Besides the XPoint: Persistent memory tech is cool, but the price tag... OUCH


3D Xpoint is 5x slower than DRAM and 100x slower than SRAM... with 100x less endurance. Right now it appears to be ideal for a "superfast SSD niche" ... which means it wont be cost effective as mentioned above.

once it is in 5% of the laptops or 5% of servers we can talk more... that will be a few years at least according to Intel
