Micron's enterprise MLC NAND boosts endurance by 600%

  1. Micron has unveiled what it says is the industry's highest endurance multi-level cell (MLC) and single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory. Micron is aiming its new 34nm flash technology at large companies that may be interested in doling out for a performance boost in I/O-intensive applications without sacrificing the longevity of hard disk drives.

  2. Nonsense. In 2003, SLC was good for 1,000,000 cycles, and when MLS was introduced is was good for 100,000 cycles.

    Now, after several process generations of rapid decline in endurance and performance, Micron improves the most recent crap from 10,000 cycles to 30,000 cycles, and all of a sudden Flash's problems are solved.

    Flash gets slower and less reliable as bit density increases, and no amount of Micron/Intel propaganda will change that...
