I remember folks on this list suggesting that plugging a high-speed
interconnect into the memory slots on a standard PC motherboard might
be a good design. Well, seems that some Japanese researchers built a
prototype of exactly that, two years ago - 8 Gbps full-duplex, latency
around 100 ns:

a DIMM Slot" http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=825996
Seems interesting. Anyone know more? Has anyone commercialized it?
