The size of SSDs are ramping up at a dizzying pace, and Samsung is intensifying the race with its highest-capacity 32TB SSD.

Samsung’s SSD — which will ship next year — has just over twice the capacity of the company’s PM1663a SSD, which shipped in March.

The 32TB SSD doesn’t match the capacity of Seagate’s recently announced 60TB drive, but it is denser. The drives are being shown at the Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, California, this week.

Samsung’s SSD can fit in smaller 2.5-inch slots, while Seagate’s 60TB drive fits in 3.5-inch slots. Samsung could have made a higher capacity SSD for 3.5-inch slots, but the company backs the smaller drive slots.
