What if you developed a disc or Solid-State drive that has not as many bit storage, BUT, each were 100 :) ?

100 1bit
10,000 2bits
1,000,000 3bits
100,000,000 4bits
10,000,000,000 5bits
1,000,000,000,000 6bits
100,000,000,000,000 7bits

Maybe not that fast, but has massive storage. More than 2TB!

2TB
=
16,000,000,000,000 bits!

wait miscalculation...
2 bits is 4 combos.....eh....

Ok so, my 2TB disc has say 50 bits....

50bits=1,125,899,906,842,624 combos
50bits=1 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 combos

funny thing is every bit in this new idea gives you 2 0s; 00......binary however gives you a new 2 digits every ~7 bits.....1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 16384

Meaning,
20 bits
1,000,000 combos.......1 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000
6 0s VS 40 0s
Above I showed for 50 bits it was 15 digits VS 100 digits.....
6.666666666666667 greater always!



So....
50bits=1,125,899,906,842,624
50bits=1 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000

30bits=1,073,741,824
30bits=1 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000

20bits=1,000,000
20bits=1 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000 0000000000

10bits=1,024
10bits=1 0000000000 0000000000



So....By the time ordinary bits reach 100 0s, it would take 330 bits because that's 33 3-digits it adds on per 10 bits. But for this 100 bit drive it is just 50 bits....6.666666666666667 less storage. Not impressed, hmmm

At this rate, it'd take 300GB to make us a 2TB drive.
