The new method involves larger flash chips, stacking them on top of one another, which will provide better efficiency, lower costs, which will all trickle down to the consumer. Using the M.2 PCIe form factor, we can expect 3.5TB SSDs using the 2.5-inch standard, but 10TB drives are not far away, too.

 

Micron's VP of Memory Technology and Solutions, Brian Shirley, has teased that this 3D NAND technology will create fundamental shifts in the market, with the depth of the impact that flash has had to date just a tease of what is to come. Intel has chimed in, saying that it has plans to ship products using this technology in the second half of 2015.
