Would you please define "leaky" in this context?Because memory cannot keep up! Processors are leaky and that's why they evolve so fast.
Memory cannot be leaky, which is one of the biggest problems.
Yes, dram does use capacitors as opposed to sram which is only transistors. I didn't take into account that the capacitors may have some fixed amount of time which they need to be able to charge up every time they drain...My very uneducated guess is that it's because DRAM is more analog. CPU is just a bunch of transistors switching. DRAM is actually transistors and capacitors (that actually store the information). Charging up capacitors takes more time.
I don't understand why they still use capacitors. Are transistors really that much more expensive?
