Google Study: Could those errors be caused by design flaws?
The conclusions of the extensive Google study “DRAM Errors in the Wild: A Large-Scale Field Study” revealed that memory failures in the field were far more prevalent than advertised and that no specific conclusion could be reached with regards to the source of the errors. When this study was performed, the ability to do real time monitoring of the actual DDR memory was limited, difficult and somewhat costly. Since then the industry has evolved and new technology now exists that can take the Google study to the next level.
