I know they were starting to use 8T SRAM, that was a sign of problems for 6T. I assume the refresh controller will only refresh cells containing data. These could be sparse.

IBM has been using on chip eDRAM on its chips for more than a decade .

IIRC, refresh rate is lower for eDRAM, but not 0.

Refresh seems to consume about 0.5W.  The L4 latency is about half that of DDR channels, and the bandwidth about the same as 4 DDR4.  Typical hit rate 95% (that would be remarkably good in general, but maybe the gamer market is what they aim at where locality might be better).

Not clear this is better than a Memory Cube.  But probably much cheaper.

What is differenceof performance between Intel's L4 cache with eDRAM and regular DDR SDRAM on motherboard?

The DRAM will leak charge without a refresh, which requires power frequently every second. SRAM doesn't. Maybe SRAM doesn't sleep well enough anymore to conserve standby continuous power? What happened to near-threshold operation?

Interesting. The article only mentions "The eDRAM also required 1/5 of the keep-alive power compared with an SRAM device." Could you explain more about eDRAM's constant refresh and is that something that would be fixed someday, do you think?

Power saving is limited by constant refresh of eDRAM.

I'm curious to know what engineers' opinions are of the eDRAM. Techinsights has an interesting analysis of the technology here.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
