    This could be the future of solid state storage.

    My mind is blown. I feel that once I'm old (not even maybe) everyone will be laughing there were click wheel iPods and spinning drives.

    Amazing stuff, so in five years all my old SSD drives are obsolete crap :)

    If its going to be available in 5 years, my plans to buy SSD memory just disappeared.

    Seriously, SSD technology won't even be mainstream by the time this is released, so why even bother with its development. I say put all of the engineers on that and get us a commercially available drive by 2016

    If you go to the Engadget link and see the Press Release, you can read in detail how they achieved this new tech. It's amazing! Too long to post here though.

    Just imagine. In a few short years we will have a system on a chip that will blow our minds,

    CPU, GPU, 10 TB system use/storage hybrid ram all in a coin sized package.
