Yes, I think that was it.

Doesn't use channels as we understand them.  Uses a system they are 
calling "fiber" but which is essentially a mesh probably similar to 
what you described (if I understood what he was talking about).  One 
of the slides he showed was about latency and compared SSDs that we 
know now with an intermediate Intel product with 0.1 x latency of 
SSDs, then this NVDIMM thing with 0.01 or less the latency of current 

Since I have no computer science background this is all quite 
fascinating to me.

They are looking for programmers to work in this "High Performance 
Computing Division" in Longmont.
