G.Skill Intros

G.SKill announces the DDR4-4600MHz CL19-- a DDR4 memory kit promising "extreme performance" built using hand-selected Samsung B-die IC components and aluminium heatspreaders in either black or white.

Designed for dual-channel operation on the Intel X299 HEDT platform, the kit offers total capacity of 16GB (8GB X2), and promises the kind of speed that "was only achievable under extreme overclocking with liquid nitrogen cooling."

Micron Incident Disrupts DRAM Supply

Micron Incident Disrupts DRAM Supply

According to TrendForce, Micron suspended the operations of its Inotera Fab-2 fabrication plant in Taiwan following a malfunction of a nitrogen gas dispensing system, leading a disruption in DRAM production.

The Fab-2 site accounts 5.5% of global DRAM production, with an output of 60000 wafer starts per month. This means the disruption will lead to a spike in memory prices, at least according to DRAMeXchange, the TrendForce memory price tracking service. Fab-2 produces DRAM used in PCs, servers and mobile devices, and supply chain news site Evertiq claims it is even makes memory for the iPhone.

"Inotera is also mainly responsible for manufacturing Micron’s LPDDR4 products that go into Apple’s supply chain for iPhone," Evertiq says. "The temporary shutdown of Fab-2 could have an impact on shipments of the upcoming new iPhone devices as well."

Micron Updates on GDDR5X, GDDR6 Development

Micron releases an update on the development and production of GDDR5X and GDDR6 memory products-- the company plans to introduce improved GDDR5X chips soon, while GDDR6 is to hit mass production on early 2018.

The company first launched "G5X" memory chips at 10Gbps speeds, but now it supplies them in 10, 11 and 12Gdbps, with production focusing on increasing data rates and yields. Currently, the Nvidia Titan Xp GPU uses "Micron's next-gen G5X at 11.4Gbps, which is now in mass production."

The Corsair Dominator Platinum Special Edition Torque Memory Kits

Corsair adds to the Dominator Platinum memory series with a pair of 32GB DDR 4kits featuring quite the mouthful of a name-- the Dominator Platinum Special Edition Torque.

Essentially a fancy version of the previous Dominator Platinum RAM, the Torque model features a top bar heat-treated to look similar to the exhaust manifolds of high-performance engines. It also carries integrated white LEDs for a bit of extra flair. The black aluminium heatsinks get a brushed metal finish, while the cooling fins are in a fetching shade of orange.

DDR5, NVDIMM-P Standards Ready in 2018

The JEDEC solid state technology association announces development on the DDR5 and DVDIMM-P memory standards is "moving forward rapidly," and should be done by 2018.

DDR5 RAM promises a number of advantages over previous DRAM technologies, including double the density and bandwidth of DDR4, as well as improved channel efficiency and greater power efficiency. It also provides server and client platforms with a more user-friendly interface for performance and power management tweaking.

Optane Memory Reaches Desktop PCs

Optane Memory Reaches Desktop PCs

Intel announces a first Optane product for the consumer market-- cache drive modules designed to reduce loading times through extremely low latency and SSD speeds.

The modules offer limited capacity of only 16 or 32GB, but with latency of under 10 microseconds and peak sequential read speeds reaching 900MB/s Intel claims a performance boost of 28%. The company says storage loads up to 14x faster, while common apps such as Chrome or Outlook load up to 5-6x faster and games can load levels up to 65% faster.

Customers interested in the Optane modules have to keep in mind the requirement of a PC running on a 7th-generation Core (such as Kaby Lake) chipset. Interestingly, AanandTech notes the performance boost is not really felt if one has an SSD as primary storage, meaning the modules are best used in PCs stuck with traditional HDDs.
