3D XPoint is a "Non-Volatile Memory" technology announced by Intel and Micron in 2015. This new technology boasts up to 10x lower latency, 3x write endurance, 4x writes per second performance improvement, 3x reads per second, and 30% power usage. This means faster performance using less battery and power. Mobile devices will love this technology as will the enterprise sector. At the last industry meeting that I went to, Intel representatives said the tech will be rolled out to the enterprise server sector first with the rest to follow.
