While the news that Samsung announces PCs with Flash instead of a real HD is itself interesting, further down they note that:
As we reported last week, Samsung will also start shipping NAND-hard drive combos with 128MB and 256MB of NAND during the third quarter.
The authors go on to note that Intel is releasing it’s own Flash-caching technology, called Robson.
This is very much related to the MRAMFS work I did; I mean, I doubt they read my compression papers, but it’s all based on the same underlying concept. Very cool.
