In the future RAM will be eliminated in computers. IMO

Unless CPU cache sizes shatter Moore's law we will have RAM for a while.

I will repeat again, SSD cannot write indefinitely. The faster the SSD, the quicker it can wear out the memory.

RAM cannot retain the data when there's no current running on it while SSD can. If you would run game directly on the SSD replacing the ram function, the memory would probably wear out within hours by just playing a game.

PCI Express flash storage is 2x faster than an SSD. Should be fast enough.

But what about other things...

Take a look at steam os maybe you only use your pc for gaming and a few light tasks linux takes very small space couldn't we have a memory chip on our motherboard that holds the OS which in turn would mean I could boot up super fast.


Also with things like cloud storage would mean we would need less hard space. Of course that is way way down the road. But I like the idea that mmo use in that you can download the first few levels of the game and start playing while your downloading the rest. So there is no point in having a huge hard drive if you only downloaded the parts you needed right away.

They already do that... My computer at work is basically a lite version of windows on a chip.... Everything else is done on a server on the network. The "OS" in this case is just the bare minimum to do everything the server can't do.

Not all RAM is volatile.
