[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/[/newsimage]A research group in Japan has developed a prototype SSD that uses a combination of 1GB ReRAM and 256GB NAND to deliver up to 11 times faster writing performance compared to current NAND-only SSDs. The new prototype works in a similar way to hybrid SSD HDD drive, but where the ReRAM is used to handle small write and overwrite operations and frequent read operations.

That’s a fascinating story and there’re some really impressive statistics in there.
Regardless of cost I’m sure some organisations would be extremely interested in such a massive leap forward in speed.
Prototype. There’s that magic word, kids. How many prototype news stories have you read where the time frame from prototype to production was less than 5 or 10 years, if ever.
