Apple's next-gen MacBook Air is adopting a new Flash memory chip to make the device more faster.

A recent report coming from Macotakara revealed that Google will be adding a new Toggle DDR 2.0 type of NAND Flash Memory into its next MacBook Air’s SSD drive.

The new Flash memory chips, which will replace the current SSD stick format, will be mounted directly on the device’s motherboard. By this update, it is expected that Apple users will experience a much faster MacBook Air with 400Mb/s, a better performance through the new ONFI 3.0 standard, and a good device with “half the number of channels, providing both a cost and space savings”.

It’s PSBL (‘possible’) with Probabilistic Chip

A new chip, created by startup Lyric Semiconductor, promises to shrink flash memory and provide new methods for spam filtering or other processes. It utilizes "probability processing" to solve certain problems that can benefit from determining the probability of zero or one.

According to Wong, anything that goes into memory and solid state drives will need a probabilistic type of correcting errors. Meaning all NAND-based flash memory will require a more advanced signal processing in the future. But aside from the flash memory, the technology has wider applications to some computing problems. Computers recognizes data in bits (1,0) with nothing in between. Based on those binary bits, the processor will perform many of its operations serially.
