SSDs are about to get quicker (and last longer)

Buckle up!   :)

A Japanese research team uses a write algorithm that can be added to existing drives to get past performance bottlenecks...

In a simulation, the research team confirmed that the new technology improves the writing speed of SSD by up to 300% and reduces power consumption by up to 60% and the number of write/erase cycles by up to 55%, increasing product life. Because, with the new method, it is not necessary to make any changes to NAND flash memory, and the method is completed within the middleware, it can be applied to existing SSDs as it is.
