    Any idea if this will have an impact on performance?

    Are MLC chips still slower than SLC?

    In general, roughly the same performance under read, but slower under write. Also, the number of times you can write to the cell before it stops working dramatically decreases with the number of bits it stores.

    These 3bit cells will allow for more spare area at *no extra cost* in available storage won't they ?

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Yes, it's likely to slow performance down further, but you get more capacity for less money.

    Which is definitely where one branch of the market needs to be going - if only for durability/power benefits. Plus it will soon get to the point where SSDs will fit more capacity in the 2.5" form factor than HDDs, naturally at higher cost for some time, but people will then start to buy them for the *highest* capacity drives regardless of the premium.

    [quote-article]
    Intel is declaring that the 64Gb (8GB) device is the smallest and highest-capacity chip currently available. However, some of you may remember Hynix started mass-producing smaller, 20nm chips just a few weeks ago. So how can Intel claim to have the capacity-crown?
    [/quote]

    The article linked to in this article only states that Hynix are making 20nm class NAND. i.e. it could be anything from 20nm to 29nm NAND and you can bet your bottom dollar that if they were producing 25nm or smaller flash, they'd be making that crystal clear.
