Microsoft joins Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium to develop new DRAM standard

Intel unveiled its Hybrid Memory Cube at IDF late last year, and there’s already an alliance dedicated to standardizing and implementing the technology. Now Microsoft wants in on the action: the outfit just announced that it will lend its clout to the Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium. To jog your memory, HMC technology promises seven times the efficiency of current DRR3 memory modules and is being vaunted by Intel et al. as the solution for monster systems requiring lower power usage and higher bandwidth. Redmond’s joining a well-attended party; IBM, Micron, Samsung and many others are already members of the consortium.
