Abstract: 

Intel and Micron recently introduced their 3D XPoint (pronounced "crosspoint") memory technology, a new development that can serve as both system memory (RAM) and nonvolatile storage. The new technology is up to 1,000 times faster than NAND flash with 1,000 times greater endurance and is 10 times as dense as DRAM. It is said to be in production today with samples this year and shipping products starting next year.
