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, supports higher speeds, and has lower energy consumption than its previous offerings (or its competitors). Compared to the previous Samsung 16GB SoDIMM RAM based on 20nm-class 8Gb DDR4, the new 32GB modules have twice the capacity and promise to be 11% faster and 39% more energy efficient (contributing to longer battery life). Samsung uses 16 of its new 16Gb DDR4 DRAM chips with eight chips... Read more...
Corsair has been flexing its muscles recently with new DDR4 DIMM kits that it claims are the fastest in the world. Today, the company is extending its record-breaking performance streak to SO-DIMM kits for notebook, small form factor (SFF), and all-in-one PCs. The PC components company claims that its new Vengeance 32GB (four 8GB modules) SO-DIMM kit is the world's fastest, operating at a brisk 4,000MHz. Like its full-size DIMM counterparts, these SO-DIMM kits are built using Samsung B-die ICs to ensure stability at higher operating speeds. Corsair says that the modules have "super tight" CL19-23-23-45 timings, and they operate at 1.35 volts. Corsair specifically calls out ASRock's X299E-ITX/ac... Read more...
A new flavor of Raspberry Pi is going to lead to some interesting mods, or so that's the hope. Raspberry Pi is being shrunk down and baked onto a SODIMM module, which modders and makers will be able to plug into their own home brewed Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs). If that's above your skill or interest level, the Raspberry Pi Foundation also has in its recipe book a Compute Module I/O board to help designers get started. The SODIMM contains the guts of a Raspberry Pi -- BCM2835 processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB eMMC flash storage (essentially the equivalent of having an SD card in the Pi). All of those parts are integrated into a 67.6mm by 30mm board that fits into a standard DDR2 SODIMM connector.... Read more...
With so much attention being paid Ultrabooks, now and for the foreseeable future, Patriot Memory figured it might as well launch a memory line specifically for these types of systems. Hence today's unveiling of the company's "Memory for Ultrabook" line, which consist of ultra low power (ULP) SODIMMs compatible with Intel's 3rd Generation Core processor family. “Patriot Memory and Intel have been leaders in delivering the fastest and most optimized technologies for mobile platforms," said William Lai, Director of Product Management at Patriot Memory. "We’re excited to have Intel’s support as we launch our Memory for Ultrabook SODIMM memory. These modules will provide excellent... Read more...
The braggarts over at Kingston Technology have reason to beat their chests and toot their own horns today. That's because Intel just crowned Kingston's ridiculously fast HyperX 2133MHz SO-DIMM 4GB notebook memory kits with its XMP certification, making these notebook modules the first and fastest to be validated, Kingston says. Adorned with Kingston's familiar blue heatspreaders, the company's 2133Mhz HyperX 4GB SO-DIMM (KHX2133C9S3K2/4GX) memory kits are tested at 2133MHz using CL9-11-9-27 timings at 1.5 volts. Kingston says it uses an ASRock HD65-MXM motherboard and Intel's second generation Core i7 2920XM processor to test these kits, which are designed to "push the current frequency boundaries...
