Patriot Memory has unveiled a new addition to its line of performance memory products for computer geeks and enthusiasts everywhere. The new RAM slots into the Viper Xtreme Series of Extreme Performance DDR3 RAM. The RAM uses a custom aluminum and copper heat sink to keep the DRAM chips underneath running cool.
Today, Samsung made it known that they are hard at work on a new flash memory format, one that will increase speeds, and more scalability. The new memory format, which is currently in development, should be ready to hit the market by some time in the first half of 2011. The new memory format will bring data transfer speeds up to 300Mbps, according to the new report from DigiTimes.
Samsung has announced that it is now mass-producing 40nm-class 8GB DDR3 RAM modules for notebooks. The new RAM is in the form of SoDIMM modules and is being made in UDIMM modules as well. The high-density chips are aimed at the workstation market for CAD/CAM engineers and other pros that need lots of RAM.
Corsair's ePeen has just got a bit larger thanks to the capture of a couple new records for DDR3 memory performance. The RAM used to break the records is the Corsair Dominator GT GTX6 modules. The RAM was able to break the records for dual-channel memory frequency at CAS 7 and CAS 8.
For some people, 64GB of storage may not be enough. Especially on a tablet device that has full access to the iTunes Store, as well as Apple's App Store (for both the iPad and the iPod Touch/iPhone). Racking up the movies, music, and games/apps to fill up 64GB of memory may seem like a feat, but we imagine that it can be a pretty easy endeavor for some. That's why getting an external memory unit is a great fix. So, here's the HyperDrive, manufactured by the guys who brought us the HyperMac batteries. This time it's an external storage unit that, as the title suggests, can connect directly to your magical and revolutionary tablet device from Apple.
Samsung told us they were planning a whole family of Galaxy Tab slates, and having seen the company's component news this morning we're now pretty excited at what those tablets might offer. Samsung Electronics has outed its 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 "Orion" processor, a dual-core chip with five-times the 3D crunching abilities of its predecessor, together with high-performance 8-gigabyte (GB) and 16GB moviNAND flash memory and a pair of back-illuminated CMOS chips for mobile devices, shooting either 5-megapixel or 14.6-megapixel stills.
Even as devices get smaller and thinner, one of the things keeping them from getting too small or thin are the components inside. For example, memory. Despite the fact hard drives (HD) and solid state drives (SSD) are already pretty small, we need them to get smaller if we want even smaller gadgets and toys. We just didn't expect it to get this small. SanDisk has officially unveiled their new 64GB SSD, which is smaller than a postage stamp.
Kingston has been a big name in the memory business for awhile now, especially amongst those that want to grab some good, but relatively cheap memory options. However, Kingston wants to make their name known in every available facet, so that's why they've recently unveiled their new water-cooled DDR3 memory kits, which are specifically targeted for the hardcore gamers out there.
If you plan on ordering one of the new updated iMac computers that Apple unveiled this week, you can save yourself a bit of green by getting the most basic amount of RAM. Apple isn't known for offering good deals when you upgrade memory.
Mac specialty shop OWC has announced memory upgrades specifically for the new iMac computers. Buyers can get 2GB of PC10600 1333MHz SO-DIMM RAM for $59.99. If that isn’t enough RAM for you a 4GB kit of the same stuff with a pair of 2GB modules will set you back $117.99.
If you want that 4GB of RAM in a single module, you can get it for $144.99. OWC also has kits with 8GB via a pair of those 4GB modules for $279.99 and a 16GB kit with four of the 4GB modules for $549.99.
Smaller is better -- that must be the slogan that SanDisk is banking on with the creation of the Cruzer Blade, which takes small to a whole new level, especially when it comes to USB flash drives. This newly announced piece of tech is about the size of a paperclip, and it actually only weighs about the same as a penny. Yes, that's ridiculous, but there's still plenty of space on the inside to actually be worth your while.
