IBM has come out with RAM that has data running along a path no larger than a human hair. The result is very very fast RAM. IBM researchers are suggesting that this technology could be available in around a decade and could enable users to store substantially more data at a lower cost. It also will be able to use much less energy because of it’s size. If you ask me, (and nobody ever does so I just talk anyway) ten years is too long cause there will be something even better by that time, I’m guessing. Still, new and faster technology is always welcome.
IBM’s new racetrack memory, makes old RAM seem like another elderly driver.
