2017 should be an interesting year for a lot of things... Hopefully it pans out well for SSD pricing and capacity, as well as competition on the CPU and GPU front (unrelated to this article, other than the 2017 target.)

Thanks for sharing, that was an interesting read.. I wonder if endurance is an issue since each cell is so much smaller? Failing that, it may be price-fixing between competitors (which is illegal but sometimes happens).. It is surprising that nobody has brought this to market yet (that I am aware of) which makes me think its either leaving out critical issues/problems (e.g. endurance) or it is a conspiracy by market leaders to keep the pricing at current high-margin levels.

Sooner or later, if the technology actually delivers on its promises, someone will get greedy and undercut everyone else and flood the market with these.
