A process shrink to 10nm wasn't enough for Samsung, they also doubled the density of their MLC flash storage to 128Gbits at a physical size of 170.6mm2. They claim write speeds of up to 18MB/sec and 400Mbit/s bandwidth through their toggle interface. Even better news for consumers is that this should be even cheaper than current MLC flash which will help continue to drive the price of SSDs down. Samsung didn't tell The Inquirer when we can expect to see these in devices but it should not be too long from now that we are doing longevity testing on this new Flash.
"MEMORY MAKER Samsung has announced that it is producing 128Gbit 3-bit multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash chips for solid-state disk (SSD) drives"
