Non-volatile RAM -- NVRAM for short -- is the Next Big Thing in digital storage. Everspin has announced that the industry's first Perpendicular Magnetic Tunnel Junction chip is now shipping. The company will demo the worlds's fastest SSD using it next week.
At the Flash Memory Summit, Everspin will demo what it bills as the world's fastest SSD, a single PCIe card capable of 1.5 million random 4k writes per second. Since most Flash SSD-based arrays can't manage 1 million reads per second, yeah, it's fast.
