128 gb on the tip of your finger

 Intel and Micron have jointly developed the first 128GB multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash device using 20-nanometer NAND process technology, the two companies announced Tuesday. IM Flash Technologies, an Intel and Micron joint development venture, has also begun mass production of a 20nm 64GB NAND device.

Eight of the new 128GB storage modules can fit into a fingertip-sized package (pictured) that can store up to a terabyte of data, according to Intel and Micron. The two companies said such packages will be used in tablets, smartphones, solid state drives (SSDs), and other high-performance compute devices.
