Mushkin cautions in an official announcement today that they're still not entirely sold on adopting 25nm NAND chips in their SSD products. According to the manufacturer:
"While the process reduction to 25nm reduces cost both for manufacturers and consumers, there are intrinsic drawbacks to the 25nm which give rise to problems that have not yet been solved. Because of the manner in which 25nm NAND chips interact with controllers, capacity is noticeably reduced. In addition, 25nm chips have far fewer available program erase cycles, thereby reducing endurance of SSDs with 25nm NAND."
In short, Mushkin will be sticking to using 34nm flash memory chips for their SSD products until they're convinced the industry can get around any reduced-capacity issues which may potentially affect the newer 25nm chips.
