Don't get too excited yet. Wiki's summary is misleading on two fronts that I personally know about in my own projects that have used MRAM:
- Density of commercially available parts is currently orders of magnitude lower than commercially available DRAM. Density may reach parity at some point in the future, but it's not accurate to claim it today.
- As with DRAM, there actually is an upper limit to durability. MRAM's limit is much, much higher than NAND, but it's also much lower than DRAM. It's "virtually" unlimited in that it's rated in gigacycles and tech docs often say "unlimited read/write cycles", but it isn't truly the case.
These two things will improve over time, but for today their summary is inaccurate.
