In this paper, we briefly discuss a new proposed architecture, Computation-In-Memory (CIM) architecture, that targets specifically data-intensive applications. The architecture consists of the interwoven placement of computing and storage units, which are physically tightly integrated together inside a non-volatile memristor crossbar. The architecture has the potential of improving the energy-delay product, computing efficiency and performance per area by at least two orders of magnitude with respect to conventional CMOS architectures.
