It's an L3, so that's DDR *sram*, not DDR SDRAM. Another system using
similar srams are recent Alphas. Needless to say they're expensive and
small, because they're much faster than SDRAMs. They aren't as good as
on-CPU caches, though, as their cycle times aren't that good and don't
scale up with the cpu.
