Unfortunately the article is low on details.

I get that it is yet another technology aiming at nonvolatile memory. But how does it compare to all the other technologies, like MRAM, FRAM, FeRAM, ...

In short: Why should I assume that this is the future of nonvolatile memory, and not one of the other candidates?

Or at least give us the relevant data points, so we can dig up the same data for other contenders and do the comparison ourselves.
What is the read speed? Write speed? Durability of the stored information? How much energy does it cost to write a bit? To read a bit? Is it random access, or is it just erasable blocks like in Flash?
