Intel has teamed up with the company Micron, known for the production of memory chips NAND and DRAM. Together, the companies plan to significantly increase the volume of commercially available solid-state drives (SSD). Especially for this special technology was developed 3D NAND, allowing to store on a single chip up to 256 GB of data in MLC mode and up to 384 GB data in TLC.

Here we should recall what these abbreviations are not all familiar. SSDs today can be divided into three categories: SLC – single-layer memory (each floating gate transistor stores 1 bit of information), MLC – multi-cell memory (2 bits per transistor) and TLC – three-layer memory (3 bits per transistor ). Technology TLC yet not widespread in the world, but gradually it will replace its predecessor, as it usually happens in the world of computer components.

The increase in storage density reduces the size of chips, which automatically leads to an increase in the volume of solid-state drives. Intel and Micron claim that very soon they will be able to present to the world a 2.5-inch drive of up to 10 terabytes. The existing solid-state drives have a maximum volume of 1-1.5 terabytes. Reduced SSDs for Ultrabooks, according to Intel, will be smaller than the plate gum, but it can hold up to 3.5 terabytes of data. SSD for ultrabooks today usually do not exceed a level of 512 GB.

Memory, created by technology 3D NAND, has already proved its efficiency and effectiveness. Chip volume 256 Gb passed all the necessary tests and chips in volume 384 Gb will be tested by the end of spring 2015. Both versions of the memory should enter production later this year and appear as a drive on store shelves in early 2016.
