[Kotaku] New Type Of Memory Could Boot Your Computer Instantly! - Page 3

Not only is the device a time saver, it's also an energy saver as well. They're calling it "power proportional computing," and it works by allowing computers that are normally always using power to retain data in their system memory to take a break, storing the data in the non-volatile portion to be retrieved immediately when needed.
Could see something like this really helping out the portable market (laptops, netbooks, etc.). Wouldn't think price would be to high since you don't buy massive amounts of storage for your laptop (normally) and saving battery life, even if its a few minutes on what you already have, is always good. Especially when you're increasing its speed to do it.

who actually reboots? my desktop has been on with no sleeping or hibernation or anything for a couple of weeks now.

Then there's volatile memory. This is your computer's RAM. It's memory used to allow your system to access data extremely quickly, but it only lasts as long as power is applied. Once the PC shuts down, the memory is clear.
Dunno if anyone else has pointed it out but this is incorrect. RAM data can be accessed several minutes of powerlessness.

Memory isn't the problem, it is OSes that insist on loading dreck, bloat, and a hundred kitchen sinks when booting. Like really, an old C-64 starts up faster than a Windows rig.

Sure, Windows is fancier and all, but maybe if they got rid of half the useless code, and not just that, they could juts get rid of all the legal boilerplate and beg screens. But that is true of most software these days.

If you want to wait for this particular technology to replace NAND, be prepared to wait a decade and pay 3-10 times as much per GB. Concepts are nice but manufacturing costs and performance are more important.
Well said. QFT!
