There goes Samsung, innovating on the memory front once again. The company has just started to mass produce 30-nanometer 32GB memory modules, which are said to be aimed specifically at the cloud computing and advanced server system market. Wanhoon Hong, executive vice president, memory sales & marketing, Samsung Electronics, had this to say about the announcement: "With this module, Samsung has secured the highest level of product and solution competitiveness in the DRAM market for PC, server and mobile applications. We also plan to ship more energy-efficient 4Gb DDR3 DRAM based on 20nm-class... Read more...
Faster, denser RAM may seem a bit boring at first glance, but it's hardly so. Faster memories make for faster computers, and new introductions in this sector lead to lower overall rates. Samsung has just revealed their newest product: 64Gb toggle DDR 2.0 NAND flash memory with a whopping 400Mbps transfer rate. The best part is that this isn't a pipe dream; this is reality, and it's already reaching the production stage. It's being called the industry's first production of a high-performance toggle DDR 2.0 multi-level-cell (MLC) memory chip, with the new module featuring a 64 gigabit (Gb) density,... Read more...
Plug-and-play, you say? Sounds good to us! Kingston Technology is back on the block with a new set of memory modules, and these are apparently even easier to get going than your average DIMM. They're the industry's first modules with Sandy Bridge-ready frequencies, and the plug-and-play nature utilizes JEDEC-compliant 1600MHz, 1866MHz values. The Hyper PnP series are designed specifically to work well with the second-generation Core i5 / i7 CPUs, and there's no BIOS tweaking needed. In addition, the modules are backwards compatible with previously released DDR3 systems on the market. Pricing ranges... Read more...
A high-performance gaming rig is only as strong as its memory, and G.Skill is one of the world leaders when it comes to high performance RAM. If you're in need of a memory boost, or you're building a new machine with performance in mind, the company's new Sniper series is worth a look. It's designed in ultra-low voltage, particularly 1.25V. That can save up to 10% on electricity drain, and it will also enable power-minded gamers to push the boundaries without too many overheating problems. Or, no overheating problems if you don't take things to the extreme. The kits that are shipping are rather... Read more...
Kingston's HyperX memory line has been sporting those trademark blue heatspreaders for as long as we can remember, and they still are, only now they've been updated a tad. The new look HyperX Genesis line now boasts a blue color heatspreader with a military/ballistic trim running across the top, similar to what you'd find on the Genesis Special Edition Grey modules designed for Intel's Sandy Bridge platform. Other than the new digs, the HyperX line is exactly as you remember it, right down to the SKUs. Part numbers and performance will remain the same, as will the frequencies. Kingston says it's...

Lookie here, more RAM! Earlier in the week, Kingston dished out new mobile memory. Today, it's the desktop side getting some attention. The company has just released their HyperX T1 Black DDR3 triple-channel memory kits, which are designed to work flawlessly alongside the Core i7-990X chipset and X58-based motherboards. The kits are available with 3 or 6 modules, with capacities up to 24GB. As usual, these new Black kits are totally down with overclocking, and should provide the best in performance. They'll arrive in 6GB, 12GB and 24GB kits with a 1600MHz DDR3 clock rate, and there's a video below... Read more...
'Tis the season...for new memory modules? Hot on the heels of a new HyperX release by Kingston, Corsair has just announced that their Cerulean Blue Vengence high-performance RAM modules are now on sale. These are DDR3 kits designed to make your system scream (and your wallet too), with blue heat spreaders that beg for a clear enclosure to show 'em off. The company claims that this memory line is perfect for performance junkies and those who just love to overclock, and they work well with Intel's new 2nd-gen Core family of processors. ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte motherboards are all checked off, and... Read more...
Kingston -- always looking to one-up the competition. Nothing wrong with that of course, but you best stay away from these guys if you hate things like "best, fastest and greatest." The company's newest memory modules aren't modest in the least. In fact, these newly released modules are hailed as the fastest notebook memory for Intel's Core Mobile CPU family (Huron River). They fall into the HyperX line of high-performance RAM sticks, and they support the newest, 2nd-gen Core Mobile processors. It's a 1600MHz SO-DIMM that's perfect for notebooks and Mini-ITX motherboards, with the company selling... Read more...
In lieu of our regularly scheduled episode of Two and a Half Geeks this week, we decided to feature a rather lengthy video we put together with our podcast host, Iyaz, for his show This Old Nerd, detailing the steps necessary to assemble a system from start to finish. One of Marco’s incredibly cute daughters also makes a few surprise cameos throughout the vid if you pay attention to what’s going on in the background... For many of you HotHardware regulars, this video may be a bit elementary, but if you’ve never built a system before or have friends or family thinking about taking... Read more...
The DRAM market isn't exactly raining down riches on memory makers at the moment, but apparently there's still money to be made, and not always on the home consumer side. Kingston, which plays both sides of the field (desktops and servers), just announced that its ValueRAM Server Premier series of DDR3 has been independently validated for use with Super Micro Computer server boards. "System builders and integrators have long used Super Micro's high-quality server boards in a multitude of platforms," said Hanni Eid, ValueRAM server business manager, Kingston. "Our Server Premier line offers unique... Read more...
Are you a hardcore overclocker? Do you never settle for factory, always pushing your gear to the absolute limit? If so, this record will most likely interest you. The Corsair Dominator GT was just used in a world record breaking journey. The DDR3 memory was the memory of choice when used to shatter the MaxxMem benchmark record with Intel's 2nd-generation Core family of processors. Yeah, Sandy Bridge! Renowned extreme overclockers “splmann,” aka Roger Tanner, and "Mat", aka Matthias Zronek, posted a list-topping score of 2711.5 marks running at 1,148 MHz at CL7-7-6-21 at 1T. "We’ve... Read more...
Consumers may see the end-product side of Samsung the most. Things like Samsung notebooks, Samsung HDTVs, Samsung hard drives. But Samsung is actually much more than what you see at Best Buy. The company has huge investments in the memory sector, and it's clear by the sheer quantity of news coming out of their semiconductor department that the gears really are turning. This week, the company announced the development of the industry's first DDR4 DRAM using 30nm-class technology. Dong Soo Jun, president, memory division, Samsung Electronics noted the following: "The new DDR4 DRAM will build even... Read more...
People always say how you can't have your cake and eat it too, but what good is a slice of delicious cake if you can't cram down your throat? Not any good at all if you ask us, and though we don't recommend feasting on sticks of RAM (not in the literal sense, anyway), Corsair's latest memory kit is a prime example of why you shouldn't pay attention to silly sayings. Proving that low voltage doesn't have to translate into low performance, Corsair today announced the launch of a new 4GB Dominator GT memory that's "highly overclocked" to 2133MHz, yet only requires 1.5V. Not too shabby, and neither... Read more...
The "green" movement isn't going quite as strong as it used to be in consumer electronics, but Samsung is definitely still onboard. The company today announced the development of an eight gigabyte (GB) registered dual inline memory module (RDIMM) based on its advanced Green DDR3 DRAM. The new memory module, which has just been successfully tested by major Samsung customers, delivers superior performance, in particular because of its use of a three-dimensional (3D) chip stacking technology referred to as 'through silicon via' (TSV). An 8GB RDIMM utilizing Samsung’s 3D TSV technology saves... Read more...
