What is 3D MLC NAND Flash Memory?

To unleash performance fit for the next generation of computers, Transcend has released its MTE850 M.2 Solid State Device (SSD), based on 3D MLC NAND flash memory. The device utilizes the PCI Express Gen3 x4 interface and supports the latest NVMe standard. According to Transcend, this SSD targets high-end applications such as gaming, digital audio and video production, and multiple uses in the enterprise. Typically, such applications demand constant processing of heavy workloads, while not willing Read more [...]

Replacement for Flash Memory

Today flash memories or thumb drives are commonly used as devices that store information even without power—nonvolatile memory. However, physicists and researchers are of the opinion that flash memory is nearing the end of its size and performance limits. Therefore, the computer industry is in search of a replacement for flash memory. For instance, the National Institute of Technology (NIST) conducted research is suggesting resistive random access memory (RRAM) as a worthy successor for the next Read more [...]

What is 3D Flash Memory?

Slowly, but steadily, the memory market is veering away from magnetic disc storage systems to solid-state drives or SSDs. Not only are prices falling fast, manufacturers are producing SSDs with improved technologies, leading to denser memories, higher reliability and lower costs. For example, Samsung has recently announced SSD and systems designs that will drive their new 3-D NAND into mass markets. Samsung's latest SSDs are the 850 EVO series. According to Jim Eliot, a marketing executive for Read more [...]
