Toshiba’s new Flash Chips could increase SSD capacity by 500%

Toshiba's new flash chips could increase SSD capacity by 500%

Toshiba has taken one step ahead by making the prototype of flash memory. Toshiba is the first to take a step yet. The amazing thing about this flash is that it has the most capacity among others available. 1.33 terabits will be enough to get people energized, while the general chip only gives 32GB. The new flash consists of four bits than the general chip of 3 bits per cell. This chip will be available with the 96-layer 3D NAND.


Toshiba is creating a new mark in the existing market. In this way, this new flash chip is clearing all the paths and developing new potentials for memory cards and high thick SSDs.The changes are taking place in NAND flash tech. But the prices for memory cards as well as SSDs are so high due to the limited chips.

“Market transformation is driving increased adoption of SSDs and NAND flash in traditional HDD applications,” the statement by Western Digital reads. “The change has contributed to growth in SSD/NAND flash and declining long-term demand for client HDDs. Consequently, Western Digital plans to expand SSD manufacturing in Penang. The company is in the final stages of commissioning its second SSD facility in Penang, which will go into production in the coming months.”

Western Digital also indicated improved pricing strategies. In the eyes of Engadget, this device could lift the volume of SSDs via 500 parts. At that moment, it is optimistic to consider that Toshiba’s high capacity chips will break the competition.
