Sometimes I like to browse around ye oldde interwebs and see where flash tech has been, is at, and where people *think* it is going.

nteresting to look at what some of the big names in flash a few years ago and compare to what is actually happening:

http://community.cadence.com/cadence_blogs_8/b/ii/archive/2012/08/26/flash-memory-panelists-challenge-conventional-thinking-about-nand-and-ssds


also, this was 1-april, but I believe no april fools post. http://www.datacenterknowledge.com/archives/2015/04/01/intel-micron-new-3d-nand-flash-triples-memory-capacity/
Quote:
Intel and Micron announced availability of new 3D NAND Flash memory they developed jointly with up to three times the capacity of existing flash technology.

Quote:
... This allows creation of gum-stick-size SSDs with more than 3.5TB of storage, or regular 2.5 inch SSDs with over 10TB of capacity.

Quote:
... hypothesizes that the “lifetime cost of flash will fall 50-fold from $470 per terabyte today to $9 per terabyte in 2020.”

Quote:
Intel says the 256Gb MLC version of 3D NAND is sampling with select partners today, and the 384Gb TLC design will be sampling later this spring.

Even if this is really a new tech, I'll be suspicious for a while like I always am when I see a small device storing much data :p
