I suspect the difference is related to chip stacking and that multiple 4G chips are stacked to may one final commercial memory module. . . .

It seems odd to me that Samsung's 4Gb array of cells each of which store 3 bits multiplies out to 32Gb. 4Gb x 3 = 12Gb. My understanding is that each cell of a 3 bit/cell memory stores 8 levels but that this is still only equivalent to 3 bits. How can Samsung and other MLC manufacturers get away with what seems to be deceptive labeling?

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.
