Re: new for Micron?

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 ?
