Transitioning from 2D to 3D NAND TLC 64-Layer

3D NAND TLC 64-Layer Technology

Intel® is the first company to market the new 3D NAND 64-Layer technology. The technology behind this is just as it sounds - 64 layers of storage stacked on top of each other. Intel®'s 3D NAND uses a 'floating gate' architecture, which is manufactured on a high-volume process. This architecture is capable of the best areal density and provides room for scalability in the future. It works by using a smaller cell size and placing control logic under the memory array. By having better areal density, Intel® can scale to larger capacities by delivering more gigabytes per wafer. As a result of this innovative technology Intel®® can produce Solid State Drives with capacities that go all the way up to 16TB. While those capacity numbers do not set any new benchmarks, the price to performance ratio is the key advantage of the technology. The Intel®'s 3D NAND TLC 64-Layer technology architecture delivers consistently more performance, uses less power, and offers more reliability over time. Overall, a cost effective and technological upgrade that does everything right.

Intel® Optane™ with 3D-XPoint Technology - Ground breaking flash memory innovation powered by Intel®

Intel®'s latest innovation is the 3D-XPoint Flash technology, which is exclusively available in Intel®'s Optane SSD product range. 3D-XPoint is a unique constellation of advanced materials with a cross point structure that resembles a three dimensional chess board and does not include a single transistor. In terms of structure and memory 3D-XPoint draws parallels between 3D-NAND and SLC (single layer cell) technology. The structure consists of multiple layers of flash cells while being able to store one bit per cell. Just like a skyscraper can shelter more people in comparison to a single story house, so too can a 3D-NAND flash cell store more data than a 2D flash cell.

Moreover, 3D-XPoint functions as a cache system for your primary storage drive, storing necessary data, similarly to RAM, but holding on to the data between restarts. The booting of programmes and software is as fast as a DRAM while at the same time having the feature of saving data permanently like a SSD and HDD. In essence, 3D-XPoint offers the best of both technologies: Permanent storage (non-volatile memory) and fast working memory (volatile memory).
