I think I said that...somewhere. As the inventor of the SSD, back in August 1980, the only real option available was 64kbit DRAMs, eventually shifting to 256kbit (1983) and 1 mbit by about 1987. S100 Computers - SemiDisk History

S100 Computers - SemiDisk History
The unlimited lifetime, both read and write, of a DRAM was assumed...
However, I don't know enough about the disk-usage characteristics of this new kind of storage-crypto to know what the cost trade-offs are. Can most of the 'disk' reads/writes be cached? That would certainly minimize SD card usage, and thus limit the wearout mechanisms.

How about 2-4 TBs of RAM? Removes the wear-and-tear issue of SSDs. 🤑
