Well, Samsung engineers have some guts to present "a paper." After all, Samsung lied that they would have a cell phone with phase-change memory by the end of June 2010 ( http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/newsView.do?news_id=1148 ). The "rumor" is that "as of July ... Samsung had yet to deliver engineering samples, largely because phase-change power consumption remains too high for handsets." ( http://spectrum.ieee.org/semiconductors/memory/resistive-ram-gains-ground ) Can't wait for "PCM Scalability:The Myth (Part 3)." It appears we are getting very close to the final end of the longest-running techno-Ponzi, the phase-change memory.
