The NAND chips are built on a 30nm process and use 3-bit per cell MLC technology. The 3-bit design offers up to 50% more efficient data storage compared to the 2-bit NAND chips commonly used today.

Samsung reports that the new NAND chips will be first used in USB drives and in microSD cards for data storage. There is no word on when we can expect to see products using the new NAND on the market.
