IBM has managed to speed up the performance of DRAM to speeds almost as fast as SRAM.  This, the say, will double the performance of the fastest processors eliminating the current bottlenecks associated with DRAM.

Their method involves producing a hybrid of SRAM and DRAM, by swapping out SRAM with DRAM.  The resulting memory is fast enough to be integrated on to processors. 

"A lot of people have been trying to do this," Su said. "As we look into the processor roadmap, this is one of the most difficult things to solve. We were basically memory-limited in the high-power processors, so this has been very significant for us."
