It was time for me to upgrade my old workstation, so I decided to build something custom as I couldn’t find what I was really looking for from a major manufacturer, for the price I wanted anyways.
3D NAND Flash Memory
On 3/26/2015, Intel Corporation and Micron Technology, Inc. posted a press release touting their new 3D NAND Flash Memory.
In short, what this means is that they have created a new way to create higher density solid state memory… 3D Memory! They boast that this increases capacity by 3x and that boost of capacity comes along with a “significant cost savings, low power usage and high performance.”
- New technology that uses floating gate cells – 3x capacity than other production methods
- Enambles the creation of smaller form factor devices with large storage – 2.5″ SSDs with greater than 10TB
- New processes and techniques that will extend Moore’s Law for flash storage
- Expected to increase both performance and endurance of the storage
