New PRAM 30 Times Faster than Flash

“The EETimes describes the new Samsung memory, phase-change RAM, called PRAM. Samsung is dubbing it ‘Perfect RAM’ because it is thirty times faster than NOR flash, ten times more durable — and cheaper to produce, to boot.” [from Slashdot]

My flash thumb drive is plenty fast for the things I do. What’s exciting about this is that it just might be fast enough and cheap enough to replace hard drives. No hard drives means instant hibernation, faster access, and higher reliability. Imagine a PC where the only moving part is the fan. Let’s hope it’s not a smoke and mirrors announcement.
