Toshiba Making 24nm Flash -- 8GB on Single Chip

Toshiba said that it has started mass production of NAND flash memories fabricated with 24nm process technology. This latest technology advance has already been applied to 2bit-per-cell 64-gigabit (Gb) chips that are the world's smallest and offer the highest density on a single chip (8 GB), and which are available from today.  

The 24nm process products are also equipped with Toggle DDR, which enhances data transfer speed. Toshiba will eventually add 32Gb and 3bit per cell products fabricated with the 24nm process technology to its product line-up.

Toshiba provides flash memory for smartphones, digital video cameras and tablet PCs – many of which the newer models support the recording and playback of high-definition content.

    2-4 months till trickle down and prices on second gen ssd's drop? sounds good to me cause I need about 4 of them!
  • gekko668
    SSD companies ain't going to lower the ssd price because there are too many people who are willing to pay premium for it.
  • konjiki7
    The price will drop due to the high levels of competition in this market.

    How long before we scrap the idea of an "SSD" and they just make a board that accepts an array of SD or microSD cards and RAID0/1s them all together?

    And Apple will still only offer 8GB in it's entry model iPod Touch, and way over charge for more memory without giving you the ability to just insert a MicroSD card.
  • Squiggs77 , that my friend is why not to buy iPod Touch...
