Don't forget that these systems require massive amounts of high speed memory to keep the computing engine busy. This segment is a win-win for Micron where they can sell the processors AND the high-speed memory chips (and if the processor uses a significant amount of memory on-chip too, maybe it's a win-win-win)!

When I read this, the TOMI IP from Venray Technologies comes to my mind:

"What It Is

TOMI Technology enables CPU cores within commodity DRAM dies using existing DRAM transistors and unmodified DRAM processes."

Glad you guys got that SSL error all sorted!

 

And no, all I know is what's in the press release, which includes a link to a paper they presented at some conference - it has a pretty good explanation of the architecture

@chipmonk0 - Micron bought the remaining 38.6 percent of Ovonyx phase change memory tech from bankrupt ECD last August for just $12 million bit [dot] ly/1aNXcrl and they signed a technology agreement with Intel "regarding certain emerging memory technologies" some time before that.  So it is likely that this "non Von Neumann" is ECD's "Cognitive Computer".  Just google "Ovshinsky Cognitive Computer" for the details on that.  IBM has been working for some time on the tech so I'm curious to see what value was realized in that transaction.  The technology is brilliant.  Iif attainable, it can recognize a picture of Joe from logistics, a golden retriever or a laffer curve - or video for that matter.  Limitless.  Number Johnny Five sort of stuff.

As Chipmonk noted, Micron has long ttried to get a foot into the logic market where ASPs and margins are much bigger.

This is its loatest effort, but frankly I have seen many massively multicore architectures that were all so hard to program they never went anywhere. I have yet to see one succeed and as far as I can tell this is still very much an academic and lab experiment.

@TTY2 Are you familiar with the Micron Automata?

If so, tell us a bit about the internals of the architecture and its programming model.

I am curious to find out if there are other instances where a memory chip company is collaborating on the specific GPU/CPU architecture...

Interesting thoughts @chipmonk...I wonder whether Micron's move is part of a major transformation in the industry...certain types of data processing seems to be lending itself to graphical chips not traditional processors...these new processor will start eating away from revenue by Intel etc...how significant is that threat?
