[Toms] CeBIT: Corsair Previews SSDs Using SF-2200 - Page 2

I think it's pretty clear what we have to do. We need to use the concept of inception to plant the idea of creating a NAND-producing company into the heads of entrepreneurs everywhere. Thus we can induce innovation and vicious price wars, driving prices down :3

Unless of course they band forces and form Mega-NAND... but what are the chances of that? :X

On a side note, I paid ~$0.3125/GB for my SSD

They already spend a few billion in the last few years building fabs and ramping up production. We have had a process shrink every year recently. With smartphones and tablets, everyone knows there has been a NAND shortage.
Once again...

Yep, I'm aware of the reality of the situation. That was mainly a failed attempt at humor. I just hope that they continue to expand operations, drive down costs, and increase yields. I'd actually like to see them over expand fab capacity and meet or exceed NAND demand... at least to the point where it brings about price decreases (most likely increasing demand with it) without gravely hampering their viability. NAND is still darn expensive.

It's taking some time but they are getting cheaper. Just a couple of years ago a 64GB drive was like $300 and slower than a mechanical drive. Now you can get a 120GB drive for $250 and it wipes the floor with a mechanical drive.

So we're getting there.

Two/three years from now I'm guessing we're at about $1/GB and starting to saturate SATA 6Gb/s speeds.

Well I am sorry, but they can already do that, there are ssd's that read/write at 580mb/s which is the nearly the theoretical limit for sata 3, since the last 20mb/s is taken up by instructions between controller and drive.

That's probably when I'll next be looking to update my rig, it's crazy to think about how fast things might be by then!

Exactly what I want. I thought this is what Intel was trying with this gen but the 2 newly released models are far from that...

Okay, I stand corrected! My math was off. Looks like everyone's going to be looking to PCI-E to fix the problem by then.
