Micron's came up with a new product that adds flash memory on " the DDR4 bus in 18 months... leapfrogging today’s solid state drives on PCI Express to open up new applications. ... The move gives flash a new position in the computer memory hierarchy, ahead of today’s solid state drives that ride the PCI Express bus.
The Hybrid DIMMs will be more expensive than SSDs but likely offer greater performance with memory access times measured in nano- rather than microseconds."

This is an interesting product that leverages the speed of flash and places it higher in a computer system hierarchy. Intel have been working on developing other products that add flash memory closer to the microprocessor (see April 5, 2012 Flash is not just about storage )
