Is anyone really that frustrated by hibernation, these days with ssd's its quick.
Can definitely see a future where your SSD is seen more like memory than just storage. It would need to be as fast or faster than main memory for it to replace main memory.
It is as fast as main memory.
It uses next to no power and has no annoying refresh cycles to add delays.
The problems are:
1) It may be more expensive to produce since it's more exotic than the boring stuff we use currently
2) It's in the very, very, very, very, very early stages of proof of concept. It's currently storing bits, not gigabits.
So... it may come out of the lab like memristors haven't in about 10 years.
My 64Gb RAM workstation still makes this a PITA. Even with 32 or 16 it's still enough to chafe, meaning I put it into sleep mode instead. Maybe if I had a PCI-E drive rather than plain old normal SSD? Maybe.
People still use hibernate? Sleep does the job fine these days with even a half-decent SSD.
PCI-E drives make this pretty quick. 32gb..
I think Hynix is leading DDR5 system memory atm.. I think they had DDR5 6400 RAM at CES 2020.
That’s not all that new. HPE has had NVDIMMs since 2016 - proper DDR4 dimms with some flash memory and a battery pack.
Intel has made nvdimms since 2017 using nv flash memory in a dimm stick too but that’s ot as quick.
Sleep doesn't even used the hard drive so ssd or not it's the same.
Totally different technology?
But with SSD's able to transfer at 7,000 Mb/s. Most people will only have to wait ~2 seconds.
I would rather faster storage than permanent memory. 4 PCIE in Raid 0 will give 28Gb/s ..
My Commodore 64 boots in a second.
"It uses around 1 percent of the energy that today's DRAM and NAND flash memory require to write data." That's impressive, severs will definitely be using this tech. I won't be holding my breath for it to come out though.
All with a grain of salt though, usually the initial research claims are presented out of context; later when the implementation is worked on it turns out that you need all this baggage to actually have the damned thing work that spends the advantages away.
Well apart from the fact none of that stuff has ever actually worked properly for me, nope.
I remember back in like 1999 they had said we would get 3D dvd like discs with hundreds of GB (back when a 4.7GB DVD was big), never came out.
Lithium Nano wire batteries, sure that was just a few years away many years ago.
Graphene all the things.
List goes on.
Also we have faster stuff already just well expensive.
