Think its going to take a while until we can use this in our PC’s, some big changes to the architecture would be needed,,, I think.

I doubt we will be able to plug one of those sticks into our rigs yet.

I do believe this is a product name for memristers or something very similar.

ReRam, I like it. If they get it right it'll change the computer memory market.

The future looks good.

I do believe this type of memory will be superior to ddr type ram, just not sure on how fast the tech will improve to get it into our main rigs. Who knows maybe in the future a tablet will become so powerful and richly featured they will be considered main rigs  scratch-head
