Skyscraper-Style Chip Design Boosts Performance 1,000-Fold

For decades, engineers have designed computer systems with processors and memory chips laid out like single-story structures in a suburb. Wires connect these chips like streets, carrying digital traffic between the processors ...
MATsolutions' insight:

Engineers from Stanford and three other universities are developing new chip technology that may greatly increase computing. Past computer chips have used single-layer technology which has improved greatly over the years, but this new chip technology incorporates four layers in a single chip, speeding up performance while boosting efficiency.
