3D stackable phase change memory  - 3D stackable phase change memory
Mon, Apr 24 2017 | 4:00PM | Filed under: Memory| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

XPoint. Optane. QuantX. We've been hearing these terms thrown around for two years now. A form of 3D stackable phase change memory that promised 10x the density of DRAM and 1000x the speed and endurance of NAND. These were bold statements, and over the following months, we would see them misunderstood and misconstrued by many in the industry. These misconceptions were further amplified by some poor demo choices on the part of Intel (fortunately countered by some better choices made by Micron). Fortunately cooler heads prevailed as Jim Handy and other industry analysts helped explain that a 1000x improvement at the die level does not translate to the same improvement at the device level, especially when the first round of devices must comply with what will soon become a legacy method of connecting a persistent storage device to a PC.
