Even if it doesn't make its way to consumer devices right away, I'd expect that we consumers see its benefits indirectly in faster cloud services and deeper data processing when this new technology reaches market.

What is Project Theseus?
A team of Greek IBM scientists in Zurich have created a groundbreaking new memory technology, which combines flash with phase change memory (PCM) on a PCI-e card.
Initial tests have clocked 12x and 275x improvements. IBM scientist Ioannis Kolsidas explained, “The technologies are complementary, which is why the Theseus project is so important. We took two very different memory technologies and made them work on an existing PCI-e bus, which can be found on any PC or laptop today, taking it a step closer from demo to deployment."
