While Intel was showing off their DDR4 memory reference test platform at IDF13 San Francisco, Kingston was showing their own DDR4, a massive 192 GB kit! The kit was made up of 12 DDR4 16 GB 2133 MHz modules. Seeing that it was made up of 12 modules we assume that it was running on some sort of server platform rather than a normal desktop platform.
Today we are taking a look at some of ADATA’s latest DDR3 enthusiast memory. The kit we are checking out today is part of the XPG V2 Series. This series is an upgrade from the original XPG series which was offered in speeds up to 2133 MHz. Now that Haswell is here and we can have much faster speeds ADATA has come out with the XPG V2 series. This series is available in a wide variety of capacities and speeds to suit pretty much anyone’s needs. The memory we are taking a look at today is their 8GB dual channel DDR3-2400 kit. This kit comes with timings of 11-13-13-35 at 1.65v and offers a very attractive gold heatspreader. Read on as we take a look…
Avexir has just announced their Core Gold Series memory kits which come with yellow LED accent lights. This color scheme will fit many new Haswell motherboards which have gold accent colors. The Core Gold Series also supports XMP 1.3 for easy initial setup.
California chip startup Crossbar has revealed what it declares as the first commercially viable Resistive RAM (RRAM) memory chip, a new generation of non-volatile memory capable of storing up to 1TB of data on a single 200mm2 chip.
The development of mobile memory chips is becoming faster day by day. It’s not been eight months since those speedy eMMC 4.5 chips were introduced and now Samsung’s next version of NAND is already here. Indeed, the South Korean company says it’s now in mass production of what it believes as the world’s fastest embedded memory.
Apacer has just introduced the ARES DDR3-3000 series with record-breaking clock rate reaching DDR3 3226 MHz at 2013 Computex Taipei. The ARES series is actually available in 2800 MHz, 2933 MHz and of course 3000 MHz options. Apacer will be offering two different dual-channel capacities: 8 GB (2x 4 GB) and 16 GB (2x 8 GB).
Mushkin will be expanding both their Stealth and Redline memory lines with new 2800 MHz kits. These DDR3 kits will be available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB kits with timings of 12-14-14-35 at 1.65V. The Stealth line has a sleek black matte design and is made for value and performance. Redline on the other hand has a vibrant red design and is made for overclockers.
We have been a huge fan of Avexir memory since they first came out. Their modules offer great performance, but I’m sure many of you know them for their colorful designs which will really light up the inside of your case. At Computex they are showing a few different memory modules to go with certain motherboards, of course ones that light up and a very unique PCI-Express light accessory.
We have not heard much from Crucial lately, but they do have some good announcements coming out of Computex this week. They have announced new additions to their Ballistix performance memory product family. These new additions include Crucial Ballistix Sport XT DDR3 memory kits and Crucial Ballistix Sport SODIMMs.
