Apple has reduced its order of memory chips from Samsung for its new iPhone as the two companies continue a bitter legal dispute throughout the world's courts.
Kingston's current offerings in the DRAM market might not seem as aggressive as some of the other vendors, however Kingston is bringing back some of their old lines such as the T1 line with tall heatspeaders. This is one of Kingston's latest shots at the high-end DRAM market for Z77 overclocking, so follow us as
Kingston's newest line of system memory was announced today, the HyperX Predator series. Available in speeds ranging from DDR3-1600 MHz to DDR3-2666 MHz, the memory is available in various memory densities and kit capacities, not to mention a swanky new heatsink design that is doubly long as a standard memory module.
ECS announced that it's the first motherboard vendor to support the AMP (AMD Memory Profile) standard. Think of AMP as the company's equivalent to Intel XMP. It's certainly not the first time AMD toyed with custom SPD standards.
ADATA Introduced a new high-performance 8 GB dual-channel DDR3-2400 MHz memory kit, under its XPG Gaming v2.0 series. The kit is optimized for Intel "Ivy Bridge" Core processors, and comes at an attractive price.
Team Group extended its Xtreem brand to its newest line of high-performance UHS-I compliant micro-SDHC/micro-SDXC cards. The Xtreem brand has been associated with some of Team's memory modules for overclockers.
Sony launched what it touts to be the fastest memory card ever made. The S-Series memory cards from Sony conform to the XQD specification, and guarantee read/write speeds of 168 MB/s, a tiny bit faster than the fastest CompactFlash card in the market.
It takes a long time to certify a platform, especially one intended for mission-critical tasks. While desktop and notebook platforms typically end up qualified within 2-3 quarters, it often takes up to 2 years to verify that all the parts of server platform work in order.
The modern world has ton of companies that were on the verge of making a revolution, only to exhaust its cash reserves and crash before they could change the world. Regardless of are we talking about 3dfx and 48-bit color, or Elpida and ReRAM i.e. Resistive RAM – the story remains the same.
Without any doubt, GDDR5 memory is prevalent high-speed memory of today. The standard attracted a lot of companies and powers systems from graphics cards to networking switches, from cars to rockets and even lunar landers. Thus, the big question remains, when the successor is going to arrive?
Its easy for us journos to get distracted when we're trying to scour the ground at Computex for news…
This year, G.Skill showed off their record breaking TridentX DDR3 modules and Sandforce SF-2281 based Phoenix III SSDs alongside an LN2 overclocking demostration graced by representatives from the top motherboard makers. We took a look at some of the exhibits…
Kingston Technology started shipping its HyperX dual-channel DDR3 memory kits optimized for Intel Core "Ivy Bridge" platform, some of which come with profiles for speeds as high as DDR3-2666 MHz. The company also announced XMP certification of its upcoming HyperX DDR3-2800 MHz kit by Intel.
G.Skill has organized a "World-Class Overclocking Invitational" at their Nangang booth during the Computex Taipei 2012 show days, featuring international superstars like Kingp|n and Elmor from leading manufacturers ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte and EVGA.
DDR4 will potentially arrive in the server space come next year, yet most mobile devices are still using DDR or DDR2 memory, with only a handful shipping with DDR3 memory. Samsung has announced that it has managed to improve things in several ways by shrinking its LPDDR2 memory to 2Xnm.
While there are a lot of internal arguments between JEDEC members when exactly DDR4 is supposed to arrive on market (2013 or 2014), Micron is pressing forward with the first evaluation DDR4 prototypes operating at 2400 MHz.
One of the benefits of the new Ivy Bridge based processors is the much touted IMC improvements over Sandy Bridge, allowing for memory overclocks north of 2600MHz+ if all conditions are right (RAM dexterity, motherboard electrical traces, power design, bios firmware…). G.Skill seized the opportunity and released their new Trident X series of XMP 1.3
Kingston is making further efforts to separate itself from other SO-DIMM makers by being about as explicit as possible to its customers straight off the shelf in terms of which memory module(s) will work best with their specific notebook.
DDR3 memory seems to last quite long now as the unchallenged memory standard. As DDR4 finally makes the inroads in 2014, what should we expect from it?
With the introduction of Intel's Socket 2011 processors for enthusiasts and professionals not too long ago, it spawned a market for good XMP 1.3 DDR3 compliant kits to maximize the quad channel bandwidth and take advantage extra memory dividers north of 2400+MHz that the new platform brings. We have previously published a review of the
