Giblets: Micron/Crucial moving to 16nm NAND this year

While production processes are beginning to slow down on the CPU front due to increasing temperatures thanks to all those millions of transistors tightly packet together, storage-bound silicon typically doesn’t see the same issues and the jumps between different process nodes are happening much quicker than Moore’s law would ordinarily govern. We’re now down to 16-nanometer processes for Micron memory and the company says they’ll be releasing the world’s first 16-nanometer SSDs later this year, with a showing off at Computex 2014. The new silicon will make its debut in Crucial’s MX100, a consumer-bound SSD with performance somewhere between the M500 and M550 but with pricing a little cheaper than both.
