Depending on where you look on the Ramtron website, they say 
"practically unlimited" to "more than 1,000,000,000,000".  That's 
cycles *per cell*, not for the whole unit.  Even with most GHz CPUs, 
hitting one location more than a quadrillion times is quite a bit.  I 
wonder what the cycle lifetime is for core memory?

Cheers,
