Samsung TLC 3D V-NAND: Cheapest memory SSDs

October 13, 2014 3:09 am0 comments

Samsung has started mass production of TLC 3D V-NAND with 3-bit, a type of vertical memory stack that will open the door for the arrival of cheaper SSDs.

This will be possible thanks to the lower production cost TLC 3D V-NAND memory presents, although this has several counterparts that obviously we must consider

The first is that its performance is inferior to the MLC NAND memory with 2 bits, which means that their reading and writing speeds are a step below.

Secondly, it must be remembered that the cycle of life that provides memory TLC 3D V- NAND with 3 bits is also inferior than its 2-bit MLC namesake, which means that based on the first SSDs they will have a short shelf life.

Nevertheless it presents, as anticipated, two important advantages. One manufacturing has a higher success rate, which includes more functional chips and lower production costs.

On the other hand it facilitates the manufacturing of SSDs, while keeping more controlled prices, which can help popularize and increase the use of these storage solutions in general.
