    3D QLC Woes - Manufacturers Fighting to Get Yields Above 50%

    >However, as cell design becomes more complex in a bid to increase areal density, yields have taken longer to mature. QLC on it's own does not increase complexity of a cell design. Fundamentally, a cell is exactly the same for SLC, MLC, TLC or QLC type NAND. The supporting circuits to enable...

    NAND Flash Prices Could Reach $0.08/GB in 2019

    This is not new to QLC, most TLC drives work in exactly the same matter. The only difference is that write speed is a little bit better since it has 8 less states to deal with in a given cell. If the algorithm is designed correctly to deal with this, it's a non issue for consumer workloads. I'd...

    Micron Ships Industry's First Quad-Level Cell NAND SSD

    Funny enough, SANDISK already did QLC based SD cards way back in 2009. So it's not like the flash tech is not matured (it's literally just distinguishing 16 voltage states instead of 8 or 4) but rather ssd controller support is not there yet.

    Impactics DMono is a Fanless Case Without Aluminium Ridges

    Waaay too expensive... Make it 100€ and AM4 ready and we can talk.

    AMD Provides Support for BIOS Update on 2nd Gen Ryzen - Boot Kit Available

    I'd guess a cheap bin of bristol ridge cpu and some instructions.

    Intel Core i5-8500, i5-8600 (non-K), and Celeron G49xx Listed on Newegg

    you conveniently forgot about am2+, am3+, fm1, fm2, fm2+ did you ?

    Intel Core i7 8700K Reportedly Reaches 4.8 GHz Easily, 5 GHz+ Requires Delid

    actually, neither of that is correct. The issue was defective chip substrate, where bumps inside simply disconnected. Heating the chip to 130c or so "fixed" the issue temporary. People thought it was solder, because solder melts too.

    Intel Pentium G4560 Cannibalizing Core i3 Sales, Company Effectively Kills it

    Except ryzen r3 won't be 64$ and also won't have iGPU. So a completely different market. I'll take cutdown ryzen apus to get to pentium price levels.

    Toshiba's 768 Gb 3D QLC NAND Flash to Match TLC's Program/Erase Cycles

    Thats not entirely true. Yes, you can extend NAND endurance by employing better error correction and compensation for degradation, but ultimately it's all down to quality of the actual silicon, how much cycles is going to hold up.

    Toshiba Develops World's First 4-bit Per Cell QLC NAND Flash Memory

    With 3D nand, QLC shouldn't be that big of an issue, because the actual cell is much much larger than with 2D TLC, used in recent ssds.

    AMD Radeon Pro Vega Frontier Edition Unboxed, Benchmarked

    LOL, x2 8 pin and a single blower fan. I'm sure this isn't going to be loud at all :D:D:D:D

    Toshiba Develops World's First 4-bit Per Cell QLC NAND Flash Memory

    Just fyi, this is not their first QLC flash memory. Sandisk (which shares it's fab with toshiba) had qlc sd card way back in 2009...
