"next gen flash gets rid of power objections"

It does and it doesn't.  A box with a heavy continuous write load will eventually end up with
all its "buffer" flash in erase mode, and write throughput will drop down to erase speed.  So
RAM will always be better than flash for high performance transactional setups, but less
demanding loads will be fine with flash.
