re: Can DDR3 save the DRAM industry?

One company has already moved to DDR3 for its notebooks: Apple. Desktops are next. Memory manufacturers hope for a quick transition to DDR3, because DDR3 modules for PC's are priced about 2.0 to 2.5 times higher than DDR2 modules. As for "saving the DRAM industry," certainly not all of the companies should be saved. Forcing the weak companies out of business or into mergers, rather than being bailed out by governments, would help reduce competition in the industry.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
