Neat, now if only they can do so with a low price range xD.
Just think of the next generation of flash drives and SSDs using this new chip.
This will also make mobile storage go way up too.
Amazing. That's just mind blowing.
that is one beastly little thing.
It doesn't mean a thing unless it's available to us to use and for a decent price.
So I'll take a 4TB SSD drive with this flash memory inside of it please. In fact, I want 12 of them.
Stick a bunch of those on a PCIE card and I will gladly beta test the card :P lol. Pretty amazing what they are able to do reducing the size of these components all the time.
Each decrease in manufacturing size brings with it a reduction of cost, as well as an increase in capacity. After all it means they can make more chips with the same amount of resources and fit more in the same amount of space.
Though there are other factors for final price, but SSDs are definitely well on their way to becoming increasing more affordable and more dominant in the market.
What I want to know is how many write cycles it can handle before going bad. That number has been dropping with every die shrink.
The new technology is amazing, and helpful, but I wish they would focus a little bit more on storage size. This solid state stuff has been pretty expensive for awhile now.
Holy crap thats a large capacity for a small thing
