Re: Re: Not buying it
I think you missed how much I loathe MLC.
In my mind it only has to compete with SLC flash and it is already comparably dense with SLC NOR.
Also, it did mention STT being stackable to 4 bits per cell area, which admittedly will cost process steps.
On the other hand, it has superior power efficiency right now which is an important factor in today's devices.
"Right now all of this is speculative and until you see a physical device that you can actually buy for cash out of your own pocket, assume it will never happen." you say?
You must have missed this fine Reg' article - http://www.channelregister.co.uk/2012/01/23/dell_lsi_mram/
"...Dell and LSI are using a new type of memory in servers, RAID controllers and routers, presaging the replacement of NAND flash.
It is a form of non-volatile memory called MRAM for Magnetic RAM. MRAM has been in development for some time and is now being used for journal memory functions by Dell and LSI, according to Everspin Technologies, an MRAM developer and manufacturer.
Everspin MRAM (Toggle MRAM) is also used as journal memory on 6 and 12Gbit/s LSI RAID controller cards and included on LSI reference designs for third party RAID cards and RAID-on-Motherboard (ROMB) products.
