Because it's promised to bring the flash new Flash memory straight to consumer SSDs for our home rigs. Competitor, Micron, on the other hand, recently announced its own new 232-layer memory will be limited to enterprise machines on launch. Basically, the common folk's memory solution is set to be more impressive than what the corpos will be packing. Enter the world's first 512Gb (that's gigabit, not gigabyte) triple level cell (TLC) 4D NAND flash memory—coming right to our desks some time in early 2023.
