Future Memory: What Will Replace DRAM? That’s the title for the panel I was asked to sit on at last week’s MemCon 2010 event. It may seem premature to think about replacing DRAM now (we still see several generations of DRAM development ahead with a long-term home in computing systems), until you think about HW and SW design cycles. Hardware platforms for 2015, 2016, and even 2017 are being developed right now. So we need to pick the best option that’s working today and start thinking about how we’ll use it, especially if it’s not drop-in compatible.
You can watch my arguments for why PCM will be that next-generation technology in this video. It was a great discussion, one that I’m happy to continue online—please post your comments and questions below.
