Non-volatile MRAM coming to servers in early 2017

Black boxes, video recorders, and the like, need this badly.

32 megabytes is several seconds of video at reasonable resolution. Something with this modest capacity, but non-volatile with virtually-infinite write endurance, would be perfect as a circular buffer for event-recorder data.

Smack a trigger button to save-off the recent clip to bulk flash storage, sure. Post the funny stuff on your blog later. But if a literal crash happens and the system just stops mid-frame, the last little bit in the MRAM buffer would tell investigators what happened.

I'll buy a dashboard camera with this, if it ever comes out!
