20. A system, comprising:
a package substrate;
an interposer on the package substrate;
a memory stack that includes multiple vertically stacked dies mounted on the interposer; and
a main die that is mounted on the interposer and that comprises switching circuitry configurable to selectively access different dies of the memory stack based at least in part on a bandwidth utilization metric and a temperature of the vertically stacked dies in the memory stack.
