IBM Scientists Mark New Advances in Phase-Change Memory:

To hear scientists describe memory that can access data with incredible speed, retain information when powered down, and endure huge workloads, you might believe they were talking about the human brain. But these are the same features that IBM scientists have built into a relatively new kind of memory chip. It is called phase-change memory and the scientists believe that they could triple the amount of data that the memory holds. The breakthrough could lead to new advances in everything from mobile phones to the servers behind Watson, IBM’s artificial intelligence platform.

The memory become...
