A Japanese reminiscence startup that has been lurking within the shadows for greater than a decade has simply emerged with a bang. Neo Semiconductor introduced that it desires to provide DRAM chips which can be 8x denser than the present crop – 16Gbit DRAM – utilizing a know-how referred to as 3D X-DRAM. 

Because the title hints to, there will probably be layers of fabric, 230 in whole for now, serving to it produce a 128Gbit DRAM chip. As compared, Samsung is aiming to launch a 32Gbit DDR5 DRAM chip in 2023 with 1TB reminiscence modules on the horizon.
