Chip Shot: Intel and ITRI Collaborate on Memory Research

Intel is starting a memory research project with the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) of Taiwan to address the performance gap and to reduce the power consumption of memory. The first project under the collaboration is focused on the future of memory technologies used in computing devices such as Ultrabooks™, laptops, tablets, and handhelds.  By creating memories with much greater energy efficiency, these mobile devices will be better equipped to handle the data-intensive applications of the future. Intel’s earlier collaborative work on memory has been productive and this new collaboration will allow key researchers to develop further innovations in interconnect and memory architecture with a particular focus on mobile computing devices.
