Samsung first with 'stacked' V-NAND memory for mobile devices

0. phoneArena 06 Aug 2013, 05:45 posted on

After 10 years of research, Samsung has invented a "stacked" NAND flash chip coming in up to 128 GB capacities. These are to go into SSDs this year, and mobile devices like phones and tablets as soon as 2014...

It says 128 Gb in the press release, not 128 GB. 128 Gb = 16 GB.

128 Gb (not GB) means 128 Gigabits, not 128 Gigabytes.

128 Gb = 16 GB (Gigabytes). Same goes for terabit (Tb) conversion. Basically, the capacity is much smaller than what this article incorrectly interprets.

well i think that most people wouldnt notice that Gb, GB difference at first most would assume its a gigabyte not a gigabit

They're even less likely to notice when the author write it wrong and the press release most don't read anyways is hidden. It should be expected that the writers of a tech site know the difference between GB and Gb.

someone was whining about SD slots, that day is not far when internal memory would be everything you need

Everyone has different needs and I, for instance carry around my micro SD cards everywhere. The fact that they can be used AND reused in a variety of devices is extremely helpful for me. But I do agree, at some point the slots in phones could become obsolete.

faulty advertising

exciting only to people that dont know the difference between GB and Gb

1Gb = 0.125GB
128Gb = 16GB
1000Gb = 125GB

PA please change the title

"Samsung’s new V-NAND offers a 128 gigabit (Gb)..."

Samsung’s new V-NAND offers a 128 gigabit (Gb) density in a single chip, utilizing the company’s proprietary vertical cell structure based on 3D Charge Trap Flash (CTF) technology and vertical interconnect process technology to link the 3D cell array. By applying both of these technologies, Samsung’s 3D V-NAND is able to provide over twice the scaling of 20nm-class* planar NAND flash. - See more at:http://global.samsungtomorrow.com/?p=26510#sthash.QOwoFclW.dpuf

learn to read before you start insulting people

phonearena made a mistake

go to the source and you will see for yourself that it says Gb NOT GB

Thank you I was about to insult him for being ignorant and commenting without reading it first, yes Daniel P. from PA wrote it and made a mistake he should fix it otherwise losing credibility, seriously post an article but get your facts straight 128 Gigabits, is not impressive now the 1Terabit was bound to happen after apple released the 128gb iPad, so not surprising, I hope prices still stay the same

The 16 GB can have up to 24 stacked layers......therefore it still creates a lot of space and is still exciting.

Devices start at 128GB? Yeah right, they will have standard flash memory staring at 32 or even 16. This v-ram will be a premium option.

Starts at 128Gb(gigabits) and up to 1Tb(terabits) according to samsung press release which means 16GB (gigabytes) and up to 128GB(gigabytes) of course PA failed to proof read their own article and left it as is instead of fixing the error.
