SSD breakthrough means 300% speed boost, 60% less power usage... even on old drives

A breakthrough has been made in SSD technology that could mean drastic performance increases due to the overcoming of one of the major issues in the memory type. Currently, data cannot be directly overwritten onto the NAND chips used in the devices. Files must be written to a clean area of the drive whilst the old area is formatted. This eventually causes fragmented data and lowers the drive's life and performance over time.... [continue reading here]

Source article after sifting through all the source links (it's a good idea to do this when stuff like this comes out, because if the source trail ends up cold, take it with a grain of salt). Also, the articles were playing telephone, the speed increase is up to 300% in simulations.

However, it's not really clear how they say it works. My guess is that every time new data is written, it fills up pages not being used so that when GC comes around, it copies less blocks.
