Hardware, Embedded Systems HP scientists have made a small breakthrough in the development of a next-generation memory technology called memristors, which some see as a potential replacement for today's widely used flash and DRAM technologies. In a paper to be published Monday in the journal "Nanotechnology," scientists report that they have mapped out the basic chemistry and structure of what happens inside a memristor during its electrical operation.

Yeah, that means a data transfer rate of 3.7 MB/year if I did my calculation right ;)

Of course, they could put them in parallel to make the thing faster, but they couldn't make it dramatically faster.
