Back in October of last year, SK hynix announced it was developing fourth generation high bandwidth memory DRAM dubbed HBM3, and now just seven months later it has entered the mass production phase. NVIDIA will be the first to deploy HBM3 after having completed its performance evaluation, though don't expect to see... Read more...
Two years ago, SK hynix made a splash in in the storage scene with its Gold P31 SSD family, which at the time was the first to incorporate 128-layer NAND flash memory. Fast forward to today and SK hynix is looking to cannonball into the super high-speed storage sector with its Platinum P41 line delivering sequential... Read more...
Solidigm today announced it has begun volume production of a couple of high-speed solid date drive (SSD) lines for enterprise and cloud clients. They include the D7-P5520 and D7-P5620, both of which Solidigm is pitching as the industry's most advanced PCI Express 4.0 family of SSDs, with much improved read and write... Read more...
When NVIDIA called of its Arm deal last month due to mounting regulatory hurdles, it was expected the British chip designer would head towards an Initial Public Offering (IPO) spearheaded by its parent firm Softbank. And not just any IPO, but the "biggest IPO ever in semiconductor history," Softbank founder Masayoshi... Read more...
SK Hynix announced it has developed its first PIM (processing in memory) solution, which it plans to show off at the upcoming International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the same venue where Intel will talk about its Bonanza Mine crypto mining accelerator. These have nothing to do with one another, except... Read more...
Are you looking to upgrade your storage? A solid state drive is definitely the way to go, especially for a high-powered PC that might be used for gaming or content creation. There are a plethora of options to choose from too, and one of the most compelling right now is a 1TB Crucial P5 Plus SSD (shown above) that's... Read more...
SK Hynix isn't necessarily the first name one thinks of when conjuring up images of PCI Express SSDs, but in the years to come it certainly will be. The company is the second-biggest producer of memory on this planet Earth, although its own brand name has really only appeared on a handful of drives, like its Gold P31... Read more...
A deal that has been over a year in the making between Intel and SK Hynix has been consummated, at least for the initial portion. That being the first closing of the sale of Intel's NAND flash memory and solid state drive (SSD) business to SK Hynix for $7 billion, the companies announced. The deal was first announced...

SK Hynix is on cloud nine today on claims it has developed the first-ever High Bandwidth Memory 3 (HBM3) DRAM solution, beating other memory makers to the punch. According to SK Hynix, HBM3 is the world's best-performing DRAM, with the ability to process 819 gigabytes per second for a delightful performance bump over... Read more...
High bandwidth memory (HBM) has always lived up to its name, it just has not been as widely adopted in mainstream graphics cards as GDDR memory chips. Maybe that will change when HBM3 arrives. Regardless, whatever products do end up getting the HBM3 treatment will see a big jump in bandwidth, according to some figures... Read more...
SK Hynix suddenly finds itself in the midst of damage control (both literally and figuratively) over a batch of defective DRAM products that shipped out to customers.

Back in July, JEDEC finalized the specifications for DDR5 memory, and laid out a number of key performance advantages over DDR4 including quadrupling the maximum die density to 64Gb and boosting maximum data rates from 3.2Gbps to 6.4Gbps [official]. Today, SK Hynix has announced that it is launching the world's very... Read more...
Memory maker SK Hynix is over the moon at being the first to market with a consumer solid state drive (SSD) that uses 128-layer NAND flash memory chips, and while that is notable, the real treat here is the balance of speed and price. The company's new Gold P31 is both fast and relatively affordable, particularly in... Read more...
Although it’s a few years behind schedule, the final specifications for DDR5 memory have been released. The JESD79-5 DDR5 SDRAM standard was originally supposed to be released two years ago (2018), but now, new hardware based on the standard is expected to arrive in 2021 (late 2020 if we’re lucky). There are a... Read more...
It's about that time again in the desktop market to switch to a new memory standard. We first began the transition from DDR3 to DDR4 six years ago, and now memory suppliers are laying the groundwork for the leap from DDR4 to DDR5. So, what kind of advantages will DDR5 offer over its predecessor? Well, SK Hynix is... Read more...
Anticipation is running high for AMD's second-generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) graphics architecture, the one that will underpin the so called 'Big Navi' GPU.
