Source“50 years of crazed, prolific invention”
In a Michigan bankruptcy court, a quietly brutal legal battle is taking place over one of the most innovative new memory technologies in over 25 years.
The suit names both Intel and Micron – who are developing rival products based on similar technology – as defendants. It spans thousands of pages of heavily redacted claims, including alleged breach of contract, and fraudulent transfer.
At its heart are claims about a “highly irregular” transaction that took place in 2015, three days after the chip giants jointly launched a radical new memory class – 3D XPoint – that they claim can be “up to 1,000 times faster than NAND”.

Looks like even 3dXP was a stolen tech, seems Intel never fails to disappoint in the worst possible way
