  1. Intel and Micron are announcing today that its joint venture company, IM Flash Technologies, is ready to sample the first 25nm NAND-based flash memory technology. In fewer words, that is the smallest semi-conductor process in the world.

    Read the whole story
  2. That's madness!

    its funny that the processing power is continuing on with its own momentum but the codes that dictate the process are still as ancient as it first originated...

    This ... Is ... Intel !!!!
  5. What happens when they start approaching 0 NM? It can only get smaller for so long..

    Here is an article to read up on some of the effects if you are interested. It is a year or so old so some of the numbers are a little out of date, but they project ~10nm as being the economical limit for transistor technology.

    Someday I want to fully appreciate just how small 25 nm really is! I mean I can read about it being on a scale of 1 mile, just the first 20 inches. Or I would need 3000 of these stacked up to be as thick as one strand of human hair. But I wouldn't get just how small this is until I hold one or see it made under the microscope.

    And the talk about putting solid dtate memory directly on to motherboards bypassing SATA buses and really speeding up "disk" access sounds crazy cool. I can't wait to see that!
