Samsung has figured out a way to stack DRAM modules on top of each other, which should eventually lead to—you guessed it—faster and more efficient memory. Separately, it’ll also permit Samsung to create 4GM RAM modules, which is a first. The new technique is called wafer-level-processed stacked package, or WSP, which essentially lets Samsung snap memory modules onto each other without leaving a space in between. RAM produced in this manner can reach speeds of up to 1.6 gigabits per second.
There’s nothing quite like a “better, faster” RAM story to lighten up these Mondays.
