My Continued Obsession with SSD Prices

Filed under: Uncategorized — aaronls @ 8:59 pm

Finally SSD prices have started dropping again.  A year ago prices were at $1.56 /GB, and expected to see 25nm production in place by the end of 2010.  Now some SSD’s can be seen at around $1.16/GB.  This is a mere 25% price drop, and I would have hoped that they would be closer to 40% price drop by now.  The fact that flash memory is used by mobile phones, tablets, and netbooks means that there is probably a greater demand for flash memory which may have been contributing to the slow decrease in SSD prices.
