04/02/2013, There does not seem to be anything that modern day technology cannot do, and when it comes to memory for computers and other kinds of consumer electronics devices, those tend to expand exponentially when it comes to the total capacity. Well, the Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium has been working for quite the longest time already on developing a standard for for its technology, taking 17 months or so to date, […]
06/27/2012, At Uplinq I met representatives of Samsung who are promoting the LPDDR3 memory designed for the next-generation smartphones and tablets. LPDDR is also known as “mobile DDR” and it is a type of memory that can consume 10X less power in standby mode, when compared to typical “PC” DDR3 memory. Obviously, this is a big deal because most of the time, your smartphone is in standby mode, doing very little. […]
12/20/2011, Remember the Full HD 3D glasses initiative that was formed by Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and X6D? Well it looks like those companies (minus X6D) are back again, this time with Sandisk and Toshiba to form the Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative. The five companies will be creating a content protection technology for flash memory cards such as SD cards and various storage devices.
11/28/2011, Yes you read that right, AMD Radeon is now a memory brand as well… When it comes to PC memory, things usually come down to reading the specs of your motherboard and head to an online retailer, except in two cases: first, when you want to absolute best performance via overclocking. This is tricky because not all memory module will withstand being run to the limit of today’s silicon. Secondly, […]
11/02/2011, Monster and SDJ Technologies have come together to develop a new “Monster Digital” brand that will handle memory storage needs, which seems pretty out of whack considering how Monster’s expertise lies in rolling out high-performance headphones more often than not, although they do make forays into connectivity solutions and consumer electronics accessories.
10/10/2011, We all know what a hit the iPhone 5 (now officially known as the iPhone 4S) would be, the question was not whether it would be a hit or not, but rather, just how big of a hit it would end up as. I guess the question has been answered upon hearing that this particular smartphone has already raked up more than a million in orders in pre-sales. Having said […]
09/22/2011, Apple’s relationship with Samsung is far from good. Prior to the recent wave of lawsuits and injunctions, Apple and Samsung enjoyed a relationship that made Apple Samsung’s biggest customer. Apple has ordered a range of components from Samsung, such as LCD displays for their iPads, A4/A5 chipsets for the iPhone and iPad and also memory that is being used in their Mac computers.
09/14/2011, What’s not Green these days? Samsung has released low voltage 30nm RDIMM DDR3 4Mbit memory modules aimed at the server market. They have the particularity of running at only 1.25V , while popular memory modules often run at 1.5V or 1.7V. It may not sound like much, it’s a whopping 60% savings over the previous generation of 40nm 2Gb DDR3 memory modules. If you scale that over thousands of computers […]
08/16/2011, Who would have thought that something as simple as glass could actually be cobbled together to become something totally different – in this case, glass is used in computer memory that makes it far more stable and resilient compared to what you find in modern hard drives that are in the market. According to British researchers, they managed to do this by using lasers to rearrange atoms in glass, since […]
07/29/2011, Records are meant to be broken, or so the saying goes. Well, Kingston certainly takes their passion for flash memory seriously with their latest release, dubbing it the world’s fastest dual channel memory kit. The Kingston HyperX KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX, as it is known, managed to clock 2902MHz with CAS 6 and 3082MHz with CAS 7 latencies at a heavy home over-clocking session in France. Of course, tweaking your memory does need […]
07/15/2011, It is interesting to see just what the future holds in terms of technology and trends, and it seems as though researchers from North Carolina State University managed to come up with a memory device which is not only soft, but it is capable of functioning just right even in wet environments. What kind of possibilities does this open up? Well, how about a whole new generation of biocompatible electronic […]
07/14/2011, Thanks to Google and other search engines out there, life with the internet has become extremely convenient. Google’s not so recent changes to its search engine (autocomplete, instant search) in addition to fast internet connections has helped users cut down a lot of time spent typing unnecessary words or waiting for results.
07/13/2011, While most SD cards are good enough for a wide range of consumers, Apacer has announced a new type of SD card that’s been designed for use in embedded systems in harsh environments. No word on what these SD cards will be called, but they will be compliant with the Ver. 2.0 standard and SDHC Class 10 high-speed transmission so there’s no need for hardware manufacturers to create new SD […]
07/11/2011, Tired of misplacing USB thumb drives because you have to keep removing them from your laptop every time you pack it up to move somewhere? Well, the folks at Verbatim have got some good news for you. They’ve just announced a new series of USB drives called the Store ‘n’ Stay. Featuring a tiny foot print, no larger than a dime, these memory sticks can stay plugged in to your […]
