We’ve just posted the following news: Micron: 3D Xpoint memory 1000x faster and 4-5x more expensive than NAND[newsimage]http://www.myce.com/wp-content/images_posts/2015/07/imft-3dxpoint2-95x75.png[/newsimage]

Micron today announced 3D XPoint memory will be 4-5 times more expensive than NAND memory. The technology, also known as Intel Optane, promises to be more than 1000 times faster than NAND.

By 2018 the technology should become more mainstream and by 2019 3D XPoint should see its breakthrough.
By 2018, I’ll still be using an old-fashioned hard drive. I’m sure there will be plenty of other individuals using HDDs by then, too.

IHMO, the best way to get people to adopt SSDs is to make them bigger (in terms of capacity), and cheaper. Also, making the SSDs last longer is another way to make them more desirable. Making them faster should be a much lower priority than it is, IMHO.

Prices have come down, i got my first Corsair 64GB back in 2011 (If i’m not mistaken) and back then it cost me +100 euros, now with that amount of I can get a 480-512GB SSD, and much faster, better firmware support, better warranty and also TRIM that works, plus the new OS can handle much better the new SSDs.

I am afraid that it will take a long time before we see +4TB SSDs priced very close to mechanical drives, so if its 2018 that prices drop more I will be very happy, even more if could have an SSD that is 1TB and cost little mote than 100 euros.
