Counter Strike: Samsung began production of three-dimensional NAND chips in peak volume

Sometimes, all you need is a small push in the right direction: a few days after Toshiba-SanDisk revealed that they would soon start producing serial chips (The market leader and the unit that has been producing 3D chips serially for nearly two years) came out with a counter-announcement and announced that they had already started mass production of V- 3-D in the same volume.

Samsung's new chips are based on the 48 layer of TLC transistors - properties that are identical to Toshiba-SanDisk (although the road is a bit different for each), and are a practical doubling of the 3D and planar chip volumes available so far, 128 Gigabit Based on 32 Layers. Samsung also claims that the new 3D chips offer up to 50 savings in power consumption compared to V-chips. And are also cheaper to manufacture naturally (due to the savings in silicon on the way to the same volume including).

The first products that will be based on this new and third generation of V-NAND technology will probably only appear at the beginning of 2016, but when that happens we will see drives In 2 volumes, terabytes become a new standard in the 2.5-inch category, while volumes of one terabyte as an option for the M.2 drives for more compact systems. It remains to be hoped that not only the volume growth, but also the price cut, will reach the customers at the end of the chain.

  1. In both the previous article and the article here there is no reference to the matter so I will ask…
    Is the reduction in production reflected in a decrease in the price of GB per bull?
    Because today prices are about 30 cents per GB.
    An 2TB drive at this price doesn't really help us if it costs 500, 600 dollars….
    It's not enough to become mainstream.

  2. SSD prices are declining all the time, and at the moment the pace has slowed down and will be quite uniform. This trend is expected to continue just like any other chip technology.
    Beyond that, I believe SSD prices are not high because of direct manufacturing costs. Their prices are due to other factors such as cost of R&D, factory training etc. But more than that, even if the SSD drive would cost a quarter of what it really costs the price in my opinion would not go down. It is a centralized market where companies have no interest in dropping the price down, they are They all maintain similar prices and some similar price declines to maximize profits.

  3. To jackhammer (Jacob the bitter?) - they will not apply such a price that no one will buy.

  4. If the 1TB and 2TB SSDs were to cost $ 200, then mechanical drives would no longer be needed for most home users.
    Of course, anyone who wants more storage for large files would add some mechanical drives….
    But as long as it costs 800 dollars it remains a product of some niche in the market.

  5. The new technology will drive down prices, that's exactly the point.
    We talked about the fact that in the future, when it will be mainstream - it will not come out that way.

  6. For a change it looks like good news.
    Unlike all the other talk that ultimately does not change the engineered staircase where SSD prices are falling,
    Massive competition for high-volume 3D chips may lead to a sharper volume / hold growth path.
