Next generation flash should still deliver the same amount of performance as we see now in current 24/25nm. The biggest difference is that you can fit more flash on each wafer which will lower the total cost of the flash. Flash makes up the largest expense in consumer SSDs so major changes in price have a direct affect on the cost of ownership.
