It’s the 6000M SSD that’s the most interesting, though. It will use 15nm flash memory to offer 6TB of storage while retaining the 2.5-inch drive footprint. Read speeds are expected to be 540MB/s and write speeds of 520MB/s, which is typical of any high-end 6Gbps SATA SSD today.

The drive in question will be made by Fixstars. It’s 1TB counterpart will retail for $820 so I shudder to think what the 6TB version will cost.

If you’re still using a hard drive, I’d highly recommend you switch to flash storage though. The lower storage capacity ones are pretty affordable these days and you’ll see a huge performance increase both generally and for Creative Cloud apps
