Micron makes extraordinary controllers and their MLC NANDs are pretty competitive. If this means cheaper TLC for consumers they could regain the market from Samsung

I suppose they didn't have the resources or desire to make their own controller for TLC NAND flash?

Wonder when Sandforce 3xxx SSDs will come out for SATA 3 , PCI Express

I don't know why they would try when Tidal was available. In an earning call last year a Micron engineer stated that the company was working on a controller. A company the size of Micron (Crucial, Lexar brands) would have a few teams working independently on it. That's a lot of money spent for development. There are companies out there that have shipping controllers and they are not very good. When it comes to the third party SoC makers, very few have been succesful in the high performance category. The engineers from both SandForce and LAMD were both part of successful products.
