TLC flash gets tender loving care from DensBits boffinry

Israeli upstart DensBits says it can make short-life TLC flash run longer than some long-life MLC rivals because of its fancy adaptive controller tech. TLC (three-level cell) flash stores 3-bits per cell instead of the one found in SLC (single-level cell) and the two found in MLC (multi-level cell) chips. Each additional bit …

New Intel 710: The numbers don't look good

Intel's delayed 710 SSD, its X25-E replacement, has arrived at last, after having been initially outed back in July. It's a fairly standard – for these days – 25nm, 2-bit MLC solid state drive, with 100, 200 and 300GB capacity points. But it has wildly skewed read and write performance and poor-to-average bandwidth numbers. …

Anobit brings out second generation of Genesis SSD

Anobit's second-generation Genesis solid-state drive has pretty much double the performance of its first-gen sibling. The latest Genesis is a 2.5-inch form factor SSD with either 6GB/s SATA (T series) or 6GB/s SAS (S series) interfaces. In terms of capacity, it's available in 100, 200 or 400GB, as before, but 800GB and greater …

Anobit shipping flash stash

Secretive Israeli flash controller start-up Anobit is now shipping its controller with 2-bit (we think) Hynix NAND to "a world-leading provider of mobile computing devices". Well (hint, hint), Hynix supplies Apple, iPad two is shipping ... nuff said. The controller in question is the MSP2020 and it uses Anobit's memory signal …

Anobit breaks MLC flash barrier

Israeli startup Anobit reckons it has the technology in its Genesis enterprise SSDs to make flash storage practicable for all tier one data. Flash solid state drives (SSD) are being used for the storage of the most active tier one data in storage arrays as they provide the IOPS needed without the expense of having a large …
