    Marsavian did you say 23.60 sends us higher?

    ???? What do you see? TIA

    • I did indeed and I said the stock would move more freely above it which it is now doing. 23.56 was the highest moving average left to take out (350 DMA) and that was done today and I have looked out as far back as the 600 WMA ~ 3000 DMA in this regard. The last recent fixed resistance point left was 23.64 and that was taken out too and notice how it quickly became firm support. All that is left now is to retrace the old resistance points of 24, 24.5, 25, 25.5, 26, 26.5,27 and then it's 28, 29 and free air. This won't happen straight away but when all the short term moving averages catch up with the current price ( e.g. 25, 50,100,150, 200 DMA) this will add to the upward pressure and force the issue. For the long suffering Longs it gets to be fun now ;-).

        Can one assume that Intels eDRAM (based on TriGate I suppose) shows similar power/performance advantages compared to planar LPDRAM?
        SK Hynix said it expects DDR3L-RS memories to be specified for Ultrabook and tablet computers.

        The proportion of the ultrathin shipments in the laptop market is expected to be 11 percent in 2012 and 39 percent in 2014 and 52 percent in 2015, said SK Hynix referencing market research firm IHS-iSuppli as its source.........
        Translation: Haswell will use embedded DRAM (eDRAM). And rather than source the memory from a third-party supplier, Intel will build it in-house using its own 22-nm fabrication process.

        Kanter apparently got his hands on the paper early, because his article includes an in-depth comparison of Intel's eDRAM and the eDRAM found inside IBM's POWER processors. My eyes glazed over a little at that point, but the main takeaway wasn't hard to grasp. Intel seems to have made some design choices that favor yields over performance and density—not entirely surprising, considering how much cheaper Haswell will be than IBM's high-end POWER CPUs. Still, Kanter expects Haswell's eDRAM to be very fast, essentially like a "bandwidth optimized L4 cache."

        The article also points out that Intel's (re-)entry into the memory business may pose an indirect threat to large DRAM makers like Samsung and Hynix. Intel probably won't jump into the commodity DRAM market, since the margins there are razor-thin. However, as Kanter points out, Haswell's eDRAM-equipped GT3 integrated graphics are supposed to be as fast as a discrete GeForce GT 650M—and the GT 650M often ships with a couple gigs of DDR3 RAM. Once Haswell comes out, memory makers may lose out on business from lower-end discrete GPUs like the GT 650M, since those won't be needed anymore.
