Toshiba this week announced that it has developed double data rate (DDR) Toggle Mode NAND flash memory for use in solid state drives (SSDs), and there's good reason you should care. According to Toshiba, its 32nm DDR Toggle Mode chips will significantly improve performance in both MLC- and SLC-based SSDs compared to conventional asynchronous NAND memory, while at the same time offer up lower power consumption over competing synchronous DDR NAND products. Getting down the technical nitty gritty, Toshiba claims its new chips can shuffle data around at 133 megatransfers per second (MT/s), which is more than three times the 40MT/s of current generation SLC chips. A threefold increase is nothing to... Read more...
