@resistion: The article points out that Samsung is already shipping 3xnm DRAM... ahead of any others. If you are refering to my comment, I was not stating that Elpida was leading on any particular node; I think it's plenty interesting for Elpida if they keep near in time to whoever is leading, particularly if they can do so on a budget.

Thought Samsung already won 30 nm DRAM race. 35 nm to be exact. Elpida still playing catchup.

A common bias regarding Elpida indeed has been that they lag behind their rivals. Can they cost effectively keep things close? It'd be a big deal if they can do so in a business where it's *real* tough on you if you aren't number one.

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.
