An 8GB 25nm NAND flash chips measure just 167mm˛, making it possible to squeeze even more memory into components all across the board – from USB drives and SD cards to smartphones and SSDs. For instance, a 256GB SSD can now be produced with only 32 of Intel's 25nm chips, compared to 64 previously. We'd expect that to lower prices a bit, but Intel hasn't released any figures.
With mass production underway, electronics with the new memory should hit store shelves before the year is up, if not shortly thereafter.
