Samsung start producing more sophisticated NAND flash memory


Samsung has announced that it’s beginning to churn out more sophisticated NAND flash memory. This  flash memory uses a new 70 nanometre process technology, smaller than the previous 90 nanometre industry standard. What does this mean in the real world? Well, it means that Samsung will be able to get 60% more memory from one wafer, and that we can expect to see NAND flash memory prices half, and memory card prices fall a fifth in price by the end of this year alone, analysts say. A good excuse at the end of the year for a new digital camera, methinks.
