Radio Free HPC Looks at 3D XPoint Non-Volatile Memory

3D Xpoint™ technology is up to 1000x faster than NAND and an individual die can store 128Gb of data.

3D Xpoint™ technology is up to 1000x faster than NAND and an individual die can store 128Gb of data.

In this video, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the newly announced 3D XPoint technology from Intel and Micron.

Following more than a decade of research and development, 3D XPoint technology was built from the ground up to address the need for non-volatile, high-performance, high-endurance and high-capacity storage and memory at an affordable cost. It ushers in a new class of non-volatile memory that significantly reduces latencies, allowing much more data to be stored close to the processor and accessed at speeds previously impossible for non-volatile storage. The innovative, transistor-less cross point architecture creates a three-dimensional checkerboard where memory cells sit at the intersection of word lines and bit lines, allowing the cells to be addressed individually. As a result, data can be written and read in small sizes, leading to faster and more efficient read/write processes.
