No eventual disturb by subthreshold leakage? Not too sure about that.

The power is not applied to MRAM cell when it is not accessed, therefore there is no subthreshold leakage. It can also be non-volatile because of that.

But isn't there a transistor in series with the MRAM? That can pass subthreshold current.

What is the speed and current consumption for writing SST-MRAM? Write disturbance is a very serious issue for old MRAM. What is the write disturbance for present vertical SST-MRAM? Apreciate your comments.

The read current is about a third of write current. The switching time depends on current, the lower current requires longer time. A long enough read could do it. But scaled down resistance goes up, slowing down read anyway.
