The selling point of RRAM seems to be minimal energy consumption per cycle and scales smaller than flash.

This read-write endurance would seem to exceed the lifetime memory writing operational requirements for a home computer. Does it make sense to start by deploying this technology to replace flash memory (with limited write cycles) in portions of computers with heavy re-write usage until it is cheap enough for wider deployment?

Lower temperature should be better, but published data almost always focuses on high temperature, which is harsher.

As as an Aerospace component engineer, I wonder if how this technology behaves under cold-start conditions. Will it even work down to -55C?

It's too bad pt is used. Also, they haven't solved sneak path problem .for large arrays.

@chanj In mid-May Panasonic reportedly announced it is planning volume production of a 2-Mbit ReRAM in 2012. Nikkei and Reuters are referenced as sources. Panasonic is known to have researched tantalum oxide ReRAM from presentations at learned conferences such as IEDM 2008. ReRAM samples should be ready before the end of 2011 and volume production will start at Panasonic's Tonami Plant (Tonami City, Toyama Prefecture) the reports said.

Impressive numbers but I wonder if the 10ns switching time best case number or if it is likely to go down.. Hard to tell from the info.

The trillion time read-write cycles and the energy requirement may be the focus of the research. More infos on Panasonic ReRAM are welcomed.

SAIT does not represent what Samsung plans to manufacture, but what could disrupt Samsung any time. This achievement looks underwhelming because Panasonic did this more than three years ago. But Panasonic will sample it later this year, I hear.
