Here we are Thunderman...

Look at this....

Now tell me Intel copied AMD on this one too.

The trouble is it will proberly take time to come out...

Impressive none the less

^ Cool! maybe one day we shall see the integration of CPU, GPU and RAM...

Now, I'm no thunderman. But this is pretty much identical/is the eDRAM that IBM was touting off about 1-2 years ago.

This isn't a new idea. The main issue was with the speed of the DRAM compared to SRAM. You don't want to kill your performance for simple area scaling.

Until you see it for sale, treat this just like it is -- research.

I do not want integrated RAM/GPU/CPU unless it increases performance and is cheaper. I like competition.

Don't worry. This is just mainly for the business PCs. Although DRAM on the chip package would probably give a speed boost.

I guess you figure Tman would come up with something like this

Yup, kind of looks like Intel is copying AMD again.
(The only difference is, Intel may actually use it)

We have gotten this far in computing processing power by innovation etc, but until now that the major two are using almost the same technology ideas to get our computing faster..Every on treads on each others toes to get the answer.

True quad cores when they are supported are out by AMD and soon by Intel, on board memory controllers, build in video cards and now built in memory..

All we need now is a built in flash hard disk and we will able to play or work on a joypad with the lot all built in...

I recon in 5 years we will have a 200gb solid state disk with built in hi end video card and processor with 4gb of ram on a single chip...

Now that is the future...

Any further visions of whats to come on a postcard please !!!
