It's hard to replace SRAM with a technology that requires new elements besides the usual transistors. If embedded DRAM took hold, MRAM could replace it, but it's not established as an SRAM replacement either.

MRAM is a non-volatile memory

Isn't it ironic how technology repeats itself? I am hoping that they can improve density along the lines of Moores Law. I am looking forward to systems that can recover from a power off condition to the exact state it was in when it went into a super low power mode.

Towards the end of this article it is informed that "Everspin" has actually started to ship MRAM chips in large volume. Is "Everspin" some how related to MagSil or did they buy license from MagSil? I would love to hear from somebody who might have used this memory in the design? Looks like this memory chip is volatile like SRAMs, correct? Are there any special advantages over SRAM? Since this is a new technology, won't this be costlier, atleast for some time?

Well, this one will certainly be interesting to watch. "pretty soon" is a bit nebulous, and makes it tough for companies that might want to use the technology in their products to plan properly, but it would certainly be nice to see this technology come to fruition and leave the hype behind.

Is MRAM for real or not? Is it a mere SRAM replacement or a next-gen memory? Thoughts out there?
