Today’s SSDs use NAND flash. In a few years the situation might be different. Western Digital subsidiary HGST is apparently making progress in the field of Phase Change Memory (PCM).
It looks like the ubiquitous NAND Flash memory is about to get some serious competition in the near future from Phase Change Memory (PCM), according to researchers from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). They have built PCIe SSD prototypes called Moneta and Onyx based on PCM modules that delivers truly astonishing performance compared […]
