New memory chips use light to store and transmit data 100 times faster than SSD


Computers are only as fast as their components, and one key component is about to get a serious shot of adrenaline. Solid-state drives marked a huge step forward in device memory, capable of reading and writing data at speeds far greater than any disc-based hard drive. SSD technology still uses electronic chips to move data though, which introduces a number of factors that limit the speeds at which data can be transferred. A revolutionary new type of memory chip being developed by researchers at Oxford University and Germany’s Karlsruhe Institute of Technology has completely eliminated those speed-limiting issues, and it could lead to storage solutions that outperform SSD drives by a staggering margin.
