Re: [ARSCLIST] solid state disks
Fascinating! Looks like the MRAM chip is still at a small capacity (4 Mb).
I gather that endurance means information "does not degrade over time".
Flash memory is already pretty quick on the draw. So "SSD" is barely out of
the chute, and along comes "MRAM". You gotta love it! If these items live
up to their promise, we all should be in store for some pretty amazing
devices that will directly affect sound recording.

That might already be obsolete -- take a look at this:
Achieving a long-sought goal of the $48 billion (euro37.6 billion)
memory chip industry, Freescale Semiconductor Inc. announced the
commercial availability of a chip that combines traditional
memory's endurance with a hard drive's ability to keep data
while powered down.
[ By "endurance" they seem to mean fast access time.]
