Hi Capacity Flash Drives Near End Of Development

Quote:
Samsung will start producing 16 gigabit Nand Flash chips this year, nudging the memory technology towards use in notebook PCs and maybe even edging out hard drives in some products in the next few years. Nand Flash is currently in products such as USB drives and digital cameras in capacities of up to 8GB. But increases in capacity will see it rival hard disks and DVDs as a medium for mass storage.
16 Gigabit ( /8 = 2 Gigabyte) a chip thats pretty immense any who just bought a nano should watch out for the next mac conference

"and one more thing...

old nanos are now as useful as 8 track playas beatch"

using these new chips it would be possible to make a 16 GB Nano

Theres one thing wrong with using it for gaming, or even as a hard drive, flash has a limited number of writes, and it starts to die off once you get near the limit, so at the moment, its pointless.

the life cycle on current flash ram is bout 20000 read/writes using such a disk to LOAD a game/os to ram would be viable obs not for r/w thats y the swapfile would be a stabndard hdd (hey with systems og 1bg ram and up the swapfile is becomming redundant
