Micron’s 320GB/sec Hybrid Memory Cube comes to market in 2013, threatens to finally kill DDR SDRAM

Quote:
The Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium, which consists of such silicon luminaries as Micron, Samsung, and IBM (but not Intel), has finally finished hammering out the Hybrid Memory Cube 1.0 standard. The HMC is a complete paradigm shift away from conventional DDR1/2/3 SDRAM sticks (DIMMs), offering up to 15 times the performance of DDR3, while using 70% less energy. Just to whet your appetite, HMC 1.0 has a max bandwidth of 320GB/sec to a nearby CPU or GPU – PC3-24000 DDR3 SDRAM, on the other hand, maxes out at just 24GB/sec.

It would probably labeled as DDR5 or something sometime in the future.

iirc DDR5 is already a standard, used in video cards.

Yeah your right. That technology is different from SDRAM so they definitely have to call it something else.

Yeah, it's actually GDDR5, GPU memory, but they wouldn't choose that name. I'm sure they'll want to differentiate. A Guy

I had heard rumors of something similar a couple of years ago. In that new-design memory would replace L1, L2, L3 and SDRAM. The entire memory core would be so fast that cache segments wouldn't be needed. The CPU could access all of memory nearly instantaneously. Projections back then hovered around 100x current memory speeds. This, of course, would probably mean that the CPU and memory would come as one unit. I think this why we're seeing a lag in CPU speeds. A 3GHz processor was common place 8 years ago. The manufacturers are simply adding more cores/threads. Hardware still can't keep up with the 3-4GHz clock speeds. The price gap between processors and motherboards will continue to widen. Probably why Intel is getting out of the MB business.

Watch for other monumental designs also. Channel speeds of 24-32GB/s will be as slow as HDDs are to SSDs now. Boot times will be in milliseconds and programs will start before you can get your finger off a button. Displays and humans will continue to be the bottleneck in system speed.

15 times the performance with 70% less energy?
Those are some pretty amazing figures. Bring it on!!
