Now that Micron is enjoying higher stock price ( quadrupled this year ) after they were able to affect the supply - demand situation for DRAMs in their favor by acquiring Elpida at bargain basement price, its time for them to at last diversify into higher margin products like processors.

Would be interested to find out process integration issues of mixing CPU and SRAM, DRAM on the same die, or they might be trying out their HMC technology for tight coupling of CPU and SRAM / DRAM on separate dice.

Comments ? speculation ?

Because it's based on memory, the computation components are basically interleaved in the memory so that you get enormous parallelism

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.
