When I was at university (in the 80's), I am sure I remember some research into putting processing in memory to solve this bottle neck. I guess that did not come to anything, although specialist items such as CAM do a little of this. The nearest thing is probably the distributed RAM in FPGAs, allowing integrated processing.

When I started out every byte of memory was precious -- do you remember those old link-loaders that only loaded in the part of the program that was running at a particular time...?
