Is the Future of DRAM Memory a Cube?

The recently completed, annual Hot Chips conference in Stanford threw up a number of interesting developments in computer memory and computer processing. As usual, the event was attended by key names in the memory industry and a number of new products revealed. One of the most interesting breakthroughs was presented by Micron, a memory manufacturer who announced that it has developed a hybrid cube DRAM chip.

DRAM (dynamic random access memory) is one of the key components of any machine whether a laptop, desktop, personal computer or work machine. When a specification lists 1GB or 2GB PC memory or Apple memory, it is usually referring to amounts of DRAM.

The Micron announcement has created a new buzz about memory upgrades as the product is the first ever to use a cube construction to stack layers of memory one on top of the other. This method of organizing memory has never been commercially used before and works in a unique way - the position of the layers creates paths of interconnecting sections, allowing for higher data density and higher data throughput.

Although the Hot Chips conference routinely premiers groundbreaking new memory and storage products, the Micron demonstration was particularly interesting as the manufacturer was able to demonstrate data transfer speeds of 128 gigabytes per second. As anyone who has ever contemplated a RAM upgrade out of sheer frustration with slow computing will know, this promises to significantly alter the speeds of common functions.

A discussion about general advancements in RAM speeds followed, suggesting more manufacturers will be snapping at the heels of Micron as they continue their development of the new memory chip.
