Although information has been floating around for ages and product hit the channel sooner than expected, today is actually the day Intel is officially unleashing their newest mainstream desktop chipset, the P35, a member of the formerly codenamed “Bearlake” family.  In addition to a new Southbridge, the P35 chipset ushers in support for DDR3 system memory in the desktop.  It also supports legacy DDR2 memory, depending on the motherboard’s DIMM slot configuration. We’ve taken a pair of brand-new P35-based motherboards from Asus for a spin with both DDR2 and DDR3 memory installed.  As you’ll see, thanks to some relatively high latencies currently, DDR3 doesn’t affect performance all that much....

Motherboard chipset technology isn't refreshed at the same fevered pitch that processors, memory or IO products are.  A CPU or GPU speed-bump is like low-lying fruit relatively speaking, but chipset enhancements can usher in a whole host of stability, interoperability and verification challenges.  Let's face it, when the product is the basis for a platform foundation, forward migrations can be painful if not carefully planned, so the upside benefits need to be worth-while for both the end customer as well as the manufacturer.  If you asked us a year ago, what Intel's path to a higher bandwidth system bus and memory access was, we might have told you serial links from the CPU to...

It seems like just yesterday having 2GB of RAM made a system an ultimate gaming rig, and now here comes Super Talent with their 4GB DDR2-800 kit. At first glance one might wonder if Super Talent is shipping memory kits with 4 1GB sticks, but thankfully the answer is no. There are two 2GB DDR2-800 memory modules in the kit, and it looks like they'll be hitting the street for about $438 a kit. "San Jose, California - March 26, 2007 -- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of DRAM memory modules and flash products, today announced a new 4 GigaByte 800MHz DDR2 memory kit that is ideal for gamers and enthusiasts. The new T800UX4GC5 is a matched pair of 2 GigaByte 800MHz DDR2 non-ECC... Read more...
Intel, after recently reviewing its memory technology roadmap, speculated that phase change memory (PCM) will possibly be available by the end of the year. Phase change memory can run faster and be manufactured smaller then DRAM memory and as a result Intel believes it may possibly one day replace flash memory. Flash memory can become unreliable after as many as 10,000 write cycles where as phase change memory can go through as many as 100 million write cycles before a noticeable degradation. This week Intel privately shared parts of it roadmap for memory technologies through 2008. Revealed was that Intel's progress on phase-change memory, shortened as usually PCM or PRAM, will...

Hello Everyone.  We've just made a new article live featuring OCZ's brand-new Flex XLC Water-Cooled CAS-3 DDR2-800 2GB hybrid memory kit. Here's a snip from the piece: "With the release of their Flex XLC modules, OCZ is offering a product which is substantially more flexible than most other enthusiast class memory modules on the market. They can be air-cooled or water-cooled. They'll run at lower clock speeds with tight timings, or at high clock speeds with more relaxed timings. The Flex XLC modules are unique, efficient, and from what we've seen thus far, the pricing is in line with other high-end modules."... Read more...
For reasons unknown, a good portion of the enthusiast market still thinks that memory cooling is a fruitless effort. Many high-end users still believe that memory chips run plenty cool, and that putting heat spreaders and heatsinks on them is a superficial effort at best, and that they don't provide any major benefits. The fact that nearly all high-end memory module and graphics card memory manufacturers use some sort of additional cooling doesn't seem to matter. For a long time, I was a member of this camp as well. The first memory modules with heat-spreaders showed themselves in 2000-2001, right about the time that the industry was shifting from SDRAM to DDR SDRAM, and Rambus RDRAM... Read more...
Traditional magnetic platter hard drives not cutting it for you? Well what ever the reason, you may now have a legitimate alternative. Recently, according to The Inquirer, companies have been taking advantage of advances in NAND memory to create 2.5 inch flash disk drives with high enough capacities and performance to be practically used in notebooks. With capacities ranging from 32Gb to 160Gb, some read speed is left to be desired in comparison to traditional HDs, but the write speed of flash drives blows their magnetic predecessors out of the water. It seems that 2007 will be the year of flash-based drives finally starting to nibble into the market share of the only current logical... Read more...
Chinese website HKEPC has some supposed scoop regarding AMD/ATI's upcoming mid-range RV630 GPU. According to the story, some RV630 variants will support not only GDDR4 memory but conform to the PCI Express 2.0 specification as well.  There is news regarding three flavors of R630 posted up on the site, but the information is not written in english, so bring your favorite translator. There are a couple of charts and diagrams listed at the end of the piece with specifications and features listed.... Read more...
DDR2 memory has been around for the last couple of years, but the move to DDR3 is on the horizon. So what's the advantage of moving to DDR3? Well for starters, DDR3 memory requires only about 1.5 volts, less than DDR2, and also can be clocked at higher frequencies. DDR3 memory will still use the 240-pin form factor of DDR2 memory but the socket notch will be in a different place, so DDR3 memory will not be compatible with current DDR2 motherboards. The modules will be available starting around mid 2007 but don't expect to see them in systems until Intel's Bearlake chipset family is released. DDR3 is set to be the next PC memory standard and the successor... Read more...
