Submission + - HP to introduce flash replacement in 2013 (electronicsweekly.com)

Spy Hunter writes: Memristors are the basis of a new memory technology being developed by HP and Hynix. At the International Electronics Forum 2011 today Stan Williams, senior fellow at HP Labs, said "We’re planning to put a replacement chip on the market to go up against flash within a year and a half." "We’re running hundreds of wafers through the fab," and "we're way ahead of where we thought we would be at this moment in time."

They're not stopping at a flash replacement either, with Williams saying "In 2014 possibly, or certainly by 2015, we will have a competitor for DRAM and then we’ll replace SRAM." With a non-volatile replacement for DRAM and SRAM, will we soon see the end of the reboot entirely?
