It may not be just cost but also the read current performance. The V-NAND could have a better read current than the smaller silicon channel, but its vertical channel direction could easily get in the way.

Really this is a stepping stone before entering into the 3D era. This step will bring the ever required memory size increase per package as an in-between development before 3D fabrication techniques are ready for manufacturing ICs.

This "Moving to 15nm" has already happened in the equipment side a couple of years back through demo and EVAL tools or upgrade of existing ones. Now is the ramping phase.
