The MacBook Pro is never going to be an impulse purchase, not for most people, but you can rely on Apple to offer the sort of upgrade options that will make even the well-heeled pause for thought. An 8GB DDR3 upgrade is now available for the notebook, but it'll set you back a cool $1,200.
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.
NEC have developed a 32Mb MRAM chip that, thanks to the company's efforts to miniturize the control circuits, allows 73-percent of a memory macro's area to be allocated to memory cells. The MRAM chip, which is intended for SoC (System-on-Chip) products such as those found in embedded and mobile devices, is also compatible with asynchronous SRAM.
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.
Corsair has today taken the wraps off its fastest DDR3 Dominator FT family designed to work for Intel Core i7-based processors. Announcement of the new Dominator GT features a bright racing red color scheme with company’s patent’s-pending Dual-path Heat exchange (DHX) technology high-end stick with remarkably low latencies (7-8-7) running at high frequency of 2000Mhz.
It seems like yesterday we read about Samsung achievement in high density and power efficient 50 nanometer memory chip; today, the company have announced another milestone with improved 40 nanometer DRAM memory technology, and promised to deliver 60 percent more productivity and less energy waste than the 50nm class device.
Samsung Electronics have put 50 nanometer’s memory technology and manufacturing processes in good uses. Developed from the new technology, higher density and more power efficient chipsets were achieved to fabricate a single stick 4GB DDR3 SDRAM chip.
The Eye-Fi folks are at it again, this time announcing a new technology they plan to integrate into their Wi-Fi enabled memory cards. You were able to wirelessly upload photos before, and soon, you'll be able to upload video.
