Welcome to Myce’s review of the Toshiba XG6 1024GB NVMe SSD (hereafter referred to as the Toshiba XG6).
The Toshiba XG6 is the first product to feature 96 layer, BICS Flash 3D memory, and it is expected to be become available in retail channels during Autumn 2018. Prior to this the XG6 will be supplied as an OEM product to Laptop, PC and Server suppliers. I must be getting old as it feels to me as if it was only yesterday that 32 layer 3D NAND hit the market.
Is it worth waiting for? Please read on to find out.
I was supplied with a sample product without retail packaging.
