OCZ: SSDs to overtake HDDs by 2012

OCZ CEO Ryan Petersen told FUD Zilla that he believes solid state disks will overtake hard disk drives in terms of price per gigabyte by 2012.
The manufacturing roadmaps for SSD storage devices should enable three to four bits per MCL cell in late 2011 or early 2012 and this should be the point when SSD should catch up mechanical HDD drives in storage and price.The performance is already on SSD side.

This is why Intel as well as OCZ are putting a lot of effort into this market as if this turns to be right, mechanical drives might become history in the next five to ten years.
