IBM is one of a number of companies working on a next-generation storage memory project.  A recent discovery at Texas A&M University is a step forward for the company's racetrack memory. Racetrack memory relies on a nanowire arranged perpendicular to the chip. Current pulses across the nanowires allow data to be shifted as necessary. The Texas team has discovered a way to pulse the current much more efficiently and quickly, which could definitely help future racetrack devices to compete in the marketplace. In theory, racetrack memory could be the Holy Grail of storage, capable of replacing both traditional hard drives and SSDs simultaneously. Flash-based storage will never be able to... Read more...
