Remember the RowHammer memory attack from many moons ago?? Well, it's back in a new form despite numerous mitigations that memory manufacturers have put in place to prevent this style of attack.  A group of researchers from ETH Zurich and Vrije University in Amsterdam indicate that the series of Target Row Refresh (TRR) mitigations that were put in place after Rowhammer was first discovered have been bypassed. With RowHammer, an attack is perpetrated by "hammering" away at a single "row" of memory cells in a module until a bit-flip occurs in an adjacent row. This can cause the value of the data in the bits to change from 1 to 0 (or 0 to 1), leading to memory corruption or even... Read more...
According to HWBot, the world record for memory overclocking has fallen again. Christian Ney, a Swiss overclocker, hit DDR3-3736MHz with a 4GB G.Skill RipjawZ DIMM. He used liquid nitrogen to keep the processor and memory cool, down to -197 degree C both at idle and under load. The screenshots of CPU-Z tell the tale. The memory was set to timings of 11 (CAS), 13 (RAS to CAS delay), 13 (RAS precharge), 36 (tRAS cycle time). Ney’s rig consisted of the aforementioned G.Skill memory as well as an AMD A8-3870K processor, Voodoo3 2000 PCI (Avenger) graphics card, Gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H motherboard, 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD, and a 750W X-Series PSU.

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 from $67 for a 4GB kit to $163 for 8GB of Non-ECC in SODIMM form, and all of 'em should be on sale... Read more...
OCZ Technology thinks you need some new RAM, and if you're struggling to open yet another Firefox tab without seeing lots of lag, you just might. The company has just unveiled their Gold Series modules in 4GB and 8GB dual-channel kits. These are designed for both existing and next-generation platforms, and they run at 1333MHz CAS 9, operating at a low-voltage specification of 1.65 volts and are tested and qualified on the latest platforms to ensure ultimate performance and stability. Each module is backed up by a Lifetime Warranty,and they're optimized for P55, H55 and H57 chipsets. No pricing has yet been announced, but they should be on sale momentarily.

"Samsung" and "Green Memory" have actually been uttered in the same phrase before, and with more and more focus being put on just how much energy our computer memory consumes, it makes sense to see the company following up on their 30nm technology with this: the industry's first volume 40nm-class Gigabit DDR3.In other words, mass production has begun on this stuff, which promises to offer high capacities with lower power demands. More memory on fewer DIMMs? Sign us up. According to the company this 4Gb-based module "can save 35 percent in power consumption," and this  raises the amount of memory for use in servers to 32Gigabytes (GB) per module, which is twice the maximum density achieved...

Before long, you'll need a microscope to see the DIMM you're trying to install in your new gaming rig. Sure, we're exaggerating somewhat, but process technologies continue to shrink at a record rate. Micron has been making news lately with their advancements in NAND technology, and now the company has partnered with Nanya in order to unveil a new 42-nanometer DRAM process technology, with a 3X-nanometer process working in the lab.As you would expect, the new 42-nanometer process uses the more efficient and reliable copper metallization technology, and this device can produce a 2Gb memory module that provides lower power, higher-performance, greater density and smaller die sizes. In plain terms,... Read more...
Corsair, a company famous for keeping cutting-edge RAM popular amongst performance junkies, has just issued its newest DIMMs. After introducing us all to its new DDR3 modules for Lynnfield CPUs, the outfit has today introduced new 8GB and 12GB solutions for those with a 64-bit operating system and a nagging desire to have more RAM than they'll ever (probably) need. The new high-density devices play nice with Intel's Core i5 and Core i7 processors, and they're available in dual/triple channel configurations. The kits also feature the company's DHX+ cooling technology and American Racing Blue fins and highlights, though we don't suspect the design will matter much to you unless you've got a clear...

You've heard of memory, and you've heard of RAM. Heck, you may even know a thing or two about DIMMs. But have you any knowledge whatsoever on LRDIMMs? Those very modules are being unveiled today courtesy of Micron Technology, which has introduced the industry’s first DDR3 load-reduced, dual-inline memory module (LRDIMM). In short, these reduce the load on he server memory bus, thereby providing the option to support higher data frequencies and significantly increase memory capacity.If you're looking for the "wow-factor," here goes: the server memory module triples memory capacity and increases performance by 57%. We're not sure about you, but 57% sure sounds significant to us. The new LRDIMMs... Read more...
It may not be here as soon as we'd like it (you know, like yesterday), but Intel's Core i5 platform is definitely on the way. If you needed just one more modicum of proof, have a look at the latest blast from Kingston. Today, one of the mainstays in the memory industry announced that a pair of its 1333MHz DDR3 offerings have already been validated by Intel for "use in its upcoming Core i5 systems."We hate to read too far between the lines, but if Intel is already validating memory for its Core i5 platform, then Core i5 must be at least decently close to release, right? At any rate, the lucky modules in question are Kingston part numbers KVR1333D3S9/1G and 2G, both of which cleared hurdles on... Read more...
Samsung Electronics has finally put to good use its 4Gb low-power memory chips – the ones they had announced earlier this year - and begun shipments of their high-density 32GB DDR3 registered DIMMs.The modules are built on Samsung's own 50nm process, operate at 1.35V - slightly lower than the standard 1.5V - and the company hopes it'll meet the demand for less power-hungry hardware that currently drives the industry.According to the company the 4Gb DDR3 modules improve throughput by about 20 percent over a regular 1.5V DDR3, and pack a massive 72 memory chips plus register control (ie: 1 row of 8+1 stacks of 4 chips on each side of the DIMM), maximizing memory density and efficiency.Heat in datacenters,...

Some good info was sent to us by the folks at Xtreme Systems today. You extreme overclockers out there might want to be careful when running a high vdimm and a low vcore with Athlon 64 E die CPU, as you could end up ruining your processor. Those of you with OCZ's VX should take notice. "If you run a high vdimm and a low vcore with E die (revE, aka venice, san diego, manchester, toledo, newark, lancaster, denmark, venus, ..) you are running the risk of killing the cpu's. So if you have OCZ VX (or others) and you are not raising the vcore on your cpu you stand a chance of pumping a lot of current into the memory controller and causing permenant... Read more...
