Samsung Develops New Memory Chip
Samsung Electronics has unveiled a new type of memory chip that it said will allow digital devices to work faster by saving new data more quickly, reports The Age.
"The phase-change random access memory, or PRAM, chip is nonvolatile, meaning it will retain data even when an electronic device is turned off, and is about 30 times faster than conventional flash memory, Samsung said.
... Flash memory chips are used extensively in digital music devices, digital cameras and mobile phones."
