The Next Revolution: 3D XPoint™ non-volatile memories with speed and performance close to DRAM

See also the UPDATE on that from Intel Corporation’s (INTC) CEO, Brian Krzanich Presents at Sanford C Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference 2016 – Brokers Conference Transcript of June 1, 2016.

Transistorless 3D XPoint™ non-volatile memories with speed close to RAM but with more than 10x density: 128 Gb per die in 2016 vs. the current 8Gb DRAM per die in 2015. This technology has been developed over many years by Micron and Intel jointly:
• less than 1 µsec Persistent Memory with DIMMs based on 3D XPoint™
• less than 10 µsec ultra fast Intel Optane™ SSD NVMe SSD

This will lead to a new industry shakeout, similar to one which happened between 1970 and 2016 due to the very fundamental progress in transistor densities for DRAM arrays and logic circuits on a die. See slide #3. For your convenience included here as well:

This slideshow contains 3 minutes of presentation with 11 slides followed by 7 minutes of keynote by Rob Crooke Intel SVP and GM of the Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group at IDF16 on Shenzhen China April 13, 2016:
• 3D NAND technology focusing on cost and capacity improvements
• 3D XPoint™ technology focusing on breakthrough in speed and performance
• Demostration of the ultra fast Intel Optane™ SSD NVMe SSD, early prototype

Think especially about the last slide:
