MEMORY. Understanding; a capacity to make contracts, a will, or to commit a crime, so far as intention is necessary.
     2. Memory is sometimes employed to express the capacity of the understanding, and sometimes its power; when we speak of a retentive memory, we use it in the former sense; when of a ready memory, in the latter. Shelf. on Lun. Intr. 29, 30.
     3. Memory, in another sense, is the reputation, good or bad, which a man leaves at his death. This memory, when good, is highly prized by the relations of the deceased, and it is therefore libelous to throw a shade over the memory of the dead, when the writing has a tendency to create a breach of the peace, by inciting the friends and relations of the deceased to avenge the insult offered to the family. 4 T. R. 126; 5 Co. R. 125; Hawk. b. 1, c. 73, s. 1.

MEMORY, TIME OF. According to the English common law, which has been altered by 2 & 3 Wm. IV., c. 71, the time of memory commenced from the reign of Richard the First, A. D. 1189. 2 Bl. Com. 31.
     2. But proof of a regular usage for twenty years, not explained or contradicted, is evidence upon which many public and private rights are held, and sufficient for a jury in finding the existence of an immemorial custom or prescription. 2 Saund. 175, a, d; Peake's Ev. 336; 2 Price's R. 450; 4 Price's R. 198.

The Register compiled a list of similarities between PCM and 3D XPoint based on Intel's limited remarks as of 2016, but the similarities are enormous.
But questions of how 3D XPoint memory works are secondary to how it performs, so let's shift our focus to that question.
3D XPoint is a new non-volatile memory technology that is quite fast, as fast as most of today's SSDs but has better latency than existing SSDs.
In case of 3D XPoint SSDs, the individual memory cells do not require a transistor which means that the packing density will be approximately 4 times as that of DRAM.
Intel will be selling 3D XPoint enabled hardware under the Optane brand.
Adding to the previous question, while Intel has revealed plans to bring out its commercial grade SSDs based on its 3D XPoint technology by the end of the year, can you give me a time frame as to whether this product, whatever it is, will be coming to the commercial market in India?
Early testing of Intel Optane solid state drive (SSD) prototypes which utilize 3D XPoint Memory Media demonstrate a 10 times reduction in latency and three times increase in throughput as compared to a NAND SSD1, allowing for significantly faster movement of data between the storage device and CPU.
3D XPoint technology is a breakthrough that creates a new class of memory that greatly reduces the cost, performance and power trade-offs that most system builders make when they design storage and memory solutions.
Intel's joint Micron venture and its 3D XPoint could disrupt the status quo when it arrives next year, but I'll wait for benchmarks and hard data before concluding that it will.
The new 3D Xpoint memory architecture is designed to address critical shortcomings of both NAND flash and DDR4.
3D Xpoint (pronounced "crosspoint") is designed in a 3D structure, like some of the other cutting-edge 3D NAND.
That's 125x more dense than DRAM, and it implies that 3D Xpoint may not be all that dense compared with NAND flash.
