Almost all of the chatter centered on DDR5 memory so far has been in reference to full-size modules for future motherboard applications. That is all fine and dandy, especially with Intel set to release its Alder Lake-S lineup later this year, and AMD on track to deliver Zen 4 around the same time. But what about... Read more...
When the power goes out at home, we tend to freak out, because heaven forbid we can't watch TV or play video games, and have to *gulp* read a book or something to pass the time. How barbaric! But when a semiconductor factory loses power, well, the repercussions are a bit more severe. Just ask Micron, which warned... Read more...
It has been a nice, long run for the DDR4 standard, and while it is not exactly coming to a complete end, DDR5 is poised to replace it in the not-too-distant future. On next-gen platforms, anyway. Incidentally, Adata has been collaborating with MSI and Gigabyte on its upcoming DDR5 memory modules, which will feature... Read more...
The clock is ticking on DDR4, and TeamGroup is eager to adopt the next-gen DDR5 memory standard as quickly as possible. As such, the memory announced today that it will be releasing its first "Elite" branded DDR5 memory product in the second half of next year. In the process, TeamGroup may have also tipped what AMD...

PCs need faster RAM to keep up with the leaps in processing power, and as such, G.SKILL is releasing a new lineup of RAM. The new, low-latency Samsung B-die DDR4 RAM clocking in at 4000MHz comes in Ripjaws V, Trident Z RGB, and Trident Z Royal variants to provide performance and style in computers. According to...

We all know that bigger is better, right? At least in generalities, it's often true. More CPU cores help performance in multi-threaded workloads, while high frequencies boost performance in lightly-threaded tasks. With graphics, it's all about more as well; more shading resources, more ROPs, more VRAM, and a wider bus means more frames per... Read more...
Good news folks, the era of DDR5 memory is upon us, let's all celebrate! Well, sort of—you may want to buy the cheap champagne instead of the good stuff. Micron announced it is mass producing the world's first low power DDR5 DRAM (LPDDR5), which will find its way into high-end smartphones starting with Xiaomi's Mi... Read more...
For the average user, 32GB of RAM is a lot (the sweet spot is generally considered to be half as much). Be that as it may, G.Skill is introducing a handful of new high capacity, high performance DDR4 memory kits consisting of multiple 32GB modules, offering a total capacity of up to a whopping 256GB. That might... Read more...
G.Skill announced new hexa-channel DDR4 memory kits that will fall into its Trident Z Royal product line. These new memory kits are geared towards Intel's new high-end Xeon W-3175X processor -- which we reviewed here -- and support high memory capacities and fast data transfer speeds. G.Skill first launched its... Read more...
Memory prices are falling, folks, and just in time for the holiday shopping season. That's the good news. The even better news is that this might be the start of a longer term price drop, or price correction, if you prefer, after the cost of memory chips skyrocketed over the past year. We're not talking about nominal... Read more...
Oppo's Find X smartphone launched during the summer, and it had a very attractive design that eschewed the notch design that the iPhone X popularized (and was quickly followed by many others). Instead, the Find X got around the need for a notch by using a motorized, pop-up camera that hid away when not needed. A new... Read more...
Gigabyte is pulling the covers off some new gaming peripherals and other PC component hardware at Computex 2018. One of the products is the company's new AORUS RGB gaming RAM. The memory is a 16GB kit using a pair of DDR4 8GB DIMMs. It operates up to clock speeds of 3200 MHz with has timings of 16-18-18-38. Voltage... Read more...
Samsung has announced that mass production has kicked off for its new 32GB DDR4 SoDIMM for laptop computers. The RAM is based on 10nm-class production technology and is aimed directly at delivering PC-grade desktop performance for on-the-go gamers. Samsung says that the new RAM has significantly more capacity... Read more...
G.SKILL is still churning out high-speed memory kits for overclockers and enthusiasts, pushing the frequency limits with increasingly faster RAM built from cherry picked memory chips. The result is that G.SKILL now offers several memory kits that top 4,000MHz. It's latest kits, however, shift the focus to latencies... Read more...
About a week ago we talked a bit about the Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 32GB memory kit that operated at 4,333MHz and claimed the title of the world's fastest 4x8 32GB kit. That title lasted only about a week for Corsair because G.SKILL has just launched a new, and even faster 4x8 32GB DDR4 RAM kit. G.SKILL calls its... Read more...
Corsair has unveiled Vengeance LPX memory, which it says is the world's fastest 4x8GB (32GB) kit. The kit consists of a quartet of 8GB RAM modules that are built with hand-sorted and extensively binned Samsung B-die ICs. Timings on the memory are CL19-26-26-46 at 1.5V. The memory kit is fully XMP 2.0 compliant, so... Read more...
G.Skill has rolled out some RAM for computer enthusiasts out there who have the cheddar to plunk down for the Intel's Kaby Lake-X/X299 HEDT platform. This would be THE memory to cram into your Intel Core i9 X-Series rig. The RAM kit is DDR4-4600MHx CL19 and is built using hand-selected, high-quality Samsung B-die IC... Read more...
A mere month after DDR4 was introduced for the first time on an AMD platform (Ryzen), the memory guidance organization JEDEC has decided to reveal its plans for DDR5. That's right: nothing can stop the progression of technology. As soon as we have something fresh to enjoy, the next big thing is right around the... Read more...
Notebook makers have answered the call for increasing thin and light solutions, but at what cost? The quest for even thinner waistlines and lighter profiles has been met with sacrifices, such as the demise of the removable battery (there are exceptions, though comparatively few). That's just the start of... Read more...
If you're planning to build a new system around one of Intel's new Skylake processors, you might as well go the distance and pick up a Z170-chipset motherboard that supports DDR4 memory. You'll find that there are plenty of memory kits to choose from, including Kingston Technology's brand new HyperX Savage. With a... Read more...
When it comes to onboard RAM, Android smartphones often come fully stocked. These days, you expect at least 2GB of RAM on all but the most low-end devices. 3GB is common with most flagships, and some recently released Android smartphones come packing 4GB of RAM. However, Apple has always been stingy when it comes... Read more...
Researchers at MIT have come up with a new network design that exploits cheap, power-efficient flash memory without sacrificing the speed that supercomputing applications enjoy from Random Access Memory (RAM). What's appealing about the development is that flash memory is about ten times less expensive than RAM and... Read more...
