Report Addresses the Perils of Dark Silicon

July 21, 2016

Dark silicon refers to the processing potential that's lost when thermal constraints disallow full CPU utilization. The gap between transistor scaling and voltage scaling combined with tighter integration of components (multicore, SoCs) has power density ramifications that are of particular concern for embedded computing, but high-performance computing faces similar "dark power" challenges. Bringing attention to this issue and exploring common solutions was the goal of the Dagstuhl Seminar 16052, “Dark Silicon: From Embedded to HPC Systems.” Read more…

IBM Puts 3D XPoint on Notice with 3 Bits/Cell PCM Breakthrough

May 18, 2016

IBM scientists have broken new ground in the development of a phase change memory technology (PCM) that puts a target on competing 3D XPoint technology from Intel and Micron. IBM successfully stored 3 bits per cell in a 64k-cell array that had been pre-cycled 1 million times and exposed to temperatures up to 75∘C. A paper describing the advance was presented this week at the IEEE International Memory Workshop in Paris. Phase-change memory is an up-and-coming non-volatile memory technology... Read more…
