With computer chips growing in ability its just a matter of time until we get super computers the sizes of cell phones!
IBM's 1997 Deep Blue supercomputer is slower than a Galaxy S5.

3d nand has been used for SSD for a few years now.
I'm not sure what the article is getting at, but it seems using 3d nand as an l3 cache is a possibility?
Oh I see now they will use a micro modular design instead of separating the memory to a designated separate space. Decreases latency and space with the 3d stacking design. Sounds pretty cool.
NAND flash never should be used as a cache because of limited write cycles.
The above table gives a good summary of how durable the 850 Pro really is. Even if you write 100GiB (GB in Windows is really GiB, i.e. 1024^3 bytes) per day with a write amplification of three, the smallest 128GB model will last for over seven years.
