Memory leads the way to better computing

H.-S. Philip Wong, Sayeef Salahuddin
2015 Nature Nanotechnology  
The report itself was drawn from the results of a series of meetings over the second half of 2007, and as such reflects a snapshot in time.  ...  Further, the report itself was assembled in just a few months at the beginning of 2008 from input by the participants.  ...  With a checkpoint time of 3 seconds (8.3×10 −4 hours), a checkpointing interval of about 3 minutes is near 184 optimal which gives a checkpoint overhead of about 1.7% (see Section 6.7.4).  ...
