Code name alert, this time for a new way of doing main memory on PCs and related things. It is of course from Intel and SemiAccurate thinks it is a curious idea but one with potentially important uses.
The time frame is about 2-3 years from now, maybe a bit less if there is a large customer who wants it badly enough. Things start out with the tech used for the DRAM-free PCs but that doesn’t mean these devices won’t have DRAM, they could have it too. The underlying tech to support this change is in current chips and has been there since Sandy Bridge so the bugs have been worked out by now. On with the show.
