OCZ: SSD and HDD prices to reach parity within five years

Posted on Friday, November 13 2009 @ 07:22:18 CET by

OCZ CEO Ryan Petersen told X-bit Labs that he expects that in five years from now the price per gigabyte of solid state disks will almost match the price per gigabyte of hard disk drives.
At present SSDs are used in conjunction with hard drives in order to reduce boot-up time and accelerate performance of frequently used programs. However, that is going to change in the future as the price of flash will get closer to that of hard drives in terms of per gigabyte cost.

“This dual usage pairing an SSD as a boot drive with a HDD for mass storage will persist during the transition period, but as you move three to five years out the prices per gigabyte for SSDs will continue to get closer. As the delta decreases, adoption of SSDs will only increase and we will definitely see this transition in PCs,” said Ryan Petersen, chief executive officer of OCZ Technology, in a brief interview with X-bit labs.
