Storage 785 Published by

Intel and Micron have announced 20 nanometer 128 gigabit (Gb), multilevel-cell (MLC) NAND memory that will enable SSD manufacturers to build more spacious drives at lower price points.

The chip was actually developed by IM Flash Technologies (IMFT), a joint venture between the two companies, and according to its makers is the first such device in the industry to enable a terabit (Tb) of data to be stored on a fingertip-size package by using eight such dies.

Furthermore, IMFT managed to achieve this increase in capacity without having to drop the performance of its NAND chips, which were designed to meet the ONFI 3.0 specifications.

Even though these don
