    $400/TB
    So, it's aimed at commercial / enterprise level only then. Shame there isn't really a consumer level drive with these capacities for a reasonable price per TB.

    50Tb would be nice, I could turn my server into a NUC build rather than an iTX build..

    Well, 5 years ago 1TB was about $400 now it's around $90 or so.

    That's no guarantee of future costs or future capacities though. The biggest contributor to capacity has been even higher multi-cell which is a pretty direct trade-off versus endurance. Not sure how many more layers they can add and of course, more layers means a longer (slower) process.

    As for prices? Well nobody really knows. We know that silicon fabs costs $billions to make so have to be run for long term returns. However, there have been times in the past where a price war has had them all making losses for sometimes a few years at a time.

    Apparently Micron's costs and efficiency are rather low, while Samsung's are super efficient so they could go for a price war. However, with the American's being super protectionist that's probably not a good idea. So no below cost selling any time soon.
