Move over Optane, DDR5 would like its time in the spotlight as well. In 2018 we will see the full specifications of DDR5 being released, including a new non-volatile standard called NVDIMM-P. NVDIMM-P will handle terabytes worth of flash storage, with a latency about 10 times as much as the more standard NVDIMM-N at 100's of nanoseconds which should allow large scale storage with very low latencies and will retain data after being powered down. Pop by The Register for a deeper look at the non-volatile future of DDR5.
"The JEDEC Solid State Technology Association has revealed that a full standard for DDR5 memory will arrive in June 2018, along with a new NVDIMM-P standard to house the memory, connect it to computers and protect the contents of RAM."
