Corsair has introduced a new addition to its memory lineup, and it is one that features a blazing speed. The Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 3400MHz 16GB (4x4GB) memory kits are performance-tuned to run at that speed and beyond on the new Gigabyte X99-SOC Champion motherboard. That motherboard was used to run this memory kit at 4365.6MHz under liquid nitrogen back on Friday, but you don't need LN2 for your day-to-day use. The Dominator Platinum RAM features an orange anodized heat spreader to match the color scheme on the Gigabyte board, and use DHX technology to run cooler, longer. The RAM can also be customized with "light pipes" for unique downwash lighting and works with Corsair Link for real-time temperature monitoring. Each Dominator Platinum DDR4 3400MHz kit features hand-picked ICs and tuned timing parameters to get the most possible performance out of them and the motherboard.

The Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 3400MHz 16GB memory kits are available now from Corsair's website for $999.99. Each one comes with a lifetime warranty.

Author: ClayMeow


Corsair has announced the availability of two new product lines of high-speed DDR4 memory: Vengeance LPX and Dominator Platinum. Both lines use the new XMP 2.0 profile with support for the upcoming next-generation Intel X99 platforms and Intel Core i7 Haswell-E processors. DDR4 memory delivers twice the bandwidth as DDR3 with 2133 MT/s speeds while using a lot less power (1.2 volts compared to 1.5 and 1.65 volts), which in turn generates less heat. For now, DDR4 is limited to 8GB modules with a maximum of 32GB on standard four-slot motherboards, but by 2015, DDR4 will support 16GB modules with a maximum of 128GB on eight-slot motherboards.

The specifications for both the Vengeance LPX and Dominator Platinum DDR4 lines are as follows:

  • Unbuffered DDR4 SDRAM in 288-pin DIMM
  • Capacities at launch: 8GB (2x4GB), 16GB (4x4GB), 32GB (4x8GB) and 64GB (8x8GB)
  • Speeds at launch: 2666MHz, 2800MHz, and 3000MHz
  • Intel XMP 2.0 (Extreme Memory Profile) support

The Vengeance LPX line is "designed for high-performance overclocking with a low-profile heatspreader made of pure aluminum for faster heat dissipation" along with an eight-layer PCB to help manage heat. Kits are available in black, red, white, and blue.

The Dominator Platinum line, like its DDR3 brethren, "have a striking industrial design for good looks, patented DHX technology for cooler operation, user-swappable colored 'light pipes' for customizable downwash lighting, and Corsair Link compatibility for real-time temperature monitoring."

Both lines will be available worldwide at the end of August, and of course come with a limited lifetime warranty.

Toshiba and SanDisk Suing Hynix Over Suspected Flash Memory Technology Theft

Author: ClayMeow

Yesterday, "a former SanDisk engineer suspected of improperly providing technical data to Hynix," was arrested by Tokyo police. Today, Reuters is reporting that partners Toshiba and SanDisk have separately filed civil lawsuits against Hynix, seeking damages due to the suspected theft. While Hynix says it has not received the litigation yet, both Toshiba and SanDisk have confirmed the suits.

Toshiba, based in Japan, filed the suit with the Tokyo District Court. It estimates that the alleged leak resulted in "losses of at least 100 billion yen ($980 million)," but did not disclose whether that was the amount it was seeking. SanDisk, based in the United States, filed its suit in Santa Clara Superior Court, "seeking damages, an injunction and other remedies." Toshiba and SanDisk have been "partners in flash memory technology for nearly 15 years."

Back in 2004, Toshiba sued Hynix "for the breach of its flash memory patents," seeking damages and an injunction. The case was settled through a cross-licensing agreement with Hynix, so it'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

Author: tpsreport

Flash memory manufacturer ATP has added the Velocity SI-Lite SSD to its line up, which is specifically designed and engineered for industrial use with several data integrity technologies. It utilizes Single Level Cell (SLC) NAND Flash components to allow "more than 20 times program/erase life cycles over other MLC Flash based industrial SSDs on the market and with more than 1500TB of total bytes written." 

ATP's PowerProtector, a backup power circuit, protects the SSD in the event of a power failure by providing "sufficient amount of reserve power for any abnormalities such as unstable voltages and power outages." There is also a firmware based "AutoRefresh" feature that launches an automatic Error Correcting Code (ECC) check before failure occurs during read operations. AutoRefresh moves data to healthy blocks on the SSD before failures can even occur, too.

The Velocity SI-Lite SSD will be available in capacities of 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. ATP's Velocity SI-Lite will have sequential read and write speeds of up to 181 MB/s and 133MB/s, 4K Random Read IOPS up to 2,700, a MTBF of over two million hours, and a wide operating tempurature range of -40 ºC to 85 ºC. It is unknown when the Velocity Si-Lite SSD will be available or how much it will cost.

Earlier this week, SanDisk announced the Extreme PRO SDHC/SDXC UHS-II Memory Card. It has SSD-like performance and is the fastest SD memory card in the world, with read speeds up to 280MB/s and write speeds up to 250MB/s. UHS-II enabled DSLRs and video cameras would benefit from the memory card's UHS Speed Class 3 Rating and sustained video capture of 30MB/s to capture Full HD, 3D, and even 4K video. These memory cards will be available in 16GB ($120), 32GB ($150), and 64GB ($300) sizes. The 64GB card would allow the storage of 20 minutes of 4K footage, so would be the obvious choice if you have a 4K-capable camera. Purchase also includes a RescuePRO Deluxe media recovery software. 

The SanDisk Extreme PRO SDHC/SDXC UHS-II Card Reader/Writer ($49.99) was also announced alongside the memory card. This media card reader uses an USB 3.0 interface with a 500 GB/s bandwith to enable the 280 MB/s transfer speeds of SanDisk's Extreme PRO SDHC/SDXC UHS-II Memory Card.

Both items will be available this April, but can be pre-purchased.

Innodisk Introduces DRAM Modules with Protective Coating

Category: Memory
Posted: February 13, 2014 11:15AM
Author: tpsreport

According to Innodisk, DRAM modules with conformal coatings provide "greater reliability, superior service life, improved performance, and reduced total cost of ownership." Conformal coatings, in this case HumiSeal, are protective chemical layers applied to the surface of DRAM modules with thickness varying from .03mm to .13mm. With the exception of the gold conductor interface, the DRAM module surface is completely covered with the coating.

"These coatings protect against moisture, contaminants, dust and acid or alkaline materials, in line with IPC-A-610 standards for electronic components. They also protect against issues caused by electrical or thermal conduction, static electricity, and heat." The coatings conform to MIL-I-46058C standards, basically meaning they can withstand harsh environmental factors commonly encountered in the Defense & Aerospace sector.
