    MOSY 12 lane RAM ‘super highway’

    The problem?
    The HDD makes DRAM look like a speed demon it is soooo dreadfully slow
    Think Mother of All Paradigm Shifts!!!
    Insist on Cymer!!!!!

    MOSY has spent the last 5 years entrenched in finding a solution to the relationship between the processor and the DRAM memory on a motherboard. The problem we have is that the processor doubles in speed every 18 months (Moore's Law), think Pentium 1, 2, 3 etc., while the DRAM memory doubles in speed every 10 years (approximately). The DRAM can't handle all the data being sent to it from the processor. This creates a bottleneck in a network, computing architecture and has been a brain drain for thousands of engineers over the past decade.

    The past five years has seen two generations of its Bandwidth Engine system on a chip being developed which incredibly fixes the bottleneck and turns the path from the processor to the DRAM from a single lane highway to a 10-12 lane super highway (video of Bandwidth Engine). This will change the way networks run as the next generation of routers design in this revolutionary chip. I have spoken to numerous engineers and they have told me that this chip is badly needed and that it would be revolutionary. MOSY isn't going it alone as they have partnered up with three well known and respected semiconductor companies Xilinx Inc (XLNX), Altera Corp (ALTR) and Avago Technologies Ltd (AVGO). Together they have formed a consortium to push this chip to become an industry standard. Clearly Len isn't cavalier in his approach as he's bringing in the big guns to support his approach.
