Intel Doubles Capacity of Phase-Change Memory, the Next Step After Flash

Sure, its exciting to see flash memory drop in price and increase in capacity, but flash isn't the end-all-be-all. In fact, we already know what it'll be replaced by before it's even become the de facto standard: phase-change memory. And Intel just figured out how to double the capacity of phase-change memory,… »2/04/08 3:05pm2/04/08 3:05pm

New Memory is Faster, More Efficient Than Flash

Researchers have developed a new type of memory called "phase-change" that is 500 to 1,000 times faster than flash memory while using half the power. The implications are for instant-on computers with longer battery lives, instant-access to photos on your digital camera with longer battery life, and, you know, a fast… »12/11/06 11:11am12/11/06 11:11am
