Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new device that represents a significant advance for computer memory, making large-scale "server farms" more energy efficient and allowing computers to start more quickly. Traditionally, there are two types of computer memory devices. Slow memory devices are used in persistent data storage technologies such as flash drives. They allow us to save information for extended periods of time, and are therefore called nonvolatile...

Random access memory (RAM) is a form of computer data storage that takes the form of integrated circuits in order to allow stored data to be accessed in any order. Random refers to the idea that any piece of data can be restored in a constant time, regardless of its physical location and whether or not it is related to the prior piece of data. The word RAM is often associated with unstable types of memory where the information is lost after the power is switched off. Magnetic core memory...
