[X-bit]OCZ Plans Inexpensive SSDs Based on Triple-Bit-Per-Cell NAND Flash

post #1 of 31

OCZ Technology, a major own-brand vendor of solid-state drives, said that triple-cell-per-bit (TLC) NAND flash memory could be used for solid-state drives. In fact, the company plans to use the memory originally intended for temporary storage solutions (e.g. memory cards and USB flash sticks) for permanent storage devices, e.g., SSDs.

How i see it:

While they are lower quality than current SSD's they might help lower the price on MLC based SSD's though, on the other hand if they prove to be too successful other manufacturers will start focusing on TLC and end up making the general performance back a couple of generations.

Of course im no SSD wiz so feel free to ignore what i said.

I think this would be great. Why? Because i don't need 500mb/s writes and read's. All i care about is access time. .1 access time even with 100mb/sec would be a huge improvement.

So cheap SSDs with really low endurance? Huh.

Hopefully it will at least push the average price of SSD's at their targeted capacities down a bit.

SSD's aren't that expensive now but if prices were cut in half it would be a lot better IMO

SSD Endurance has been going down with every generation. This can't help that trend...

So what makes SSDs so nice then? "Ooh, I got 500mb/s read for 1 year." "Well, I got 100mb/s read for 9 on my mechanical hdd..." lol

Not an idea I like.

You usually pay lower prices for lower performance or other metrics that can be easily measured. How would you measure an ssd that is capable of 1000 writes vs 1 that is capable of 10,000 writes? You can't.

They did the same thing with the Agility 1 line and using different flash that was either Intel 50nm or Toshiba 40nm flash giving you a drive that could be faster than other agility drives.

Degradation of speed and high price is what puts off SSD's for me, until they improve in both I will stick to HDD's.
