A Different Spin on Future Data Storage

Abstract:
The next generation of computers will be "instant-on," meaning they won't need to be booted up to move hard-drive data into memory. They'll also store data in a smaller space and access it faster, while consuming less power than today's machines thanks in part to the development of magnetic random access memory chips, or MRAM. These MRAM chips will store data through the spin of electrons, giving them a distinct advantage over today's chips, which utilize electron charge.
