IBM has made a phase-change memory (PCM) breakthrough that may lead to the development of solid-state chips (SSD) that will match and surpass NAND flash technology data storage by 100 times the performance and with a greater lifespan, reports Computerworld. PCM chips created by IBM are able to store two bits of data per cell, and all this without data corruption problems, says IBM. NAND flash memory, which is currently used in SSD drives, has write rates as high as 2Gbit/sec, says...
