“The next generation of SSDs will use multilevel cell (MLC) technology, which will require a more sophisticated controller – a crucial component in solid state drives. These drives will have capacities ranging up to 128GB, 160GB, and later, 256GB. MLC drives are expected to appear in a wider selection of notebooks later this year.”
