Hopping the flash stepping stones to DIMM future

Stoke the atom furnaces

Thanks for the Memory (article)

Great article!

I guess at some point larger on chip CPU SRAM caches and low latency high bandwidth Flash based non-volatile storage combine to make DRAM redundant for many low end systems.

I still wonder though why the DIMMs fitted to current high end machines have not yet dumped DRAM in favour of SRAM. For applications that are not so sensitive to price and power consumption (a high end gaming rig for example) the lower latency of the SRAM would give a useful performance boost.
