     MLC 20nm from Intel / Micron

    Intel and Micron have just announced a new MLC Flash NAND memory chip, confirming their technological advance in the domain. With a capacity of 8 GB, this chip measures 118mm², against 167mm² for a chip engraved at 25nm. It is produced by IMFT (IM Flash Technologies), the joint venture set up by the two companies.


    This 20nm memory chip is reported to offer the same endurance as 25nm memory, and should therefore constitute the next jump in terms of price / capacity ratios for SSDs, with no known disadvantages. Currently at sample stage, this chip should enter mass production in the course of the second half of the year, a period during which IMFT is expecting to be able to sample a 16 GB chip at 20nm.


    To recap, IMFT announced its first 25nm chip in February 2010. At the time, mass production was slated to begin in the second half of the year but we've only recently started to see SSDs that use it coming onto the market. We therefore don't expect to see SSDs using this 20nm memory before the beginning 2012.



     LGA 1155 Series 6 & Ivy Bridge compatibility

    Some new screenshots of Intel documents give more detail on the compatibility of the forthcoming Ivy Bridge processor with current LGA 1155 motherboards using Intel Series 6 chipsets.


    Although compatibility has been confirmed, a bios update will be required and the Q65, Q67 and B65 platforms designed for the pro market, will not be compatible. According to our calculations this concerns the following chips:

    - Intel Z68 Express
    - Intel P67 Express
    - Intel H67 Express
    - Intel H61 Express
