SanDisk and HP have entered into a new partnership, one which will see the two companies producing something that they call… nothing specific really. What we do know is that it’ll be a combination between HP’s Memrister technology and SanDisk’s ReRAM tech.

The result?

“The technology is expected to be up to 1,000 times faster than flash storage and offer up to 1,000 times more endurance than flash storage. It also is expected to offer significant cost, power, density and persistence improvements over DRAM technologies.”

There’s no timeline for the collaboration but what they’re describing is quite similar to an Intel/Micron project called 3D XPoint, Ars Technica points out. They’re technically competing, but both exciting, technologies. We can’t wait to see what pops out at the end of development.
