Fancy yourself too cool for regular RAM that any ordinary Joe can get their hands on? Then what you're looking for is a kit made out of Northern White Rhinoceros hide or some other critically endangered species. Of course if you find one, it'll cost a king's ransom and you'll be letting the world know your moral compass is severely busted (note to PETA: we don't condone RAM made out of animals, though we do enjoy a juicy steak from time to time). We're already digressing, so let's get on point. Kingston Technology today announced a new HyperX Red Limited Edition memory series, so you can feel special... Read more...
Two of the major needs of mobile device components are lower power consumption and greater speed. Elpida Memory’s next-gen 4Gb Wide IO Mobile RAM and DDR3 Mobile RAM (LPDDR3) are designed to address both of these issues. The Wide IO Mobile RAM boasts 12.8GBps per chip at 200MHz by using the extra-wide x512-bit data width and a purported 50% drop in power consumption. Elpida’s new LPDDR3 memory offers twice the data rate as LPDDR2, at 6.4GBps or 12.8GBps depending on configuration, and claims it consumes 25% less power. Elpida will soon develop two-layer 8-gigabit and four-layer 16-gigabit... Read more...
If you spot a good deal on DRAM and could use an upgrade, you may want to pull the trigger rather than wait and hope prices will fall even further. According to Adata CEO Simon Chen, DRAM prices are likely to rebound in January 2012, mostly because of cuts in DRAM output made earlier in the year. The effects of those cuts are about to take effect, especially as PC makers get ready to replenish their inventories, Chen warns. Chen was also quick to point that Adata is one of two companies that kept a steady focus on DRAM modules (Kingston is the other), while most other companies shifted the bulk... 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...
Do you feel like your notebook is a little lean on RAM? If so, a new offering from AVADirect may be at the top of your holiday wish list. AVADirect has announced tested compatibility for 32GB RAM kits in over a dozen laptops from Celvo, MSI, and Asus. All of the compatible notebooks feature Intel's Sandy Bridge platform and offer 17.3 or 15.6-inch displays. Pricing will vary depending on the model and how much system RAM comes pre-configured by default. AVADirect Now Offers 32Gb of RAM In Clevo, MSI and Asus Gaming Notebooks AVADirect, a leading custom computer manufacturer, announces... Read more...
Concerned about voltage and SRAM? Your nerd card is approved. Fujitsu Semiconductor and SuVolta have demonstrated the ultra-low voltage operation of SRAM down to ~0.4V, which is just staggering in perspective. The low-voltage operation of SRAM (static random access memory) blocks down to 0.425V by integrating SuVolta's PowerShrink low-power CMOS platform into Fujitsu Semiconductor's low-power process technology. By reducing power consumption, these technologies will make possible the ultimate in "ecological" products in the near future. Technology details and results will be presented at the 2011...

Boasting, are we? Corsair has just announced that a new overclocking world record has been set. One that apparently shatters the previous memory frequency world record with a custom-built liquid nitrogen cooled system. The record? They hit a memory frequency of 1733.8MHz (DDR3-3467) using Corsair Dominator GT CMGTX6 extreme-performance DDR3 memory. World champion overclocker and Corsair employee Jake "Planet" Crimmins set the new record at Corsair's laboratory with a custom-designed, liquid nitrogen cooled PC based on an AMD FX-8150 processor and equipped with 1GB of Dominator GT extreme-performance...

System memory isn't the cause of your high energy bill at home -- check your fully loaded entertainment center instead -- but when it comes to servers and server farms, low power memory can have a real impact on a company's bottom line. It's the reason why memory makers develop so-called "green" memory, such as Super Talent's new Green-Line VLP These are low-profile, eco-friendly DDR3 memory modules featuring lower operating voltages. There are five new dual-channel kits in all, each one 4GB in capacity, rated at 1600MHz, and standing just 0.72 inches short, equal to a 39 percent reduction compared... Read more...
Ever heard of a "memory wall?" You have now, and evidently Micron and Samsung are working together to break it all down. Both companies are obviously big players in the memory space, and the two have launched the Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium, with the goal of accelerating Hybrid Memory Cube technology development and adoption. Hybrid Memory Cube is a revolutionary innovation in DRAM memory architecture that breaks through the memory wall, setting a new standard for performance, power efficiency, reliability and cost. The Consortium will bring together OEMs, enablers and integrators committed to... Read more...
Corsair just sent us word that its recently announced Special Edition Arctic White Vengeance Low Profile memory is now shipping and ready for purchase. This low profile kit operates at 1.35V and is aimed at ultra-quiet systems and other low-voltage applications that don't require obnoxiously loud cooling solutions. Each dual-channel 8GB DDR3-1600 kit contains "two rigorously-screened 4GB DDR3 DRAM modules," Corsair says, and the memory maker guarantees they'll run at 1600MHz with a tested latency of 9-9-9-24 or they'll give you a million dollars (wait, that can't be right, mostly because we made...

ReRAM? Yep, it's real, but it's not the kind of stuff you slap into a DIMM in order to run Photoshop with less lag. Samsung's working on a new and improved version of their rewritability and speed of resistance random access memory (ReRAM), which is said to be a next-gen nonvolatile memory. The real standout feature is that it can switch as fast as 10ns, which makes it perfect for nonvolatile working memory. That's around one million times faster than that of existing flash memory, just to give you a better idea. What does that mean for your future? It's hard to say right now. This is all quite...

Analyst firm IHS reports that chip supplier inventories have risen for the seven consecutive month. The continued rise in inventories reflects a general belief that consumer demand for electronic products will soon increase, though economic indicators are somewhat sketchy on this point. "Increases in stockpiles during the first quarter reflect efforts by semiconductor suppliers to rebuild inventory for products that were in short supply during the capacity crunch of 2010,” said Sharon Stiefel, analyst for semiconductor intelligence at IHS. “Suppliers also are moving to strategically...

With memory companies so focused on solid state drives these days, it's nice to see an old stalwart release new high-end memory kits. That's what we have with Crucial, who today announced two new product line additions to its popular Ballistix brand: Crucial Ballistix Tactical and Crucial Ballistix Elite. The Ballistix Tactical series takes aim power users, gamers, and enthusiasts by combining high frequencies with low latency settings. These will feature a black PCB, integrated heatspreader with a revamped Ballistix logo, and ship in both DDR2 and DDR3 form. Crucial's Ballistix Elite will only... Read more...
The braggarts over at Kingston Technology have reason to beat their chests and toot their own horns today. That's because Intel just crowned Kingston's ridiculously fast HyperX 2133MHz SO-DIMM 4GB notebook memory kits with its XMP certification, making these notebook modules the first and fastest to be validated, Kingston says. Adorned with Kingston's familiar blue heatspreaders, the company's 2133Mhz HyperX 4GB SO-DIMM (KHX2133C9S3K2/4GX) memory kits are tested at 2133MHz using CL9-11-9-27 timings at 1.5 volts. Kingston says it uses an ASRock HD65-MXM motherboard and Intel's second generation... Read more...
