Ram Memory Revolution Arrives with Crossbar’s ReRam
RAM Memory is probably one of the most essential part of any Computing system, be it a Gaming Rig, a Supercomputer
or Rendering/Video Processing Applications. RAM Memory enables the CPU
and aids GPU, without it even the most Titan of systems wouldn’t be able
to process 2+2. Although you would know this unless you have been
living under a rock for the past decade, a fledgling company by the name
of Crossbar has managed to create an actual ReRam Ram Memory Module
which would make current RAM Memorys look like clunky old hardware,
effectively making them obsolete. Not only that it could be your Storage
Medium while at the same time doubling as your Random Access Medium!
What Is ReRam Ram Memory?
The absolute first thing to know about ReRam is that it is
Non-Volatile. Meaning that it wont loose your data in the case of an
electrical outage; meaning that the only drawback of our current RAM Disks
will be eliminated; meaning that in the future the lines between your
RAM and Storage will become extremely blurred. ReRam is comparable to
NAND Flash Memory. ReRam works by
creating resistance instead of storing charge. The material of the
ReRam changes its resistance when current is applied so the Changed
resistance can be measured as a 0 or a 1.
RAM Memory Type ReRam Applications For Gamers and Professionals
Needless to say if RAM Memory was drastically improved the speed and
performance of GPUs, CPUs and Computing Processes would also increase
exponentially. Keep in mind that in the future ReRam might give you
lightning fast storage AND accelerate your random access! But what
exactly would better RAM Memory mean in every aspect of Computer Technology?
For the Professional, Better Ram Memory would mean less CPU Bottleneck exponentially increasing the peak performance and parallel computing capability of Supercomputing Clusters and HPC Devices such as Nvidia Tesla and the Intel Co Processor.
As far as Rendering and Video processing are concerned, I have seen
users who swear by their RAM! RAM Memory is so essential to Video
Processing and Rendering that in most cases the speed of a render or video transcode is directly proportional to the amount of RAM Memory you have.
Now in the field of Gaming, better RAM Memory would have
perhaps the most narrow spectrum but highly intense effect. The quality
of how good your ingame world looks, depends on a lot of things but one
very important thing is textures. The higher the texture size the more
photorealistic it looks. So far the video game industry has relied on
increasing Ram Memory Size to combat increasing Texture Sizes, but
sooner or later the performance of the RAM Memory itself is going to
catch up and start bottlenecking the size. But if ReRam was your Storage
Medium AND your Random Access Medium then theoretically you could
employ textures of mind boggling proportions. Think 8k for entry level.
Needless to say this is a pretty big thing.
