Chou University builds hybrid NAND-ReRAM unit that’s faster than a speeding SSD
A team from Chuo University, has reportedly developed a hybrid SSD that’s reportedly 11 times faster than your average solid state unit. Combining NAND Flash with ReRAM, the magical union consumes 93 percent less power and lasts nearly seven times as long as pure-NAND products. Despite the high cost of ReRAM, if it enables data centers to save on continuously replacing worn-out SSDs, and could very be rapidly adopted if worked into a commercial system. The findings will be unveiled at the Hawaii Symposium on VSLI Circuits through tomorrow — after which time, the team can reasonably expect to spend some time on the beach.
