Nanosecond latencies and disturbingly high throughput are already
possibly today :) Consider the battery-backed RAM gadgets that present

In fact I'm about to strip down drivers/scsi/sata_promise.c to a driver
that just talks to the DIMM, and another else: drivers/block/pdc_mem.c.
At that point you're really just looking at the PCI bus and RAM limits...
