6 Ghz SRAM Memory Introduced By IBM

A new state of the art SRAM chipset is responsible for this achievement. The 6 GHz speed is almost twice the speed of today's SRAMs. SRAM's usage is to hold frequently accessed data used by the processor. The faster the access, the faster the data transfer from SRAM to CPU.

Its been a long time effort for researchers to be able to overcome the process variability, especially variations that occur when a device is used in conjunction with other devices in an array making it possible for data to be lost. IBM researchers have come up with a novel hardware-based solution in order to reduce or even correct all problems problems and improve performance for various applications by using 8T SRAM arrays.Source: FudZilla

Wasn't it rumoured when the K10 (K9 as it was erroneously referred to) was first ... rumoured that AMD would be using this? IBM certainly mentioned this before, a fair length of time ago.

now just think if they would use that technology to make a CPU the PC industry would have a legitimate third option.

Now its a reality, then it was just in the draw boards.

Doesn't the PS3's Rambus XDR RAM run at 6.4 Ghz?

EDIT: Sorry, it has a data throughput of 6.4 GB/s per lane, or 51.2 GB/s at 16x on the PS3 at 400Mhz, my mistake :p

Sweet. I remember hearing about this and that AMD was going to be using it. If Im not mistaken, they were working on this together.
