Does memory count? There's some very interesting information in this article:

 

Hot Chips 2016: Memory Vendors Discuss Ideas for Future Memory Tech - DDR5, Cheap HBM, & More

 

Discussed are HBM3, DDR5, and GDDR5X/GDDR6.

 

Intel Launches 3D NAND SSDs For Client And Enterprise

 

But for the grand finale, I want to pull in some older articles:

 

Good gravy, Toshiba QLC flash chips are getting closer

Toshiba flashes 100TB QLC flash drive, may go on sale within months. Really

 

That's right. After a couple of years of hearing about 3D TLC NAND non-stop... f*** it, we're doing 4 bits per cell. QLC has only been used before in some high-density SD cards. I'm sure the write endurance is very low normally, but boosting the cell size due to 3D and adding dozens of layers must make it feasible.

 

On the layer counts, Samsung is going to 64 layers for 4th generation 3D NAND. 96-128 should be possible with today's technology, and the final ITRS report predicts up to 512 layers by 2030. You can stack at least 2 64-layer dies to get to 128 layers easily, rather than constructing a die with 96+ layers.

I hate announcements that don't list real world data rates, as in GB/s

I dont think an SSD is worth it given they wear out a lot faster than a normal drive. I think the SSHD is a better solution of

speed to capacity.


I have a small YouTube channel making videos on a variety of games. Come and have look here:

Prove your statement. SSDs do not wear out fast like they might have 5 years ago.
