Samsung has something to be happy about this Monday morning. The Seoul-based company is the first in the world to produce 20-nanometer class, MLC NAND chips for SD cards and other memory solutions.
The 20-nm class NAND flash memory is 50% more productive and 30% faster than the 30-nm class series. With a speed-class rating of 10, the 20-nm series boasts a read speed of 20MB/s and writes at 10MB/s. Samsung also promises this set to be more secure and reliable than previous classes.
The technology is being incorporated into SD card samples for now and will be given a wider release later this year. Samsung is introducing the series with a 32GB capacity, with more densities to follow from 4GB to 64GB.
