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 features in addition to being fully AVL-validated and compatible with these builds. To make it easier... Read more...
If you're an enthusiast, there's a high likelihood you're enjoying the primary benefit of 64-bit computing, that being gobs of memory space to work or play with.  We do a bit of heavy lift around these parts, crunching video and the like, and at the end of the day it literally pays to have a lot of memory at our disposal.  Most times, heavy-duty multitasking isn't just a requirement, it's more like attention deficit disorder; yeah we probably need to seek help but what a way to go.  Regardless, 12GB systems are becoming commonplace in the lab now here at HH and with a triple-channel X58 setup, filling up all six of those memory slots with 2GB sticks just seems impractical and inefficient. ...

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 are the timings: 9-11-9-27. In other words, you can have your cake and eat it too. Corsair says its... Read more...
We just can't help it: Bruce Willis comes to mind when we think of Corsair's latest memory. But we're sure the same is true for any Die Hard fan. Why? The company's newest memory is called Vengeance, and it's no laughing matter. The new module is optimized for overclocking, compatibility, and affordability, with these new DDR3 sticks marketed towards "enthusiasts and system builders." They're designed to work with both Intel and AMD platforms, and they have a 1.5V supply voltage. They're available in single, dual, or triple module kits, with sizes ranging from 4GB all the way up to 16GB, and all Vengeance modules are equipped with aluminum heat spreaders for thermal performance as well as aggressive...

Perhaps we're dating ourselves here, but 'back in the day' your choice of memory had a direct impact on your system's overclockability. Save for extreme overclockers with fancy LN2 setups and aspirations of setting world records, RAM isn't nearly as important anymore, but until you can punch the power button on a RAM-less PC and still have it boot up, you're going to see memory makers continue to crank out new kits. One of the latest comes from Patriot Memory, which just announced its DDR3 Viper Xtreme Series. "Patriot has been offering some of the fastest performance memory solutions in the world, and our Viper Xtreme series delivers a high-end solution with a custom heatshield built around...

Believe it or not, this isn't the first time we've heard the words "green" and "RAM" used in the same sentence. Frankly, it's kind of hard to believe that memory could actually be friendly to the environment, but when it's the buzzword of the year, major companies have little choice but to throw it in wherever it'll fit. Samsung Electronics has announced today the industry’s first 30-nanometer-class DRAM, which has just successfully completed customer evaluations in two gigabit (Gb) densities. DDR3 is becoming ever more popular as more and more motherboards opt to support it and these next generation platforms, and Samsung claims that their "30nm-class process technology will provide the most...

This year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas was a little dry in spots, partly because so many companies decided to pre-announce there latest and greatest products weeks before the show.  That said, there are a select few manufacturers that like to keep some of the good stuff bottled up until showtime, so that there's at least a little extra mojo that makes the trip out west worth while.  One of those manufacturers that likes to hold a little something back for the show is OCZ.  This year for OCZ looks to be a bit more focused on their core memory business, though it's not of the DRAM variety so much as NAND Flash.  In fact, though we're sure there must have been a DDR3...

If recent technology news is any indication, Samsung has taken the concept of spending innovating one's way out of a recession and is running with the ball for all it's worth. We discussed the company's plans to move ahead with 450mm wafer production a few days ago; news today indicates the electronics manufacturer will invest $790 million into upgrading its DRAM production facilities in the second half of this year. Samsung believes the shift to a smaller process technology will improve production productivity (dies-per-wafer) by up to 60 percent, assuming equal yields. That cost savings eventually gets passed on to consumers, while the smaller process should theoretically allow for cooler,... Read more...
