According to HWBot, the world record for memory overclocking has fallen again. Christian Ney, a Swiss overclocker, hit DDR3-3736MHz with a 4GB G.Skill RipjawZ DIMM. He used liquid nitrogen to keep the processor and memory cool, down to -197 degree C both at idle and under load. The screenshots of CPU-Z tell the tale... Read more...
Another day, another monster memory kit. Super Talent announced the Quadra series of DDR3 memory, which is designed to complement Intel Core i7 six-core processors. The overclocked kits, which total 32GB (8 x 4GB DIMMs) are validated with the X79 chipset and are available in 1600MHz or 1866MHz. Super Talent says the kits are available now,... Read more...
Fancy yourself too cool for regular RAM that any ordinary Joe can get their hands on? Then what you're looking for is a kit made out of Northern White Rhinoceros hide or some other critically endangered species. Of course if you find one, it'll cost a king's ransom and you'll be letting the world know your moral... Read more...
Two of the major needs of mobile device components are lower power consumption and greater speed. Elpida Memory’s next-gen 4Gb Wide IO Mobile RAM and DDR3 Mobile RAM (LPDDR3) are designed to address both of these issues. The Wide IO Mobile RAM boasts 12.8GBps per chip at 200MHz by using the extra-wide x512-bit data width and a purported... Read more...
If you spot a good deal on DRAM and could use an upgrade, you may want to pull the trigger rather than wait and hope prices will fall even further. According to Adata CEO Simon Chen, DRAM prices are likely to rebound in January 2012, mostly because of cuts in DRAM output made earlier in the year. The effects of those cuts are about to take...

Feel like getting drunk with DRAM? Want to have the ultimate memory bragging rights? If you look up the definition of "overkill" in the dictionary, do you want to see a picture of your motherboard in there? Answer 'yes' to all three questions and you're a prime candidate for MSI's X79A-GD45 (8D) motherboard, a slice... Read more...
Do you feel like your notebook is a little lean on RAM? If so, a new offering from AVADirect may be at the top of your holiday wish list. AVADirect has announced tested compatibility for 32GB RAM kits in over a dozen laptops from Celvo, MSI, and Asus. All of the compatible notebooks feature Intel's Sandy Bridge... Read more...
Concerned about voltage and SRAM? Your nerd card is approved. Fujitsu Semiconductor and SuVolta have demonstrated the ultra-low voltage operation of SRAM down to ~0.4V, which is just staggering in perspective. The low-voltage operation of SRAM (static random access memory) blocks down to 0.425V by integrating SuVolta's PowerShrink low-power... Read more...
Boasting, are we? Corsair has just announced that a new overclocking world record has been set. One that apparently shatters the previous memory frequency world record with a custom-built liquid nitrogen cooled system. The record? They hit a memory frequency of 1733.8MHz (DDR3-3467) using Corsair Dominator GT CMGTX6 extreme-performance DDR3... Read more...
System memory isn't the cause of your high energy bill at home -- check your fully loaded entertainment center instead -- but when it comes to servers and server farms, low power memory can have a real impact on a company's bottom line. It's the reason why memory makers develop so-called "green" memory, such as Super... Read more...
Ever heard of a "memory wall?" You have now, and evidently Micron and Samsung are working together to break it all down. Both companies are obviously big players in the memory space, and the two have launched the Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium, with the goal of accelerating Hybrid Memory Cube technology development and...

ReRAM? Yep, it's real, but it's not the kind of stuff you slap into a DIMM in order to run Photoshop with less lag. Samsung's working on a new and improved version of their rewritability and speed of resistance random access memory (ReRAM), which is said to be a next-gen nonvolatile memory. The real standout feature is that it can switch as... Read more...
Analyst firm IHS reports that chip supplier inventories have risen for the seven consecutive month. The continued rise in inventories reflects a general belief that consumer demand for electronic products will soon increase, though economic indicators are somewhat sketchy on this point. "Increases in stockpiles during the first quarter reflect... Read more...
