Samsung announced this week that it has started production of the new 128 GB 3 bit multi level cell (MLC) NAND memory chips, using the 10 nm process. This is a boost of both flash memory for mobile devices and SSDs for PCs.


The South Korean company will produce new chips that will aid in achieving the highest density single layer memory to date. This new NAND chip allows Samsung to be placed on the top of the storage food chain and promote the evolution of storage capacities in something other than HDDs. High density memory is certainly the future and I wouldn’t be surprised if the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Tab 3 series had 128 GB versions of its devices.

The 128 GB NAND chips will allow Samsung to increase production of SSDs with densities past 500 GB. Samsung wants to hurry the transition from hard drives to SSDs, that will make ultrabooks even thinner. I wonder if this technology was already out there, since Apple already has a 128 GB iPad…
