Samsung and Micron start a quest for the perfect RAM module with the Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium
These Hybrid Memory Cubes (HMC) will be different from current DRAM in both technology and architecture. The promised advantages sound breathtaking - 15 times the speed in just 10% of the current footprint, and consuming 70% less energy than current DDR3 modules. Here's the kicker - it will be also cheaper to produce than DRAM.
common standard, which should be ironed out next year for mass adoption. Just when we thought things can't improve much more for smartphones and tablets in the silicon department.

Did u read retards!!!! The tech has been developed by intel not samsung!!! They will buy it or steal the idea!!!! And u know samsung rigs all benchmark tests right? Why would two totally diff chips get about the same mind blowing score!!!! 1.5 qualcomm n 1.2 samsucky

utter rubbish, Samsung is on a roll right now and they dont need to rig any tests for any reason they make ground breaking products. Also HTC aswell

The Intel tech is like a general blueprint for a new layout of chips and its parts and could be used for many different types of chips. Samsung has then used this idea/blueprint to try and develop and further their memory chip business. Intel on the other hand would naively use their idea to further develop their processor business, and etc... In comparison or example sort of think of this technology as a patent that is more of an idea that can be rolled out to make just about anything better.

many americans dont know this but samsung owns in just about anything electronic category outside the states. the monopoly they setup is quite impressive, shocking, and scary.
