the ceo is speaking about on=package 3DXP, not dimms. Dimms will work with anything with proper code support, it dosnt require a hardware change to the CPU.

Dynamically adjusting the voltages of the individual cells is hardly new, or even exciting, tech. SMART Storage and STEC began doing that in 2011. Now there are a few more hooks exposed, such as in Micron Fortis Flash, but others are also exploiting this technique as well. Again, nothing new.
Explain the "new" part again? I'm having a hard time understanding what is being done that is not already done elsewhere. From the descriptions in the article, and on the NVMdurance site, none of this is new.
Deduplication and compression also apply to HDD storage as well, an oft-overlooked fact, especially when looking at cold storage, which is the vast majority of data. Sure, disks cannot absorb the performance hit quite as easily, but you are burning CPU cycles for all that dedupe and compression anyway no matter the medium, and for cold data the performance overhead is tenable.
These SSDs were never powered off not once. that is the fail in this testing. Endurance is rated for data retention with the power off. Several of the guys who did the initial testing (that this testing is based off of) had SSDs 'die' after one second of power off after they had reached their warrantied writes. If you removed power from any of those SSDs, period, even halfway through that test every single bit of data would be gone.
