Samsung says SSD memory is just fine, quit talking about it


There are some shady rumors going around that SSD memory might be sketchy. The rumors say that after 100,000 writes, the RAM starts to fail. Not so, says Samsung’s Michael Yang. He wants you to know that it might start to fail after 100,000 writes to every single cell in the chip, something that would be virtually impossible.

Truly, SSD is the memory format of the future. Less power hungry, lighter, and with no moving parts to break, it will be the hard drive for laptops of the future, with some, like a variant of the MacBook Air, already featuring the technology.
