It's hard to imagine them "failing" to keep up costs when they have a pretty good track record of doing whatever it takes to compete.

Elpida's key problem is it lacks sub-6x nm technology. So it leaves chance for even Micron to overtake, not to mention Hynix and Samsung already ahead.

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.
