If anyone thought the memory industry couldn't get any worse, it looks like Micron is about to obliterate the competition with its Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) technology that is built using through-silicon vias (TSVs) and Micron has now signed an agreement with IBM to start manufacturing. This technology if proven successful in mass production would
Corsair introduced a new line of DDR3 memory modules in the SO-DIMM form-factor, targeting high-performance notebooks, gaming notebooks, and mobile workstations. Corsair's new modules promise to bring a similar level of tuning headroom as their bigger standard DIMM cousins.
The DDR3 memory industry is suffering with indigestion. Quite literally. Upstream component manufacturers, as well as vendors have jointly overproduced, and hence we're seeing unreal memory prices. DRAM chip vendors Elpida and Toshiba are two of those companies suffering with inventory digestion problem, and they could be the worst hit, given that they're both Japanese,
In early August, AMD introduced Radeon-branded memory modules in selected markets. When we spoke with AMD, we were told that the company is "trialing the market" and is "running a test in Japan". The results of that test were obviously successful, since the company is coming with the whole product line.
German memory maker Exceleram set a new standard for pricing of 8GB DDR3 memory modules. It is offering a new "no-frills" module for as low as US $49.99 a piece, and we're talking MSRP here.
As we all know, Rambus Inc. is more known for their litigation practices than their products. However, those litigious practices tend to tie the value of the company with the legal department rather than the engineering and sales ones.
The flood in Thailand caught manufacturers off guard, but damages and losses are more than initially analysed. The outlook of the hard disk supplies are grimly forecasted to run out at the end of the year, leading to backlash in the first quarter of 2012.
Patriot Memory has launched not only three new SSDs for Apple's Mac line of computers, but also a range of memory upgrade options for Mac notebooks as well as iMac's. However, we're not entire sure what's Mac specific about the products apart from the stickers on the products saying so.
In exactly a week's time from now, Intel Sandy Bridge-E HEDT (high-end desktop) platform will be upon us. But November 14 isn't a big day just for Intel and its three new processors, but an entire ecosystem of manufacturers and products that are designed for Sandy Bridge-E, including motherboards, memory, and cooling. After motherboards, memory
G.Skill is a prominent maker of DDR3 SDRAM, known for their reasonable prices and high clocking kits, their PI series is no exception. Today we will take a look at one of their legendary kits, the F3-17600CL7D-4GBPIS which boasts some pretty nice specs. It is rated to run at DDR3 2200 with a low CAS
We've reported on the move towards 3Xnm DRAM products by Hynix and Samsung in the past and it now seems like the Taiwanese DRAM makers are really starting to feel the pressure as they can no longer compete in terms of cost. On top of that, the Taiwanese DRAM manufacturers don't get as many DRAM
It is often debated that using more expensive "enthusiast-grade" memory will help application and gaming performance. We use the latest AMD FX-8150 8-core processor and ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula 990FX to find out if that holds true for the Bulldozers…
It's actually quite amazing how many products Samsung makes and there's no wonder that the company is starting to have such a dominant place in the mobile market space. The company announced no less than five new products related to mobile products, a new HD CMOS sensor, a 16Megapixel CMOS sensor, faster 64GB eMMC flash
Back in May last year Samsung started building its Line-16 memory fab and trial production kicked off back in June this year, followed by mass production in August and the company has now announced that the Fab has gone into full production. According to Samsung this is the world's largest memory Fab and that in
Things just got really interesting in the memory market space, as Invensas Corporation, a subsidiary of Tessera Technologies have come up with a way to shove as much memory as that fitted to a SO-DIMM into a single chip. The technology is known as xFD or multi-die face-down packaging and it'll be demonstrated at IDF
Samsung has announced the availability of its new RDIMM DRAM module for servers, which boasts a maximum capacity of 32GB and makes use of 3D-TSV technology. According to the Korean electronics giant, the new high-capacity RDIMM DRAM module was designed to meet the needs of high-performance next-generation server platforms.
This is a peculiar one, AMD has started selling desktop PC memory under its Radeon brand and although that in itself is strange, we can't but wonder about the timing, as it's not exactly as if memory costs much these days. AMD is offering three types of memory as well, targeting entertainment, ultra pro gaming
Corsair releases the 2 x 4GB Dominator GT rams which run at a rated frequency of 2400MHz and timings of 9-11-9-27. This 8GB Dominator GT memory kit will have limited quantities. More details inside.
The major computer memory technology today is SDRAM in various shapes or forms, but there have been talks about various solutions set to replace the aging memory type with faster and more power efficient options with vastly improved performance. Well, Hynix and Toshiba has announced that the two are teaming up to develop Spin-Transfer Torque
Patriot has introduced the new G2 Series, AMD Series Memory kits which are designed for AMD 9-series platforms. More details inside.
