The case for cold DRAM in the data center

Cryogenic, superconducting digital processors offer the promise of significantly reduced operating power for server-class computing systems. This is due to the exceptionally low energy per operation of Single Flux Quantum circuits built from Josephson junction [...]

Part 2: DRAM goes cryogenic

In part one of this series, Rambus Chief Scientist Craig Hampel told Semiconductor Engineering’s Ed Sperling that cryogenic DRAM (below minus−180 °C or 93.15 kelvin) offers numerous power and performance advantages. These include increased transistor [...]

Part 1: DRAM goes cryogenic

Rambus Chief Scientist Craig Hampel recently spoke with Ed Sperling of Semiconductor Engineering about the power benefits and performance advantages of running DRAM at extremely low cryogenic temperatures (below minus−180 °C or 93.15 kelvin). “When [...]

PC World: Microsoft’s cool quantum computing plan embraces cryogenic memory

PC World’s Agam Shah reports that Microsoft is working with Rambus to develop and build prototype computers with memory subsystems that can be cooled at cryogenic temperatures, typically below minus 180 degrees Celsius or minus [...]

TIRIAS Research analyzes Rambus’ cryogenic memory initiative

Earlier this week, Rambus confirmed that it is expanding ongoing collaboration with Microsoft researchers to develop prototype systems which optimize memory performance in cryogenic temperatures. Commenting on the announcement, Jim McGregor, principal analyst and founder [...]

EE Times highlights Rambus’ cryogenic computing research

Junko Yoshida of the EE Times reports that Rambus, in collaboration with Microsoft, will have an early prototype of cryogenic memory in a month – and a more complete prototype by the end of the [...]

A closer look at Rambus’ cryogenic memory collaboration with Microsoft

Rambus and Microsoft are currently researching various opportunities to optimize memory and interface solutions for operation at cryogenic temperatures for future generation data centers. As per Moore’s Law, memory systems have achieved exponential improvements in [...]

Rambus expands cryogenic memory collaboration with Microsoft

Rambus is expanding its collaboration with Microsoft researchers to develop prototype systems that optimize memory performance in cryogenic temperatures. Following the initial collaboration announced in December 2015, this new agreement extends joint efforts to enhance [...]
