Toshiba say SSDs will be cheaper than HDDs by 2025

Over the past few years SSD performance has risen and costs have plummeted. Now according to Toshiba SSDs will be cheaper than HDDs by 2025.



Read more on the decreasing cost of SSDs here.

2025 surely by then a whole new technology would have replaced SSD's

That will depend on what you mean by new technology. I don't see anything coming along and replacing NAND memory as a storage medium (Especially given the speed of Samsung's v-NAND).

The same is that ATM new SSDs are not getting their full potential due to the limitations of SATA. We really need SATA 4 or something, yes m.2 is great, but how may of thise slows can be on one motherboard (not many). Right now all that really differentiates most SSDs is 3/GB.

I don't know, think about how much technology has advanced in the Last decade. I remember being excited about my new 256gb pixel pipe graphics card and Athlon X2 and 1 gig of ram and 120gb ide hard drive and gaming at 640x480 was a challenge

to be fair most things progress allong fast, but hard disks havent really kept up with everything els.
SSD's are going to be arround for a while IMO. people can talk about liquid data storage and so on. but i dont think anything will replace SSD's for a long time..

But they really should have been main stream a long time ago imo..
people have been using CF cards on amigas as hard disks for AGES.

but 2025 does seem a bit pesamistic in terms of cost drops i would have expected 2019 to be a more relistic crossover point.

Well I would like to think SSD's would have atleast replaced mechanical disks by 2025 as the high capacity storage medium.

I think hard drives have been a bit slower as they were not really considered a bottleneck in systems but as time as gone on new operating systems have been developed larger files, games, music, HD video's ect have become the new medium and now hard drives access times and read/write speeds have become more important and had more money invested in development.

I don't think SSD will totally replace mechanical, simply because an SSD fails there is a good chance you lose all data, where as a mechanical you can get it back most of the time

That's pretty irrelevant to be fair outside of enterprise servers. If you had any sense you would back everything up to an external drive. That's really the only thing they are good for these days but even then external drives are very expensive compared to internal.

I agree and nowadays online storage is the new thing I have 120gb of online storage for £5 a month and it backs up automatically so that removes the need for mechanical drives as backups

It's still recommended to have 2 onsite backups and one offsite for an optimum safety net.
How are you able to back up to such a small space? Just the OS?
