SandForce First To Pair 24nm Toshiba NAND With Own Controllers (FMS 2011)
At Flash Media Summit 2011, SandForce was the first to show off 24nm Toshiba MLC NAND working with their existing SATA 6.0Gb/s SF-2000 processor. As flash manufacturers continue to shrink existing NAND sizes, having compatibility means more options and ultimately lower prices for buyers.
Toshiba NAND is cropping up in quite a few SandForce SSDs lately, especially high performance models like the new OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G, OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS, and the Patriot Wildfire... all of which use their very fast 3xnm toggle NAND. Needless to say, expect to see more flash options in upcoming SandForce-powered drives, besides the current toggle, synchronous, and asynchronous options already the market.
