We spent a little time checking out the Technology Showcase at IDF13 and spotted a number of cool pieces of hardware on the show floor we thought you’d like to check out. It seemed a number of popular memory manufacturers all got the same memo, as Crucial, Kingston and G.SKILL were all showing off DDR4 memory modules in their booths, among other existing memory and storage related products.          The focus in Crucial’s booth was clearly on DDR4 memory, which will eventually usher in higher clock speeds at lower voltages on the desktop. G.SKILL too was showing off some DDR4 memory modules, alongside an Ivy Bridge E based system rocking some...

Samsung says it's now mass producing what it claims is the most advanced DDR4 memory in the world. Built on 20nm-class process technology, Samsung's 16GB and 32GB DDR4 memory modules will find homes in enterprise servers and next-generation, large-scale data centers, the South Korean memory maker said. "The adoption of ultra-high-speed DDR4 in next-generation server systems this year will initiate a push toward advanced premium memory across the enterprise," said Young-Hyun Jun, executive vice president, memory sales and marketing, Samsung Electronics. "After providing cutting-edge performance with our timely supply of 16GB DDR3 earlier this year, we are continuing to extend the premium server... Read more...
Intel’s Skylake processors won’t launch for some time (the company still needs to release Broadwell at some point, which won’t be out until sometime next year at the earliest), but according to a leaked roadmap slide, we can see some juicy details about Skylake. The chips will be built on Intel's 14nm process node (which we’ll see first on Haswell-E processors), and they’ll also feature AVX 3.2. DDR4 support will be included, as well as support for PCIe 4.0, and Intel’s HD graphics will hit version 9 with reportedly significantly more robust performance. DDR4 memory will be out later this year and will offer far more density per module, twice the data rates,... Read more...
Micron on Thursday introduced its new M500 solid state drive (SSD) with terabyte-class capacity, an ultra-slim design, and increased response times compared to previous SSD products, all at an "affordable price point." The M500 SSD will be sold to consumers, businesses, and system builders under the Crucial brand, and to OEM customers under the Micron brand. So, how "affordable" is it? The 960GB M500 will initially sell for less than $600. That's a chunk of change, for sure, but well under a buck per gigabyte (62.5 cents per gigabyte, to be exact). Despite the high cost of entry for the flagship capacity, that's a pretty good value, as far as SSD pricing goes. Micron's SSD will also be available... Read more...
Is the world okay as-is with just DDR2 and DDR3 memory? Perhaps. We could get by, yes, but what about pushing the envelope? What about faster, faster, faster? Well, it's about time for memory to take the next major leap in speed. JEDEC, a known name in the development of standards for the microelectronics industry, today announced the initial publication of its widely-anticipated Synchronous DDR4 (Double Data Rate 4) standard. That's DDR4, for those keeping count, which will offer "a range of innovative features designed to enable high speed operation and broad applicability in a variety of applications including servers, laptops, desktop PCs and consumer products." To facilitate comprehension... Read more...
Lest anyone forget that Samsung dabbles in more areas than just displays, the technology guru has just begun sampling what it claims is the world's first 16GB double data rate-4 (DDR4), registered dual inline memory modules (RDIMMs), which at the outset are designed for use in enterprise class servers. Samsung said it's sampling both 8GB and 16GB DDR4 memory modules, which it produces using a 30nm-class process technology. These aren't the first DDR4 modules, however, as Samsung unveiled 2GB DDR4 memory sticks way back in December 2010. "By launching these new high-density DDR4 modules, Samsung is embracing closer technical cooperation with key CPU and server companies for development of next-generation... Read more...
DDR3 RAM is so ubiquitous, effective, and inexpensive that it’s sometimes easy to forget that there’s a new generation of memory coming. Actually, it’s coming quite soon; Micron announced that it has a polished DDR4 memory module that it’s been sampling, and volume production may begin before the end of the year for applications in 2013. Micron’s module is based on 30nm technology and will result in RDIMMs, LRDIMMs, 3DS, SODIMMs and UDIMMs. For now, Micron has a 4Gb DDR4 x8 module (x16 and x32 components are coming), which should initially offer speeds of 2400 Mb/s. Eventually, the modules will hit 3200 Mb/s. If you’re holding your breath for the first DDR4... 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 greater confidence in our cutting-edge green memory, particularly when we introduce four-gigabit (Gb)...

Recently, several big name memory companies have offered new "low-latency" DDR memory modules capable of running with brisk 2-2-2-5 timings at 400MHz.  Based on Samsung's latest low-latency ICs, these chips have demonstrated remarkable stability, compatibility and speed as well as the potential to overclock in excess of 500MHz DDR when relaxed latencies are used. One of the lesser known players in this field is PQI Designs.  Not long ago, PQI acquired PMI Memory, incorporating their Turbo Series brand into the PQI product line.  This has given PQI a much broader product line that includes performance memory as well as industrial strength flash storage solutions and other...

Corsair's XMS (Xtreme Memory Speed) memory modules have long been a favorite amongst the enthusiast community. Corsair has memory kits available in many different sizes and speeds, and all of them are regarded as some of the best modules available in their respective categories.  Unfortunately, with the demise of Winbond's BH5/BH6 chips, low-latency memory kits from Corsair (and other manufactures) virtually disappeared.  Low-latency memory offers better overall performance than similarly clocked memory with higher latencies.  Chips capable of much higher clock speeds quickly surfaced, but true low-latency memory was very tough to come by - until now.  Today on HotHardware,...
