Next-gen NAND demoed in SandForce SSDs
The biggest benefit of this next-generation NAND should be lower prices. The smaller the dies, the more can be squeezed onto a single wafer. With SSDs already slipping below the dollar-per-gigabyte threshold, we could be in for some real bargains later this year. According to SandForce, the 19- and 20-nm NAND will enter mass production in a “very short amount of time.” Drives shouldn’t be too far behind.
While we had SandForce cornered, we asked about its future plans. New products are coming, and they’ll stick with Serial ATA until 2013. PCI Express is the future, though, and we should see SandForce controllers break away from SATA next year.
