You can sense the urgency with Marvell's NAND controller designers. Intel has moved on to LSI-SandForce, and OCZ has its own Everest/Kilimanjaro controller families via the Indilinx buyout. That leaves Marvell as the only performance NAND controller-maker.

Maybe he's talking about the Marvell 91XX SATA controllers and not the Marvell SSD controller that this article is talking about?
