Well, Samsung engineers have some guts to present "a paper." After all, Samsung lied that they would have a cell phone with phase-change memory by the end of June 2010 ( http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/newsView.do?news_id=1148 ). The "rumor" is that "as of July ... Samsung had yet to deliver engineering samples, largely because phase-change power consumption remains too high for handsets." ( http://spectrum.ieee.org/semiconductors/memory/resistive-ram-gains-ground ) Can't wait for "PCM Scalability:The Myth (Part 3)." It appears we are getting very close to the final end of the longest-running techno-Ponzi, the phase-change memory.

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.
