IBM Lays Claim to Cheaper, Faster Memory

IBM is developing a type of memory that it says could one day be faster and more reliable than today's hard drives and flash memory.

Called "racetrack," it is a solid-state memory that aims to combine the best attributes of flash, like having no moving parts, and the low cost of hard drives for an inexpensive form of nonvolatile memory that will be stable and durable, said Stuart Parkin, an IBM Fellow.

The story is too old to be commented.

The technology is very promising. as a Silicon Villain i'm excited because is being developed here in Silicon valley.

the technology could pretty much allow for several gigabits of storage to be used as ram since the first prototypes showed that although it failed fairly quickly.

in my humble opinion this technology could make the future consoles disc drive free.
