This is pretty exciting news. This Xpoint storage could possibly be the breakthrough that would put storage off the list of the bottlenecks for a computer... No longer would we be waiting on the storage drive to queue the file you're loading but now it'd be up to the CPU/memory or something else that'd eventually take the place of the storage bottleneck...Honestly this could be pretty scary how fast PC's could become...even with current gen CPU/GPU's the storage war could be totally dominated by the 3D Xpoint. One question though, is this limited to Intel only? Meaning, do they have a patent on the technology that they can monopolize the market with???
