Scratch that. So does this mean DRAM performance is interconnect-limited?

in 1981, IBM was talking about a 6X6X6 cube having a terabyte of memory using bubble memory. Time to pull out some old drawings?

It is not clear to me what Intel, Micron and Samsung are doing. Are they trying to circumvent JEDEC? As far as 3-D solving PCM problems - not in this Universe!

This looks like a Samsung Micron challenge to the IBM-3M "Silicon Brick" (TM) project. http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4219712/IBM--3M-to-collaborate-on-3-D-chip-stacking This Chip-to-Brick or Chip-to-Cube approach now looks like the way forward. Among other things, for IBM and Samsung, it might be a way of solving any near term phase change memory (PCM) scaling problems and provide a cost effective way in which different memory and processor resources can be mixed, as, for all chip types, scaling fab costs rise and the cost of hybrid assembly becomes a reasonable alternative.
