IBM and 3M team up to create 3D chips

    The idea is to stack chips, as many as 1000, and separate the individual slabs of silicon with a heat conducting adhesive.

    I had a very similar idea back in 2006. I'm glad to see it happening. I'm sure it substantially increases production costs though.

    Ah this again. Would like to see some 4D chips. It's like when a cpu already finishes calculations before it gets instructions. Now that'd be really cool.
