Stack it up!

Squeezing more transistor on a slice of silicon cost too much. Since 2014/2015 the prediction of Moore that we would be seeing a decreasing cost per transistor on chips as they become smaller no longer holds true. However packaging more transistor in a chip remains a goal, since the more …

Faster than faster: Optane 800p

Last year Intel, 2017,  announced a memory based on a new technology, 3D XPoint (read 3D crosspoint), providing a faster, cheaper solution than NAND. Non volatile as DRAM (it does not lose its content when power is off) it seemed as a good replacement for NAND but not for DRAM. …
