    Useful for storage applications, not so useful (yet) for actual RAM!

    Just seems practical for low power high storage capacity devices, say the next generation of portable memory, but that's about all

    If it is as small/fast/compact as described, could you stick these on a PCI board (until something better comes along) for a fast access hard drive? How long would the info be reliably retained without power?

    Surely it could be placed on a small mSata board and we could have 1tb SSD's?

    Hmmm.... Samsung just announced its stacking NAND - faster and up to 1TB/chip. Would love to see a toe-to-toe (inc. pricing) for 'equivalent' chips.

    Hmm, I'm a bit suspicious as this seems almost too good to be true - although there's the small matter of price. I'm suspicious that given it's only being produced by one company (at the moment?) the cost of the Crossbar memory is going to be very high.

    That said 1TB on a single chip - sounds like it could be the start of the death of HDD.

    Hexus, any chance of a head-to-head comparison?

    I wouldn't mind phones having no SD card slots if they came with 1TB storage.

    Surely this will replace SSDs and see a huge market in portables. Hurry up and validate the damn product and don't charge silly amounts!

    I don't understand this article... Is this slower or faster than say standard DDR3 1333mhz ram?

    Actually seems practical for any type of storage.

    Far slower:

    Highest Performance: 20x Faster Write than NAND
    SSD designs are only able to get 500MB/s and the like by interleaving numerous NAND chips while modest DDR3-1600 gets 12.8GB/s (that's why DDR3-1600 is also called PC3-12800).

    No, this and the other upcoming similar techs are going after the flash market at least at first.

    Confusing using RAM in the name of the product I agree, but I think this is going to be used for storage rather than as volatile RAM like kompukare says.

    This could be used as RAM for microcontrollers. For mobile/PC its natural place is storage, but it could probably also serve as backup. Disks are often used as backup, but a small, long lasting medium with high capacity would be very good for that (price would be a factor though).

    Erm no surely, all that'll happen is that we'll see Solid State Disk products using RRAM rather than NAND?

    Although someone's pointed out to me, SSD makers could replace their current NAND with RRAM and interleave to get even more speed. In which case we're definitely going to need a new interface - SATAIII is going to be completely overwhelmed.

    Although even with a generous allowance for bad cells that's something the size of our current SSD's but with 1.5TB. Definitely like that idea!
