EE Times writes TSMC is rolling out 65nm embedded DRAM for NVIDIA.
The graphics firm used the process for its latest mobile GPU, the foundry said Tuesday. TSMC's 65nm embedded DRAM process and IP shrinks the cell and macro size by nearly 50 percent compared to its previous generation. The foundry is targeting the higher bandwidth offered by the embedded DRAM at applications such as game consoles, high-end networking, digital consumer, and multimedia processors.

The embedded DRAM allows for some of the key power-saving tricks being tapped by designers today, including sleep mode, partial power cut-off and on-chip temperature compensation, while also improving data retention time.
