Resistion, I agree. There is some inconsistency. In the article, I reported what Elpida, UMC and Powertech said. But I really don't believe it. They may have a concept. They are not close to putting TSV in production. Elpida and UMC are full of hot air.

I was a little confused by this announcement, for two reasons. First, there were earlier comments that "TSVs not yet ready for prime time." Second, those more confident in TSVs would tend to support furthering its development over the next few years. Now we have this announcement, which is a third case, saying something like "we are ready to roll it out next year." A lot of inconsistency.

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.
