SK hynix announced today that it has begun supplying 16-gigabyte (GB) packages of its Low Power Double Data Rate 5 Turbo (LPDDR5T) memory to global smartphone makers, after having announced development of the turbo-charged chips back in January of this year. Though 10 months have elapsed since then, SK hynix still can... Read more...
Samsung just annoucned its next-generation HBM3E "Shinebolt" and GDDR7 memory. While Samsung may have lagged behind rival memory manufacturers SK Hynix and Micron in launching HBM3E, Shinebolt is poised to be the fastest HBM3E for the high performance computing (or HPC) industry. Meanwhile, Samsung is leading the pack... Read more...
If you saw that headline and thought, "but wait, DDR5-7200 has been around a while now," remember that almost all of the DDR DIMMs that you buy as an end user are overclocked. When you buy a G.SKILL or Teamgroup memory kit that's rated for DDR4-4000, DDR5-6400, or DDR5-7200, you're almost assuredly buying a kit with... Read more...
Late last year, sensing a market slowdown, memory manufacturers elected to cut production from earlier estimates. That has turned out to be a wise decision on their parts, as companies like Phison, Adata, Teamgroup, and Winbond all have reported spectacular financials in the most recent quarter. This news comes to... Read more...
CAMM is a new memory module format proposed by Dell and released to the public early this year. JEDEC acknowledged the proposal, but to date has not ratified it as an actual standard. CAMM stands for "Compression Attached Memory Module", and it refers to modules that are both thinner and faster than traditional... Read more...
How much RAM do you need, readers? If you're just a gamer or even a typical power user, you're almost assuredly satisfied with the 64 GB you can get from two large DIMMs right now. However, even 128GB of RAM might not be enough for some users. Those folks could be elated by Samsung's newest announcement: 32-gigabit... Read more...
SK hynix announced it is now mass producing what it claims is the industry's first 24-gigabyte (GB) Low Power Double Data Rate 5X (LPDDR5X) mobile DRAM for a new round of smartphones with more memory than ever before. OnePlus is getting the party started as the first to use SK hynix's new DRAM packages, and... Read more...
Micron just put out a press release crowing about its latest achievement: 8-high HBM3 Gen2 memory stacks with up to 24GB of capacity and a 50% improvement in per-pin transfer rate over extant HBM3. That raises the data rate to 9.2 Gbps, which sounds low until you realize that we're talking about massively-parallel... Read more...
Memory overclocking performance has historically been a weak point of AMD's Ryzen processors. This is true even on Socket AM5; where Intel-based DDR5 rigs can hit 7000, 8000, all the way up to the world record of 11,202 MT/s, AMD systems tend to struggle to get much past 6000 MT/s. On the Socket AM4 platform, memory... Read more...
It's all about timing when it comes to PC memory and we're not just talking about latency settings—when you pull the trigger on a new memory kit can make a big difference on the value proposition. Fortunately for consumers, DDR5 and DDR4 memory pricing is still on a downward swing, though it's no longer free falling... Read more...
Every major graphics product out right now uses either GDDR6, GDDR6X, or HBM3 memory, and the latter option only really exists for super-computing chips like NVIDIA's Hopper H100, AMD's Instinct MI250X, and Intel's Data Center GPU Max. GDDR6 and GDDR6X are the standards of our day, and they're really the same... Read more...
Confession time: I'm absolutely terrible (or lazy?) at dusting my dwelling as much or as often I should. So, going with a white-themed PC isn't really on my radar. That said, I'm also absolutely envious of anyone who can pull it off (will you come clean my place?), and to make it easier, G.Skill is introducing fast... Read more...
It didn't take long for Samsung to go from announcing the development of the industry's first 16-gigabit (Gb) DDR5 memory chips built on a 12-nanometer class manufacturing process, which it achieved in December, to now mass producing the advanced DRAM parts. In doing so, Samsung puts us one big step closer to faster... Read more...
Neo Semiconductor has announced the world’s first 3D stackable DRAM technology, called 3D X-DRAM, that could revolutionize the memory industry as we know it today. Neo estimates that its 3D X-DRAM tech can achieve 128Gb density which is 8 times greater compared to today’s best solutions with DDR5 technology. 3D... Read more...
SK hynix has announced the world’s first 12-layer HBM3 product featuring capacities of 24GB, representing a 50% increase in memory capacity over the company's previous 12GB products. This will greatly accelerate the growth of storage capacity for enterprise GPUs and boost application performance in many HPC workloads... Read more...
AMD issued a blog post yesterday, right before the launch of the RTX 4070, subtly shredding NVIDIA’s “lackluster” GDDR6 and GDDR6X memory sizes on its RTX 30/40 series graphics cards. AMD says enthusiasts demand the best gaming experience possible and video memory capacities below 12GB are simply not enough to run the... Read more...
A document leak has revealed more performance numbers for AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7 7800X3D. But this time the leak comes from MSI, revealing benchmark results of the CPU with MSI's home-grown Enhanced Mode Boost 3 and MSI's High-Efficiency modes turned on. These modes are MSI-exclusive and boost the 7800X3D’s power... Read more...
Memory bandwidth isn't that big of a deal on desktop platforms. Client tasks like office work, web browsing, and even computer games are usually much more sensitive to memory latency than memory performance, which is why AMD sees such huge gains in gaming from its 3D V-Cache technology. Server and HPC tasks can be... Read more...
If the only thing holding you back from building a new Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake or AMD Ryzen 7000 series PC is the cost of DDR5 memory, you're in luck. Pricing on DDR5 modules has fallen precipitously since the launch of Alder Lake, which is when DDR5 first stuck its foot through the mainstream doorway, and further... Read more...
The latest Halo Infinite update has unexpectedly disabled 3GB GPU support from the game's system requirements. Gamers running 3GB GPUs, such as the infamous GTX 1060 3GB can no longer run the game and will be greeted by an error screen explaining the issue. 343 Industries seemingly did not announce the GPU requirement...

ASUS has released a new series of BIOS updates that support the latest high-capacity 24GB and 48GB DDR5 memory modules on select ASUS AM5 motherboards. These BIOS updates are available as test revisions for users to try out early from resident overclocker Shamino on the ROG forums. As a result, these BIOS updates are... Read more...
A new report confirms that MSI will be discontinuing the production of several DDR4-based Z790 and B760 motherboards in the future. Affected SKUs include the MPG Z790 Edge WiFi DDR4, Pro Z790-A WiFi DDR4, Pro Z790-P DDR4, and the DDR4 series of B760 Mortar motherboards. The reasoning for the discontinuations is... Read more...
