Samsung's DRAM rivals are in trouble. Samsung is simply outspending the competition. As reported, the company now plans to spend 11 trillion won ($9.6 billion) on expanding semiconductor production and 5 trillion won ($4.3 billion) on boosting LCD manufacturing. But now, Elpida, Hynix, Micron and Taiwan Inc. are also boosting their capital spending. Business is good now. What happens when the downturn hits? Some think Taiwan DRAM makers will survive over the long term. Some think Hynix won't. Thoughts out there?

Samsung is now at 35 nm in DRAM, right? Rivals won't come close for a while...I think Elpida Hynix and Micron could be dropping further behind as they are just starting to do 4X nm.

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.
