    Magnificent Memory -- IBM announced a major breakthrough in microchip design that will more than triple the amount of memory contained on a single high-end chip. With the advent of multi-core chips, memory has become an increasingly critical aspect of microprocessor performance. This prototype eDRAM, or Embedded Dynamic Random Access Memory chip, contains over 12 million bits and high-performance logic. It will be available in IBM products beginning next year.
