Micron said it's begun sampling next-generation 16-nanometer processing technology, enabling the industry's smallest 128-gigabit multi-level-cell NAND flash memory devices. This isn't just a big achievement in the flash industry, but it's also the most advanced processing node for any sampling semiconductor device, Micro claims. "Micron's dedicated team of engineers has worked tirelessly to introduce the world's smallest and most advanced Flash manufacturing technology," said Glen Hawk, vice president of Micron's NAND Solutions Group. "Our customers continually ask for higher capacities in smaller... Read more...
Microsoft’s Surface Pro appeared on Best Buy’s website today, complete with an Ivy Bridge processor and your choice of 64GB or 128GB of storage. The lower-capacity tablet rings in at $899.99, and the 128GB model is priced at $999.99, so you’re looking at $100 to double the storage. Keep in mind that part of that storage is dedicated to the OS itself, as we discussed earlier in the week. The Surface Pro is expected to be available on February 8th, so it’s not that surprising to see it appearing on Best Buy’s site at this point. However, Best Buy is already planning... Read more...
Feel like getting drunk with DRAM? Want to have the ultimate memory bragging rights? If you look up the definition of "overkill" in the dictionary, do you want to see a picture of your motherboard in there? Answer 'yes' to all three questions and you're a prime candidate for MSI's X79A-GD45 (8D) motherboard, a slice of silicon with support for an insane amount of quad-channel memory, or more specifically, up to 128GB. No, that's not a typo, at least not on our part. According to MSI, this board's eight DIMM slots support up to 128GB of RAM, likely far more than you'll ever need for the life of... Read more...
If there is any doubt that Solid State Drives (SSDs) are the next medium for laptop storage, then don't tell the folks over at Samsung. They probably won't have time to take your call anyway, because they're busy ramping up production of Samsung's 128GB SSDs in both 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch form factors. This is in addition to the 64GB SSDs that Samsung ramped up production on only a few days earlier. The Samsung SSDs use Multi-Level Cell (MLC) technology, which according to Wikipedia is:"MLC NAND flash is a flash memory technology using multiple levels per cell to allow more bits to be stored as...
