Samsung's Newest NAND Chips Rock 8Gb Stuffed Into 30nm
Today Samsung announced that it is sampling new single-level-cell NAND flash modules for smartphones. The latest chips offer 8 Gigabits (not Gigabytes) of storage using 30-nanometer processes. The new chips are smaller, faster (read/write speeds average 70Mbps), and more efficient than their predecessors. They will be available in volume by the end of the month.
