Price is Right

Get ready for a price adjustment. Affordable SSD’s will soon be on the way. JMicron’s new NAND flash controller could cut prices of solid state drives in half. The JMF612 chip design suits the current generation of flash chips utilizing smaller process geometries. The new chips are smaller, faster, and most importantly cheaper to manufacture. Intel and Micron are working on building 34nm NAND flash chips while Samsung and Toshiba are following closely behind. The cheap controller board combined with newer higher density flash memory add up to a widely affordable storage unit by late Fall. Look for many data centers to convert to solid state technology later this year. (link)
