Hardware, Embedded Systems "The CPU design firm Venray Technology announced a new product design this week that it claims can deliver enormous performance benefits by combining CPU and DRAM on to a single piece of silicon. We spent some time earlier this fall discussing the new TOMI (Thread Optimized Multiprocessor) with company CTO Russell Fish, but while the idea is interesting; its presentation is marred by crazy conceptualizing and deeply suspect analytics."

Yeah. But this processor is on the same chip as the DRAM. So it has very wide bus that connects it to the DRAM (4096 bits). However, I guess it's still subject to the same latencies.

It's a bit like the Cell's SPEs and I guess it will be as hard to program for.
