Comments on: Intel Introduces Faster Flash Memory

Intel has shown off its Synchronous StrataFlash Memory, a new type of flash memory chip that can access data up to four times faster than current ones, making it a good solution for storing data and executing code on handheld devices.

Synchronous Intel StrataFlash memory increases fast-read speeds by adding a 66-MHz burst mode. This increases memory throughput up to 92 MB/s, effectively four times faster than asynchronous reads on standard flash memory products.

What does this mean? Another standard to compete with memory stick, springboard, SD, etc?

What they mean, is that if a manufacturer were to switch to the Intel chips, the apps could be run off the expansion card. (Memory Stick 2.0?:)


so how does that compare to ram?

92 mb per second... how does that compare to the ram that is in our palms now?

No, not the flash ram, the native ram. The ram that for right now you have to load the applications (or parts thereof) to in order for the program to work?
