@sharps_eng: yes, you are right about the thermal challenges in the stack and this will have some limitations on the logic die. The hybrid memory cube site claims the memory cube will consume 70% less energy per bit than DDR3 DRAM memories but will deliver 15x the performance. This remains to be seen. MP Divakar

Aren't these things going to get pretty hot with certain patterns of usage and data? For instance if the access pattern does not allow the stacked devices time to cool off between bursts? The internal layers are short on cooling opportunities that's for sure. Perhaps they can rely on certain friendly usage patterns, with particular cache controllers and DMA engines in specific architectures etc.

Altera and Xilinx in the same consortium? Look for some delays in getting them to both agree on the same thing...

As quick as this gets developed, look for others to develop specs that are functional similar but available on a royalty-fee rather than royalty-free basis. I won't mention names...
