<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Venray_Aurora.bmp” alt=”” width=”106″ height=”89″ />Whether you’re talking about high performance computers, enterprise servers, or mobile devices, the two biggest impediments to application performance in computing today are the memory wall and the power wall. Venray Technology is aiming to knock down those walls with a unique approach that puts CPU cores and DRAM on the same die. The company has been in semi-stealth mode since it inception seven years ago, but is now trying to get the word out about its technology as it searches for a commercial buyer.
