So assuming a june 2012 release, what does history suggest as the timeframe of widespread adoption in the PC industry.

Please tell me that RAMBUS is not a memeber of this working group! Also is RAMBUS going to be filing law suits against all manufacturers?

Is CRC going to impact latency or thruput? Would anyone use non-ECC memory architecture at these lithographies? Many questions...

@fdunn: I would be surprised if RAMBUS does not collect royalties for each DDR4 chip sold. With Qimonda gone, Micron and Elpida fading, we will be left with a Samsung-Hynix Korean duopoly. DDR4 may be the last JEDEC spec. Samsung and Hynix can just make their own spec and force it on the market.

Rambus left JEDEC years ago and then JEDEC proceeded to steal all of rambus patented designs. I will bet there's (stolen) Rambus tech in DDR4.

If there's Rambus tech being used in DDR4 they should get paid but Hynix and Micron has a history of stealing patented designs. Hynix paid a huge fine to DOJ and employees went to jail for it. Micron rolled over and got leniency even though they were the ring leader. Maybe DOJ one day will wake up and understand this but i doubt it, Micron has to many influential people in their pocket.

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.
