Intel and Micron in NAND flash breakthrough

Darren Allan

February 1, 2010

In a joint venture, Intel and Micron have announced they are about to reveal the world’s first 25nm NAND flash technology.

What does this mean? For computers, we can expect enhanced Solid State Drives, with bigger capacities possible, and hopefully somewhat cheaper prices for the consumer, too.

Smartphones and other devices such as MP3 players will also benefit from the technology, which should go into production in the next quarter.

Hopefully we’ll be seeing some price cuts across the field, and 320GB or possibly even larger SSDs.

“Hmm… Solid State Drives,” as Homer Simpson might comment.
