    Extra bandwidth?

    Are you calling my band fat? Cheeky sods.

    Puzzle as independence - where possibility of placing a puzzle is determined by his neighbors. The guys in marketing don't care or I am missing the clu?

    The biggest winner here is AMD.

    Will be if they leverage this and many cores at a decent price, say in the new threadrippers

    IBM have just moved to this, if AMD can leverage this properly, they may bring competition to P9 and P10 processors in the small socket ranges.

    Re: Microchip SMC 1000 8x25G enables 4x bandwidth for CPUs

    So to minimise the pins needed on the socket, they're running a few high-frequency pins out to this northbridge and then many, low frequency tracks across the board to RAM? I guess SoCs were just a fad

    A DDRX-agnostic memory interface on chips could lead us back to motherboard manufacturers choosing which RAM type to support (i.e. choose between DDR3 or DDR4 boards, with the same CPU and a different northbridge).
