Imagine a computer that isn't just designed to \"deal\" with the heat produced by its components, but one that actually uses that wasted energy to power some of its high-tech internals. That's the potential of a new discovery out of the Physical and Technical Institute (PTB) of Braunschweig, Germany

We've already heard plenty of claims about how MRAM (or magnetoresistive RAM) would leave traditional memory in the dust, but a group of German researchers are now saying that they've found a way to blow past the MRAM that IBM and others are just now putting the finishing touches on. Their big brea

It wasn't long ago that IBM promised to unleash its racetrack MRAM (magnetoresistive RAM) on a power and speed-hungry computing public, but now Toshiba says its 1GB MRAM chips are \"almost ready\". The chips use Spin-RAM (STT-RAM) and Toshiba fully expects them to take over where DRAM left off by 201

So, how do you go about impressing the world after busting out a few systems based around the \"fastest chip on Earth?\" By getting us all worked up for a little thing called racetrack memory, that's how. Far from being the first memory technology that runs laps around the DIMMs we're relying on today

Joining the ranks of quintessential kit that any spy (or CuteCircuit-equipped individual) should have on hand is Philips' self-destructing MRAM (magnetoresistive RAM). While securing data typically deals with some sort of password protection or biometrics, Philips' creation takes a page from the Mis

While cellphone giant Motorola has been busy selling endless iterations of the RAZR and other oddly-named phones, their semiconductor spin-off Freescale has been doing quite well for itself, and is on the verge of being purchased for quite a few billion dollars. Freescale just got a $17.6 billion of

Remember those new MRAM (magnetoresistive RAM) chips the industry's been working on for the last decade or so? Well Freescale stepped away from all that UWB bidness long enough to develop what they're calling the world's first commercially available MRAM chips to combine RAM's endurance with the har
