Default SSDs Getting Twice The Punch!

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9215502/Intel_Micron_to_double_SSD_density_by_summer' target='_blank'>http://www.computerworld.com/s/arti...nsity_by_summer</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Intel and Micron plan to further shrink NAND circuitry, doubling the density of their flash chips and further reducing the cost of solid state drive (SSD) storage.&nbsp; IM Flash Technologies (IMFT), Intel and Micron's joint venture, released 25 nanometer (nm) circuitry a little over a year ago.&nbsp; In the next few weeks, IMFT plans to annouce 20nm NAND flash chip production."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1302203951.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Behind all that technical jargon, you should find one very important bit of information: SSDs are going to get cheaper!&nbsp; Well, I hope they will at least.&nbsp; They could always just double the capacity and maintain the same price, still keeping SSDs out of complate mainstream acceptance.&nbsp; Also, if their claims are to be believed, the shrinking of manufacturers for SSDs at this scale could mean higher prices.&nbsp; Only time will tell.</p>
