RE shifting balance between DRAM and NAND - in response to current/forecasted growth in data requirements,server OEMs are aggressively modifying architectures to accommodate NAND and other emerging NVM in order to deal with the increasing power consumption of data centers.

Why is NOR revenue shrinking? Is it already being replaced by DRAM and NAND?

How do the units of memory (GB) storage sold compare between flash and DRAM? Is flash memory really taking over the market? Since flash is much more expensive, equal dollar sales do not equate to equal memory sales. Since flash memory suffers from limits on rewrite cycles, what is the likely balance in installed memory between the two technologies?

No, the way I read the above chart, DRAM revenue was $31.2 billion, while total flash revenue (both NAND and NOR) was $29.6 billion.

If you include both NAND and NOR flash, the revenue exceeded DRAM even before, right?

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.
