Toshiba shipping 32 nm NAND flash already

Just two months ago we were talking about Toshiba and their new 32 nm NAND flash memory, and though it was supposed to not see consumers' hands until the fall, it's now available in a limited capacity.

The flash memory will be available for mass consumption by July. The new process employed here uses a 32-gigabit chip, which is 4GB, and when stacked 8 tall, you end up with 32GB of total memory in one tiny space.

While we don't know who will receive the larger flash memory first, it does seem likely that Toshiba will be providing the memory for the iPhone 3.0. The company also notes that USB storage with the new memory capacity will be their first products to carry the 32 nm chip.

Netbook parts scarce claim analysts; Atom overstocked argue others

Netbook parts scarce claim analysts; Atom overstocked argue others

The netbook market used to be simple.  Small screen, Atom N270 under the hood, slap on a budget tag and cross your fingers.  Now, things are getting far more complex: more processor options from different manufacturers, plus more screen sizes than ever expected.  According to DRAMeXchange, components and parts supplies for netbooks are sufficient to only meet 50 to 70-percent of market demand, leading vendors to consider pushing up prices.

After the cut: is Atom overstocked, or in short-supply?

Sony VAIO P Summer refresh tipped: faster Atom?

Sony VAIO P Summer refresh tipped: faster Atom?

According to the latest model numbers dug up by Sony Insider, it looks as though Sony are preparing six new variants of the "it's not a netbook" VAIO P ultraportable.  The codes - which jump from the 500-series of the current generation to a new 700-series - suggest the same array of color options, but also specification updates: VGN-P710T/B, VGN-P710T/R, VGN-P710T/G, VGN-P710T/W and the VGN-P730A/Q and VGN-P730T/Q.

Toshiba develops World’s fastest and largest non-volatile RAM

Toshiba develops World’s fastest and largest non-volatile RAM

Toshiba Japan has announced the first working prototype of a new FeRAM non-volatile RAM, claiming world’s most advanced 128MB chip with combination of performance and density to date that's capable of an ultra fast read/write speed of 1.6GB per second.

The accomplishment also set a new millstone in non-volatile RAM development by breaking its own record of 32-megabit density and 200-megabit data transfers, pushing performance and density to eight times faster than previous records of any non-volatile RAM.
