Inferred to use Phison PS3112 S12 controller plus Toshiba BiCS (even BiCS3?) NAND. TBW and expected performance are decent. No real test info though.

As far as I am aware, this SATA S12 controller was only revealed days ago at Computex. If this truly contains this new controller and the benches are solid, then I'll say that this a great sign leading in a positive direction concerning the price/performance ratio of ssd's on a whole

Interesting that it's straight $100, even $110 crossed price is not that high. Good to see new drives released at sensible prices

SSDs are dropping in price like crazy. At this rate, HDDs will become obsolete soon. For regular home users anyways.

Probably not. The increased warranty period still won't persuade me to have any faith in Gigabytes costumer service

Yeah, back to the prices they were a couple years ago before they jumped up. But seems like they want to / will finally creep even lower

It's not just that. Advancements in the manufacturing process and new technology is helping to reduce cost as well. So there's a good chance prices will drop even lower in the next few years.

Noop!
three years ago. 0.5 TB SSD was under $99...
cost might be less $10 for 1/2 TB SSD... the flash chips are monopolized by bigger brothers

Did you even read the article? Here's a quote: "The retail products coming in the second half of 2018 with have a heavy impact on SSD pricing. Some estimates from engineers we've spoken with put retail pricing on track for a 20% to 30% reduction over similar-capacity products shipping today. Emerging technologies and form factors that reduce the material costs will also play a role. Toshiba Memory America showcased the new RC100 NVMe SSD that uses multi-chip packaging to cram the controller and flash in a single package."

SSD technology and their manufacturing process has clearly improved compared to 3 years ago. SSDs will become cheaper to produce. Whether or not companies choose to lower their prices accordingly, I guess we'll see.

It seems Toshiba and Samsung at least plan to lower their pricing:
