Crucial Announces 8Gb-based DDR4 Server Memory - Computex 2015
     Sat, Jun 06 2015 | 12:19A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

New modules provide significant cost advantage compared to current 4Gb-based DDR4 modules


Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, is now sampling Crucial DDR4 2400MT/s 8Gb-based RDIMM, LRDIMM, and ECC UDIMM server modules through its Technology Enablement Program. Engineered to enable higher density modules, 8Gb-based DDR4 memory allows for increased performance, bandwidth, and energy efficiency.


Higher density modules, when combined with the next DDR4 speed increase of 2400MT/s, create greater channel bandwidth and channel density, as well as increased energy efficiency. Ultimately, these benefits provide more value per gigabit than current 4Gb-based offerings.  Taken together, the increase in density, bandwidth, and value deliver a lower total cost of ownership for users.


“Our 8Gb-based modules will enable the next-generation of energy efficient servers to more readily keep up with the ever-increasing memory density and bandwidth demands of virtualization, HPC, and big data applications,” said Michael Moreland, worldwide product marketing manager, Crucial. “These modules can play a significant role in nearly any server strategy, no matter whether it is a new installation of a single server or the scale-up or scale-out of an existing deployment.”

Designed for the next-generation processor product families, Crucial 8Gb-based server memory is extensively tested to mission-critical standards and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.1  The Technology Enablement Program provides channel partners who are currently developing or evaluating DDR4-capable platforms early access to Crucial DDR4 8Gb-based RDIMMs, LRDIMMs, and ECC UDIMMs. The new modules are expected to available in late July and will be included in the Reliance Program.

G.SKILL Showcases the Ultimate DDR4 Memory - COMPUTEX
     Wed, Jun 03 2015 | 2:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and solid state storage, displays the highest frequency DDR4 3800MHz kit and the largest DDR4 128GB kit running at a full 3000MHz CL14. The New Heights of quad channel DDR4 Speed: 3800MHz After the announcement of the DDR4 3666MHz kit in May 2015, G.SKILL continued pushing DDR4 speed to new heights. At Computex this year, G.SKILL demos the ultimate DDR4 3800MHz 16GB(4x4GB) kit on two live demo systems with GIGABYTE GA-X99-SOC-Champion and ASRock Fatal1ty X99M Killer motherboards!

No compromises on performance! G.SKILL has managed its DDR4 128GB kit, based on unbuffered 16GB DDR4 modules with Samsung 8Gb Chips, at an ultra-high 3000MHz frequency with low timings of CL14. This luxury premium memory kit is displayed on the ASUS ROG Rampage V Extreme motherboard with the Intel Core i7-5960X processor.

Demonstrating the extreme limit of 16GB modules with Samsung 8Gb Chips, G.SKILL also showcases a total of 64GB with four modules of 16GB running at 3333MHz, surpassing even the latest 8GB-module based 64GB capacity memory kits. Installed on the ASUS ROG Rampage V Extreme motherboard with the Intel Core i7-5960X processor, this is possibly the most diverse high-end system setup ever.


Mushkin Ventura Ultra 120GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Tue, Jun 02 2015 | 11:54A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid state drives (SSDs) have many things in common with their "distant" cousins the typical flash drives but performance was never really one of those things mainly due to USB connectivity limitations (both hardware and software ones). This obstacle as some of you know was left behind not too long ago with the arrival of new USB 3.0 compatible controllers and the UASP (USB Attached SCSI) compatible driver found in Windows 8/8.1 since these two marked the day when manufacturers could actually squeeze the same parts found in every day SSD models inside tiny enclosures and expect similar performance results with increased capacity. Casual users have very little use for such drives however so unfortunately not many "portable" SSDs exist in the market as we speak but with the release of the T1 by Samsung and the Ventura Ultra by Mushkin (which we have here with us today) things are starting to get very interesting.

HyperX 32GB DDR4 Fury Memory Review
     Tue, Jun 02 2015 | 11:53A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we are looking at the HyperX’s new budget friendly lineup: the Fury series DDR4 memory. The HyperX Fury not only offers fast speeds of 2666MHz out of the box, but also offers the efficiency of lower voltage; with that in mind… we can see some great potential with additional performance once overclocked. We will be comparing results from Kingston’s (HyperX) previous line up from its DDR3 series all the way up to HyperX Predator DDR4 series we previously tested.”

G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 3000MHz
     Sat, May 23 2015 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently looked at a kit of G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 2666MHz and they were screaming-good both in speed and overclocking, and had nice, tight timings as well. We went back to the G.SKILL well and pulled out a G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 3000MHz kit so we can get a direct comparison between 2666MHz and 3000MHz at the same timings! It’s not often that we get to review RAM with the same timings at different speeds, but we lucked out and have it for you to scope out. How much difference will we get with a 334MHz advantage on the faster G.SKILL Kit? Read on to find out.

AMD Details High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) DRAM Tech
     Tue, May 19 2015 | 12:09P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
High Bandwidth Memory is designed to address a number of limitations of current GDDR5 memory implementations. On many of today’s graphics cards, a relatively large number of GDDR5 chips are necessary to offer sufficient capacity and bandwidth. The need to use a relatively large number of chips means a significant amount of PCB real estate is consumed by the memory and its associated voltage regulators. In addition, routing the traces required for a wide memory interface on a high-end graphics card significantly increases the complexity of the design. The power requirements for an off-chip interface are typically higher than an integrated solution as well...

LEXAR JumpDrive M10 & M20 Review
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:51P | Memory | PermaLink
