New Memory Chips 1000x Faster
The technology, which they’re calling 3D XPoint, also has 1000 times higher endurance and is 100 times denser, so it can store more data than conventional memory storage.
It’s the first new type of memory technology to come along in more than 25 years, the companies said.
The technology is intended to give processors faster access to giant sets of data on a variety of computing devices.
“It is a fundamental game changer,” said Rob Crooke, GM of Intel’s non-volatile memory solutions group said. “It will enable us to scale computing even further.”
