Samsung Starts To Produce 256GB Storage Chips

It was just last month that Samsung made a splash by introducing its 256GB UFS2.0 memory chips which will no doubt target the mobile device market, and we were left wondering as to just how soon would it be before we are able to pick up devices that come with 256GB of storage space right out of the box. Well, it looks like the wait is definitely shortened with word […]

Persistent Memory Solution From Micron Announced

Micron has just announced their brand new persistent memory solution, which means that the Micron DDR4 NVDIMM technology happens to be their maiden, commercially available persistent memory solution that is capable of accelerating access when it boils down to large data sets. Production of the 8GB DDR4 NVDIMM would mean one can now enjoy a special balance of latency, bandwidth, capacity and cost, achieving ultra-fast DRAM-like access to critical data […]

Air Traffic System Failed Because Of Lacking Computer Memory

They say that flying is one of the safest modes of traveling, and statistically speaking, it is safer than walking on the street or driving a car. Well, there are cock-ups that might happen during a flight as well, otherwise we would not have series like Seconds From Disaster, but thankfully, those are far and few in between, and lessons from the past have been well learnt to protect passengers […]

Hybrid Memory Cube Paves The Road To A Bright Future

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, […]


Samsung pushes LPDDR3 memory into next-gen devices

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. […]

Panasonic, Samsung, Sandisk, Sony and Toshiba form the Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative

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.

AMD Radeon Memory should be an easy choice

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, […]

Monster and SDJ Technologies enter into memory storage deal

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.

iPhone 4S has 512MB RAM (Rumor)

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 […]

Samsung “Green” DDR3 Memory Modules

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 […]

Glass memory preserves data for centuries

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 […]

Search engines change how our memory works

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.
