I don't understand this secrecy about X, Y, Z...what exactly is 15nm is always debatable (which dimension you measure and how) so we might as well say as it doesn't mean much anyways...perhaps they are trying to borrow a page from the Apple book, let's be mysterious

At the Q4 2012 earnings call, Sandisk CFO did in fact mention that they would get less cost improvement from 1Y nm (probably because it's from quadruple patterning) than from 19 nm in 2013, but they are still proceeding regardless. http://seekingalpha.com/article/1129411-sandisk-management-discusses-q4-2012-results-earnings-call-transcript?part=single

Actually 1Y is still 19. http://www.sandisk.com/about-sandisk/press-room/press-releases/2013/sandisk-advances-its-industry-leading-manufacturing-technology/

At this rate, silly for them to do 1Z shrink, with 3D expansion immediately after.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
