A few weeks back, we took a look at a new series of solid state drives from Crucial, the M550, which leveraged Marvell controller technology, 20nm MLC NAND flash memory, and firmware optimizations gleaned from the last couple of years of SATA SSD advancements. Ultimately, we found the M550 series of drives to be solid offerings, with well-rounded performance and competitive pricing. Well, today, another major player—ADATA—is releasing its own family of drives featuring similar technology at its core. The brand new ADATA SP920 Premiere Pro family of drives we’ll be showing you...

Process technologies continue to shrink at an alarming rate. It wasn't long ago that 65nm seemed tiny, and now Intel is shipping out NAND Flash based around 25nm. In short, shrinking the production size enables manufacturers to squeeze more memory, power, etc. onto an existing form factor. In other words, CPU sockets and DIMM slots won't change sizes very often, so the goal is to simply put more onto the modules we have. IM Flash Technologies, which is a joint venture between Intel and Micron that is targeted for producing NAND flash memory, announced in late January that they were working hard... Read more...
