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.

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: Tobias Thydal

2014 will be the year that DDR4 will slowly start to make its entrance. First to servers and then sometime in 2015 or 2016, it will start to make its way into consumer PCs. And of course mobile devices will not be left out as it is one of the biggests markets for DRAM. Samsung knows this and has therefore developed the industry's first eight gigabit, low power DDR4 (LPDDR4) DRAM. Executive vice president Young-Hyun Jun puts it like this, "This next-generation LPDDR4 DRAM will contribute significantly to faster growth of the global mobile DRAM market, which will soon comprise the largest share of the entire DRAM market."

The 8 Gb LPDDR4 is fabricated on 20 nm process technology. It currently allows up to 1 GB on a single die, which is the highest density available for DRAM today. Furthermore, the new LPDDR4 DRAM will use Low Voltage Swing Terminated Logic (LVSTL) I/O interface to allow for a data tranfer rate twice that of current LPDDR3 DRAM. All in all, the new LPDDR4 interface will provide 50 percent better performance than current LPDDR3 or DDR3 memory. Bear in mind that this is done while consuming roughly 40 percent less power at only 1.1 V.

ADATA Launches DDR4 SDRAM Modules

Category: Memory
Posted: September 10, 2013 12:19PM
Author: Tobias Thydal

DDR3 SDRAM is the standard type of RAM used in today's computers, but its succesor is starting to appear. DDR4 SDRAM is the next generation of DDR SDRAM, and it brings with it some neat improvements. The DDR4 SDRAM is, at launch, expected to achieve data transfer rates up to 3.2 GigaTransfers per second (GT/s) at frequencies of up to 2133 MHz, while using just 1.2 volts. For comparison, DDR3 SDRAM uses between 1.5 to 1.65 volts and was expected to achieve 1.6 GT/s at 1333 MHz at launch. 

ADATA, a Taiwanese memory vendor, wants to be one of the first on the market, and it has therefore announced its first DDR4 SDRAM modules. They will be targeted at server and render farms that can take advantage of the improved data transfer rates, since servers often have to process huge amounts of data, and render farms often needs quick access to data stored in fast RAM. The reduction in power required will also make a noticeable difference, due to the scale of large servers and render farms. However, it might not be more than a year from now before first mover consumers will start to adopt DDR4 SDRAM.
