Lenovo K80 takes on ASUS ZenFone 2 with 4GB RAM, price tag

ASUS may have just launched its 4 GB RAM toting ZenFone 2 in some markets, including India, but looks like it immediately has some competition in China. Lenovo has just unveiled the K80, it's own take on a smartphone that fully utilizes the 64-bit powers of its CPU. But the Lenovo K80 isn't just gunning for the ASUS ZenFone 2 in RAM alone. It is taking it on almost spec by spec, but slightly winning over its rival when it comes to battery size and the price tag.

ASUS ZenFone 2 with 4GB RAM switches through games with ease

The advent of 64-bit processors on mobile was seen to herald support for more RAM inside smartphones and tablets. But to this day, you can probably count on the fingers of one hand the devices that come with even 4 GB of memory. The ASUS ZenFone 2 is one of those, bearing 4 GB of RAM inside. But what does that exactly mean in practice? YouTube user L BS provides a video demonstrating just that, swiftly and smoothly multi-tasking between one of the most resource intensive type of mobile apps: games.

Ram takes wraps off Texas Ranger concept pickup truck

Ram takes wraps off Texas Ranger concept pickup truck

Ram has introduced a new pickup truck concept at the Dallas Auto Show, and most fittingly that truck is called the Texas Ranger. Chuck Norris jokes aside, the Texas Ranger aims to appeal to Texans' love of trucks, and brings with its a distinct Ram 1500 design flavor and a Texas Ranger badge insignia in various places, lending a visual to the name. The concept isn't surprising, given that Texans drive more trucks than drivers in any of the other states; Ram says its truck sales in the state are about 2.5 times higher than its truck sales in the second-slot state.

ASUS ZenFone 2 launches in Taiwan, 4GB RAM model included

ASUS ZenFone 2 launches in Taiwan, 4GB RAM model included

At CES 2015 last January, ASUS made some rather interesting reveals when it came to its smartphone line. It had the ZenFone Zoom, for example, which took a page from Samsung's similarly named line of smartphone cameras. The other highlight, however, was the new ZenFone 2 flagship. In usual ASUS fashion, it married somewhat decent specs with an Intel Atom CPU rarely found inside smartphones. But perhaps more interesting is the 4 GB RAM inside, the highest in any phone. Now that is coming to Taiwan, but it isn't alone.

Samsung’s ready for the 4GB smartphone in 2015

Samsung’s ready for the 4GB smartphone in 2015

Samsung has struck up production of 4GB mobile memory, paving the way for smartphones and tablets with more working memory than ever in 2015. The chips, which Samsung Electronics claims are an industry-first of 8 gigabit (Gb), low power, double data rate 4 (LPDDR4) mobile DRAM, are built on 20nm processes, and have not only the benefit of being faster than their predecessors - and, Samsung says, faster than their desktop and server counterparts in fact - also use less power, something unsurprisingly of vital importance when it comes to a mobile device. While it's big news for the chip firm, the implications are broader than just for the next flagship Galaxy, however.

New iPhones, iPads to have more RAM, source claims

Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, followed closely by the refreshed iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, brought us some of the best hardware of 2014. Leading into the launch of those devices, we’d heard a seemingly endless rumor cycle regarding both what they’d look like, but also what Apple may have planned for the software side of things. The iPad Air, specifically, was believed to have a split-screen mode where you could use two apps at once. A new rumor regarding more RAM hints the next hardware release may support that feature.

HP Labs’ memristor can turn RAM into SSDs

HP has what it calls "The Machine", practically a researcher's plaything for experimenting on emerging computer technologies. One such technology that is already quite close to becoming a reality is HP's "memristor", a portmanteau of "memory" and "resistor" that could forever blur the boundaries between non-volatile disk storage and and volatile RAM.
