Phison to Showcase PS5013-E13T BGA SSD: Up to 1.7 GB/s At Under 2 Wby Anton Shilov on August 2, 2019 1:00 PM EST
Phison said this week that it will demonstrate its next generation turnkey BGA SSD at the 2019 Flash Memory Summit next week. The tiny drive uses a 324-ball BGA packaging, and promises to be faster than its BGA predecessor while consuming around half the power.
The Phison PS5013-E13T 1113 BGA SSDs come in 128 GB and 256 GB configurations, use a PCIe 3.0 x2 interface, and iare rated for up to 1.7 GB/s sequential read speeds as well as up to 1.1 GB/s sequential write speeds (when pSLC caching is used). The drives do not use DRAM and rely on Host Memory Buffer (HMB) instead.
When compared to Phison’s current-generation PS5008-E8T BGA SSD (rated for up to 1550/950 MB/s read/write speeds), the new PS5013-E13T is not radically faster. However, its key advantage of the new one over its predecessor and existing BGA SSDs is power consumption. The new drive consumes only about 1.5 W, down from 2.9 W – 3.4 W consumed by today’s high-end BGA SSDs. Furthermore, the drive supports configurable power profiles to meet requirements of various applications.
Phison’s PS5013-E13T 1113 BGA SSDs will be available sometimes in 2020 and hopefully the company will reveal more information about the new drives at FMS next week.

bug77 - Monday, August 5, 2019 - linkYou should check what drains most of a laptop's battery first ;)
PeachNCream - Friday, August 2, 2019 - linkNeed for phone's internal storage, but please leave a microSD slot so I have a place to dump additional files. 256GB is not really enough for a mobile device these days.
Marlin1975 - Friday, August 2, 2019 - linkJesus, how many dick pics are you sending that 256gb is not enough for a phone?
azfacea - Friday, August 2, 2019 - linkwhy settle for dick pic when u can have 8k 120fps footage with HDR
jabber - Saturday, August 3, 2019 - linkI just don't get this fetish for making and carrying around masses of data. Why burden yourself with all this crap? If I see someone like that I feel pity and sick to my stomach.
Data hoarding...it's a form of mental illness.
shabby - Saturday, August 3, 2019 - linkLol data hoarding? Wtf is wrong with you.
rpg1966 - Saturday, August 3, 2019 - linkAah, the old "I don't have this requirement, so everyone else is an idiot" line of 'reasoning'.

There are way more people who want their phone to be cheap (totally unreasonable!) than people who want their phone to hold hundreds of GB of data (perfectly expected from a phone).And sales data just proves that top storage models sell way less than mid range because the vast majority of people really don't need that much storage.
Since these costs can't be passed only to you, the customer who needs the microSD slot, how do you reconcile the needs of the many vs. the wants of the few?
