Future AMD processors may get denser caches

Posted on Monday, May 18 2009 @ 21:25:30 CEST by

The Tech Report writes Globalfoundries has announced a joint development agreement with T-RAM to bring Thyristor-RAM embedded cache memory to advanced technology nodes:
Thyristor-RAM will find its way into GlobalFoundries' 32nm and 22nm processes in both bulk-silicon and silicon-on-insulator flavors. If what AMD told us last November is still accurate, GlobalFoundries will start ramping its 32nm bulk process in the fourth quarter of this year, with the 32nm SOI variant to follow in the first quarter of 2010.

T-RAM's denser embedded memory tech "has the potential to enable much larger on-chip cache memories," GlobalFoundries tells us. Also, Thyristor RAM "shows promise for other applications, such as system-on-chip designs for netbooks, smartphones, and other mobile devices."
