That's marketing speech. In real life, the binary ordering will be like this:
0000
0001
0011
0010
0110
0111
0101
0100
1100
1101
1111
1110
1010
1011
1001
1000
The point is to only change one bit between neighboring analog levels.

Marketing would have put the binary in numerical order.

Or at least copy pasted it from the programmer who put it in numerical order.

"That means standard 3.5" HDDs are also now in the crosshairs. "

Tech sites have been saying this sort of thing for years now. Where's the reliability data for QLC tech? What about cost? Backup? etc. It's not as if rust spinner tech is standing still, likewise LTO and other developments.

"more importantly, they draw 3X less power[than a comparable HDD array], during read-centric workloads", so if a comparable HDD array draws _ power, these generate 2X_ power? P-3*P=-2*P, this doesn't sound right.
