I think TSV program had Micron collaborate with IBM but it is not mentioned. TSV are way forward for the chips to keep Moor's law alive without sacrificing on the price and technology. Its good to know that finally TSV is getting into mainstream.

Quite right, that delay is due to the slower hard drives not because of speed of RAM, but looking at that aspect present day RAM being used in average desktop is not limiting in terms of speed. May be these HMC will be more in demand for the servers. What desktops are required more is better and cost effective SSDs.

@Kinnar  I think this technology is intended to replace current RAM. The bottleneck in booting is the storage, either hard disks or SSDs which have to transfer their content to the RAM (which is much faster than storage).

This development should speed up calculations in running programs/applications a lot.

Memories are becoming very fast, 30Gbps Serial link will be able to load a 4GB Memory module in just one second it seems, does it really work that way? As the systems we use today it taking whole lot of time while booting.

Anyone know how Micron's version of stacked DRAM compares to the version Hynix is working on? Any news on Samsung's offering? Any others?
