Terrific news. I'm hopeful that in the next year we'll see the fruits of this work. Not just from SK Hynix, but from everyone working on next generation NAND right now. Any chance that we'll see a SATA SSD match or beat the Samsung 850 EVO with this new technology?

So this being good for power users is dependent on better controllers coming into being too, right?

"There is a 20% increase in NAND-to-controller speeds, too." Is this speaking specifically to latency?
I'm thankfully in between needing storage, so I'm cautiously optimistic that in the next 2-3 years the products available to new system builders will be going in the right direction.
