Intel's and Micron Technology's 3D XPoint


    Since Intel and Micron Technology announced their 3D XPoint™ resistive memory, or RRAM, there’s been quite a stir. It comes at the intersection of Big Data, the Internet of Things, and a growing performance gap in memory due to Moore’s Law shrinking.  Dan Hutcheson has a conversation about the impact it will have with Jim Handy, from Objective Analysis. Jim is one of the most respected memory analysts in the world. Watch the video to find out their differing views as Dan looks at it from a manufacturing perspective and Jim takes a system level perspective. They debate questions like: Will it grow the memory pie or will it take share from DRAM and Flash?
