Soon your computer and electronic gadgets could be smaller, faster, cheaper, more relliable and even greener thanks to a new form of computer memory technology called racetrack.
Racetrack memory is currently under development at IBM and will be a vast improvement over today’s leading computer memory technology – hard disk and flash – which each have serious limitations.
Racktrack is showing to be more reliable than hard disks, making consistent computer crashes, well, a distant memory. And it’s cheaper than flash – perhaps 100 times less expensive.
