IBM Sets Memory Chip Speed Record

"IBM on Wednesday announced new chip technology that the company says dramatically boosts access times using embedded dynamic access memory. The new design could point to future battles with Intel, whose static random access memory chips currently dominate the market.

IBM's new eDRAM technology, according to the company, improves on-processor memory performance in about one-third the space with one-fifth the standby power of conventional SRAM (static random access memory).

This is important because it lets IBM increase the size of its cache, which in turn improves a microprocessor's cache miss rate."
