Reply to post: HBM?

SK Hynix boss predicts CPUs and RAM will merge, chipmakers will hold hands to make it happen



I thought HBM was designed to address this problem. You'll never be able to solve this problem generally via merging memory into the CPU, because different applications need different amounts of memory. The latest Intel Xeon Cascade Lake has "only" 38.5 MB of onboard cache. So, figuring out how to expand HBM seems to be a better expenditure of time, energy and money.
