Last year Intel announced a breakthrough in memory tech. The company was introducing so-called 3D XPoint technology, which fits nicely in the market somewhere between DRAM and SSDs. The new non-volatile dies were supposed to revolutionize computing, but instead their launch is getting significantly delayed.

According to Intelís original marketing blitz, 3D XPoint technology not only allowed for significantly faster non-volatile memory, but also offered excellent memory density. This allows storage devices to be significantly smaller than existing models.



What was great about the whole announcement was that Intelís new technology wasnít just some proof-of-concept pipe-dream, but was instead in full production with a wide release scheduled for this year. Unfortunately, it looks like Intel has run into trouble and has silently and significantly postponed the launch of 3D XPoint tech...
