Most probably, yes. But I wouldn't know where to begin to compare the
ecological footprint of a (small) semiconductor chip (or two?) plus
bonding, packaging and connector with that of one big polycarbonate
disk (plus some magic dyes) plus the amortized cost for a drive.

My hunch is that those chips are fairly expensive, ecologically, but
where's the tipping point?
