Who wouldn't like to have 2GBs of memory in their system? If you're looking to see some high speed ram in action, check out 3dGameMan's video review of Corsair's XMS-4000PT DDR500 2GB Kit."While Corsair is a little late implementing their UCCC solution they have done a great job. I was a little disappointed in the overclocking result as I expected a little more. But remember, this memory is at a high default speed as it is. Getting the extra few MHz's out of it is a bonus..." ... Read more...
Earlier this week, Hynix Semiconductor enveiled their new GDDR4 Graphics memory modules.  Able to process data at almost two time that of GDDR3, Hynix will be pushing graphics card manufacturers to sign on, with a mass production target of Q306.  The current model can process 11.6 Gigabytes of data in one second with 14.4GB/s being the target later in 2006. "GDDR is an ultra-high speed graphics DRAM that processes moving pictures and graphic data in personal computers and game consoles. The fourth-generation graphics memory GDDR4, which improves data processing speed by close to two times than that of GDDR3, is ideal for 64-bit computer... Read more...

The Inquirer has posted a rather interesting article this morning. The first article illustrates the previously unknown fact that NVIDIA's G70, NV40, and NV45 cores can all support and address up to 2GB of memory. Granted, our testing hasn't shown any immediate need to have even 512MB of memory for today's crop of games. However, with titles based on next-generation engines likely showing up early next year we might begin to see insane amounts of memory showing up on the latest and greatest flagship graphics card.It transpires that the chap is right as we have confirmed that NV40, NV45 and G70 chips can address up to 2GB or memory. It seems that Nvidia memory controller can handle more than we... Read more...

AMDZone has Quake 4 Benchmarks with the X850XT PE, 6800GT, 7800GT,& 7800GTX: "We have been Quake players since the first test came out, and it has been too long since Quake 3. While we have played just a few hours of Quake 4 multiplayer it is too early to comment on too much. While the DM17 conversion is not to our liking game play seems ok so far, but we have yet to get into a zone with the rail gun likely because our settings still need to be tweaked. While Quake 4 unlike Quake 3 includes a true single player experience today we focus on multiplayer performance.

Hey guys, I'm half asleep here so I'm going to make this short and sweet. Here is your news, enjoy :) Introduction to FB-DIMM Memory: Birth of Serial RAM? @ PCStats "Serial data links, once reserved for only the slowest exterior connections and least-demanding peripherals, have proven to be the future of computer design. Up until just recently though, one of the most essential parts of any computer has remained stubbornly parallel in its implementation; computer memory, or RAM as it also called. FB-DIMM memory (short for Fully-Buffered Dual Inline Memory Module) is a variant of standard DDR2 memory designed for server applications where both large amounts of memory and memory co-ordination...

Hey folks, here's your monday fix :) I've got some news for all you gamers out there... Half-Life 2: Aftermath is rumored to be released in September. Also, Quake 4 is aiming for a fall/winter release date, so it looks like the end of the year will again be a treat to us Source and Doom 3 engine fans. Personally I'm looking equally forward to both of them... well, maybe Quake 4 a little more than the HL2 expansion.

Sapphire Radeon X300SE HyperMemory & Leadtek WinFast PX6200 TC TDH @ Bjorn3D: "To make a respectable profit in the video card industry, a company cannot rely on its flagship cards to bring in high margins. Instead, a graphics card company must produce mid-level and low-end cards that will sell in big lots to OEMs. That's where the big money is. Several months ago, ATI and NVIDIA decided to spice up the low-end segment with their HyperMemory and TurboCache technologies, respectively."

  On March 15th, ATI announced news of their new value-class HyperMemory X300 SE series PCI Express Graphics Cards.  In direct answer to NVIDIA's TurboCache product line, the HyperMemory line was targeted to offer better overall performance at a lower price point.  At that time however, the cards themselves were not ready for testing, leaving our coverage more of an overview of the new technology, with little tangible performance data. Now, as we move into Q2 2005, we've been provided an X300 SE Hypermemory 128 card direct from ATI.  This card allowed us to take a direct look at the X300 SE Hypermemory 128 and update our original preview with some performance comparisons from...

  Back in December 2004, NVIDIA introduced their latest evolution in the budget graphics card market with the release of TurboCache technology.  The focus with TurboCache was both system resource utilization and economics, in an effort to deliver a quality business-class/casual gaming video card at the lowest possible price point.  NVIDIA wanted to achieve this while still offering many of the features of the higher-end 6600 and 6800 series cards but at a much lower price tag.  Through the use of software and hardware, a new TurboCache designed video card could allocate a chunk of system memory to be used concurrently with the video card's local memory.  This meant that...
