Micron's smaller NAND chips mean more, faster flash memory in the same old enclosures

Micron's smaller NAND chips mean more, faster flash memory in the same old enclosures

Micron's smaller NAND chips mean more, faster flash memory in the same old enclosuresNeed a little more proof that Intel's got some fly SSDs about ready to roll? We have confirmation from Micron that it's working on new and improved 34nm chips in capacities of 8, 16, and 32Gb. These lovelies are 17 percent smaller than the previous rainbow colored flash delights, and are faster too, offering 200Mb/s transfer speeds and when combined into an SSD, able to keep up with SATA 6Gb/s transfers. This press release confirms the chips will show up in flash memory from Lexar, but we're guessing that official Intel announcement can't be far off now.
