Buffalo herds DDR3 RAMs into DriveStation's spinning rust corrals

Storage hardware maker Buffalo has given its latest drives a hefty DDR3 RAM cache boost, putting them on par with flash memory's data access times, they claim. The 2TB and 3TB DriveStation DDR models utilise a USB 3.0 interface. Buffalo says read speeds are up past 330MB/sec, with write speeds topping 400MB/sec. So 800MB of …

DDR 4 sets the pace for fast memory

Extreme Hardware Reducing the size of chips has benefits beyond those seen in CPUs and GPUs. One other key component to gain an advantage is memory. The specification of the next generation of memory module, DDR 4 (DDR stands for 'double data rate'), is currently being finalised ahead of its anticipated launch later this year. It will use less …

AMD touts LRDIMM memory for x86 servers

It looks like Advanced Micro Devices is first to market with support for load reduced DIMM DDR3 main memory for x86 and quite possibly all kinds of servers, and is trotting out Inphi, the maker of the isolation memory buffer chip that is at the heart of this technology. With LRDIMM memory, you take out the register on a DDR3 …

Samsung bakes lower-voltage server memory

Those hyperscale data centers that are trying to cram 10 pounds of servers into a 5-pound rack have gotten a little more help from Korean memory maker Samsung Electronics. The leading edge, low-voltage DDR3 main memory runs at 1.35 volts and burns a bit less juice than normal 1.5 volt memory modules. And now, Samsung is …

RAM prices set to 'free fall'

Not content with merely rolling downhill, the price of RAM is set to drop off a cliff as the PC market slows, according to IHS iSuppli. The average selling price for DDR3 with 2 gigabit density, which is the bellwether DRAM product, is projected to drop to $1.60 in the third quarter, down 24 per cent from $2.10 in the second …

Rambus gets Tosh top-up

Toshiba has renewed a five-year memory licensing agreement with Rambus, providing a plentiful flow of royalty dollars to the litigious company. The deal is concerned with intellectual property relating to speeding up SDR, DDR, DDR2, and DDR3 memory chip performance, as well as some other DRAM chip types. The royalties will …

DRAM prices plunging into 2011

If you are out shopping for a server or a PC, you're going to be able to buy a box with considerably more memory than you could a year ago. With DRAM prices expected to fall through 2011, the longer you wait to buy, the more memory you are going to get for the money. According to chip market watcher iSuppli, as memory makers …

Netlist's HyperCloud memory gets Wall Street's blessing

Right about now, server memory module maker Netlist is probably wishing that it hadn't already gone public. But if the enthusiasm in a new public offering by investors on Wall Street last Friday is any indication, Netlist may be onto something with its new HyperCloud DDR3 super-dense main memory for servers. As The Register …

Netbooks to see speed boost this year

Expect to see Atom-based netbooks speed up a little in the latter half of the year when Intel releases upgraded Atom CPUs able to talk to faster memory than the current lot can manage. Today's top-of-the-line netbook Atom, the 1.66GHz N450, connects to DDR 2 Ram through its built-in memory controller. Later this year, Intel …

Rambus threads DDR3 memory

Rambus has devised a way of making DDR3 memory multi-threaded, so that it can better support multi-core servers. It has worked with Kingston Technology to build a threaded module prototype using DDR3 DRAM technology. The two say early results show an improvement in data throughput of "up to 50 per cent, while reducing power …

Micron preps fat DDR3 server memory

Memory maker Micron Technology says that it has cooked up the first DDR3 main memory modules for servers to make use of a new technology, called load-reduced dual-inline memory module (LRDIMM) packaging. The new packaging will not only allow server makers to put fatter memory sticks into their boxes, but more of them than they …

Rambus pitches XDR2 for future memory

Hot on the heels of the US Federal Trade Commission's decision two weeks ago to drop a seven-year antitrust lawsuit against Rambus, the memory chip designer is pitching its bag of technology tricks, collectively known as XDR2, as the future of main memory and graphics memory for PCs and servers. If you are a cynic, you might …

Meltdown mauls memory market

Memory makers have taken it on the chin during the ongoing Meltdown, but prices of DDR2 memory are now rising while some reports indicate that DDR3 prices are set to fall. According to memory-market watcher DRAMeXchange, DDR2 prices - which have endured a long but steady slide for well over a year - are beginning to rise as …
