Phase-change memory

Macworld reports IBM, Qimonda and Macronix International have developed a new variety of memory - phase-change memory which runs 500 times faster than flash memory and uses only one-half the power.

The article notes that "new chip designs must be relatively easy to manufacture, and they need to be cost-effective enough to attract device makers" and mentions that Rambus was unable to convert the market to its new memory several years ago . . .
