Re: how 3D?

Toshiba introduced some stacked flash chips last year using TSVs, so it is possible Samsung is doing this also but I don't really know. They may be stacked traditionally, the main benefit is performance but that's irrelevant when this is slowed down by the SATA interface anyway. It also helps a little with power but that's not a huge concern with flash.
