.
They also have more capacity and speed, with a density of 8GB/s compared to the 6GB/1TB standard hard drives we’ve seen in the past.
Intel’s new generation NAND-based SSDs, which were first introduced in the Z170 chipset, have been designed to take advantage of the faster NAND density in order “to get to a larger storage capacity,” said Steve Kondik, senior director of product marketing for the Micron Technology Group.
“That translates into faster sequential read speeds of up to 7MB/s.”

The drive movie goes on to show how Intel’s NAND SSDs are being used to store videos on their NAND surfaces, which are then transferred to the new SSD.
The video storage is then compressed into a video file and sent to the server.
The compressed video file is then converted to a JPEG format for viewing on the web or a USB drive.
The hard drive also gets a quick, high-speed read.

Intel has yet to announce a price on the drive, but its current generation is set to cost $100.
Micron’s SSDs start at $180.
This is a $100 price tag that’s already well above the cost of the latest high-capacity SSDs like Samsung’s Kaby Lake and Toshiba’s Kingston series.
The movie goes onto show how Micron and Intel are working together to make these SSDs faster than their competitors.
Microns new NAND drives, for example, are designed to be “over a hundred times faster than the fastest hard drives,” said Kondick.
In other words, these SSD drives have a density that’s almost twice that of a standard hard drive — so they’re twice as fast as a high-density drive.
Microran has also added the ability to support more than one NAND type on the same SSD, which allows the drive to store more data than a standard NAND hard drive would be able.
The extra NAND capacity means these SSD’s can store more information than just a standard SSD.
In a world where we’re all using smartphones, laptops and other devices that store and read data in many different ways, that extra capacity is key.
The movie then goes on a few more pages to show off some of the new features the Microns NAND drive has to offer.
These include the ability for the drive’s memory to be accessed via USB, which makes it easier for consumers to connect a notebook or laptop to the drive.
Finally, the movie also shows off the Microrans new NUT-based caching technology, which is designed to improve the reliability of the drive when it’s performing a read-intensive operation.
