Ridiculous for 3d and those u- tracks

Interesting development...but who needs 100 million read/write cycles? flash drive disk? Kris

In 3D, each heats an entire plane and this is not dissipated out quickly, so the adjacent planes also thermally disturbed.

Who needs it? Flash disks would certainly be one as it would reduce the need for leveling algorithms. Could also change system architecture by using flash more for cache/paging as you don't need to worry (as much) about read/write failures. In terms of write speeds, you could have higher parallelism for writing more bits at a time again because you may now use more like a traditional disk, near volatile memory.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
