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?

Wonder how HMC differs from e-DRAM

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.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
