Good read. Does not bode well for the future of SSDs though.

Thank you for the great article.

solarmystic, don't worry they will find a solution. I'm sure scientists and inventors have met thousands of problems during inventing a new product, they solve them and they don't tell us about them. The flash industry is so big and vast ( think of mobile devices alone) that a lot of money and research will be pumped in to solve whatever problems they meet.

Interesting series of articles, thanks.

SSDs will eventually be replaced with smaller, faster, devices that use less power.
Will be interesting to see what it is.

Why are they still worried by Moore's Law, a law that was written years ago and they are trying their hardest to apply it years into the furure. I mean the world won't end if the number of transistors in a microchip doubled after three or four years instead of two.

Here's a link to an article ( I hope it's still there ) that says that Moors law is already Collapsing

Hiyya BB nice article mate hows the weather up there?

Yep I know where things are going take a look at this -

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1288158.html
have been watching articles like this for some time now and remember they were talking about transistors being built around organic molecules but now this so these shouldn't be that far away given the rate of development we have had over the last decade or so.

Oops forgot one other ref http://www.nature.com/nnano/journal/...o.2012.21.html

Hi there
I already have a TINY micro sdHc card in my phone (32GB) and a 64 GB one will surely appear sooner or later.

Whether these can replace SSD's yet is a moot point -- but the way to the future is clear --tiny vast storage arrays -- what need for "Cloud Cuckoo Land" -- when we can have maybe several PETABYTES of storage spread out over the size of a few old fashioned postage stamps.

That doesn't mean to say don't get an SSD-- in today's REAL technology they are very much still worth it -- anybody who's used one even an (or maybe specially on) an older machine will say why on earth didn't they get one sooner.

It's almost impossible to convey the difference between spinners and an SSD to people who have never tried one.

I'm not going back to spinners for my OS etc -- even on my laptop I can store all my external stuff on external USB disks or storage sticks so the 120GB SSD I have isn't a limitation on the laptop.

Cheers
jimbo

Jimbo, what's your SSD capacity? Actually, not just Jimbo but anyone else. Gonna get one real soon, trying to figure out what to put on there because I can't replace all my HDDs with SSDs just yet.

I've got a 120GB, two partitions with OS installed on both. All apps, page file, etc on the SSD, hibernation disabled.
Use spinners for data, storage.
