WD Touts 3D NAND That's 60% Faster, 50% Higher Capacity

Kioxia and WD Unveil World’s Fastest 3D NAND Flash Memory

Posted on

Kioxia and Western Digital have revealed their jointly developed 8th Generation BiCS 3D NAND memory device featuring 218 active layers. The new IC boasts a record-breaking 3200 MT/s interface speed that will allow developers to build high-performance storage subsystems (such as the industry’s fastest client SSDs) using fewer 3D NAND chips. To enable a 3200 MT/s I/O, the two companies took a page from YMTC’s Xtacking book. 

The first 8th Generation BiCS 3D TLC NAND device introduced this week features a 1Tb (128GB) capacity, a four-plane architecture to maximize internal parallelism and performance, and a 3200 MT/s interface speed (which will provide a peak sequential read/write speed of 400 MB/s). Kioxia and Western Digital are the first 3D NAND makers in the world to unveil a flash memory IC with a 3200 MT/s I/O, leapfrogging competitors by 33%.
