Toshiba have announced the world's first 64GB SDXC memory card, capable of data transfer speeds of up to 35MB per second writes and up to 60MB per second reads. Scheduled to go into mass production in Spring 2010, the 64GB SDXC is aimed at high-resolution digital cameras and HD camcorders.
A-DATA have introduced 4GB DDR3 DRAM single-modules into their range of performance memory. The new capacity stick will be available across the company's U-DIMM desktop RAM, SO-DIMM laptop RAM and unbuffered ECC-DIMM/ECC Registered DIMM RAM workstation/server lines.
Corsair are today re-releasing their Dominator GT ultra-performance DRAM, after pulling the chips from the market earlier this year due to "unacceptable failure levels of the Elpida "Hyper" components" used in their manufacturer. Now using new new materials, the re-launched Dominator GT chips are available in 4GB and 6GB kits for Intel and AMD high-performance processors.
It seems Samsung just hit a first today. They've announced their 2-gigabit or 256MB DDR3 RAM chip, which is the first to be mass produced using their 40-nanometer process.
The great thing about this process is that it allows the company to mass produce very dense chips without upping their power consumption. This keeps costs down as well. The idea here is to offer up 4GB RAM for notebooks and 16GB RAM for servers.
These new chips contain twice as much bandwidth as the old 1 gigabit chips. We don't know at this time how much the RAM will cost or when it will be made available, but you can count on these chips being available pre-installed in computer offerings first.
Sonyannounced the latest addition to the their Memory Stick Pro-HG Duo HX line today with a 32GB version that's bigger than everything that's come before it. In fact, it's twice as large as Sony's previous model.
Lexar announced two new memory cards today that offer up higher capacities for phone and camera users. First up is the 16GB microSDHC card, which features 34nm technology and can hold up to 4,000 songs.
We can't say we looked at the Sharp Mebius NJ70A netbook - with its nifty touchscreen trackpad - and thought "what this needs is a second touchscreen", but then we're not SKY at UMPC Fever. After unboxing the N270-based netbook, he loaded up Windows 7 and then installed a touchscreen layer so as to use handwriting recognition direct onto the 10-inch display.
Supposedly, Samsung has done something completely different today by announcing their 32GB DDR3 RAM stick. In fact, the company is claiming this is the first 32GB DDR3 RAM, ever, which is pretty impressive.
Different types of RAM may not be as exciting or glossy as different ultraportables, say, or the latest CULV netbook, but it can have a whole lot of impact on how enjoyable the end result turns out to be. Micron have announced a new high-performance, low-power DDR3 memory, which the company claims uses the industry's lowest 1.35V one-gigabit DDR3 components.
Apple have been coy about the definitive hardware specifications for their new iPhone 3G S, refusing to confirm exactly how much more RAM and what exact processor jump the smartphone has over the previous-gen iPhone 3G. However nobody obviously told T-Mobile Netherlands about the veil of silence: they've outed the processor as a 600MHz chip, paired with 256MB of RAM.
