  • Corsair shows Macs some love with low latency memory

    [photopress:scaled.corsairmac.png,full,pp_image] Corsair has just announced the world’s first high performance memory modules for the Mac. They’re low latency and tuned for the new Penryn-based MacBooks and MacBook Pros. The new modules feature Serial Presence Detect profile characteristics, which basically amounts to Macs being able to allocate memory when needed in the most… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: 4GB of RAM for that brand new MacBook, MacBook Pro

    Following Apple’s announcement yesterday, OWC is offering owners of the new MacBook and MacBook Pro a sweet deal on 4GB of RAM. Rather than paying Apple another $400 why not give OWC $96? If that weren’t a stellar deal to begin with, they’ll knock off an additional $20 if you send them the stock 2GB of RAM. I may go for this deal, but I’ll probably keep the 2GB just… Read More

  • Quad RAMage! Metaram's chips quadruple your server's RAM capacity

    I’m a little suspicious of this technology, but if it works then it’s certainly cool. Metaram’s new MetaSDRAM chipset sits between the RAM and the controller and acts as a go-between for additional RAM (as far as I can tell). I get the feeling this is a great idea for big servers like company databases but not necessarily for high-performance ones, since memory bandwidth is… Read More

  • Samsung announces GDDR5 RAM; what happened to 4?

    I just got a great new motherboard and one of its selling points was support for DDR3 RAM. Tom’s Hardware recently posted a shootout showing that DDR3 mobos and RAM were merely a promising, emerging technology. So why is Samsung busting out this alien technology when people are still deciding whether to switch from DDR2? Because this RAM will be integrated with graphics cards (hence… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: 10 percent off memory from Crucial


    I recently upgraded the MacBook from 512MB of RAM to 2GB from Crucial and now it runs like butta. Butta, I tells ya. Crucial makes it easy to find out what RAM you need for your rig and now you can get 10 percent off. Select parts are in the promotion so check out the site and order anytime from Friday, Nov. 23 to Monday, Nov. 26, 2007. There’s even free shipping within the… Read More

  • Photo frame adorned with RAM is pretty, geeky

    It’s not a digital frame but it’s plenty geeky. I just showed this to the little lady and she’s not on board with having this item in our house so maybe some of you can get a little joy out of this photo frame made out of old sticks o’ random access memory. The best part about it being non-digital and made with old crap-ass RAM is that it’s cheap. Like $15, cheap. Read More

  • Crucial Makes Picking RAM Easy, Even Your Mom Can Do It

    Figuring out what type of RAM you need for your PC or Mac can be a cumbersome task if you don’t know what the difference between DDR and DDR2 is. We’re all bargain shoppers to a certain extent and we want to get the cheapest RAM possible, but unless you or a friend know what you’re doing then you could buy something that won’t even work on your rig and that sucks.

  • Samsung Is The RAM King: 4GB Modules, More Efficient and Faster

    Samsung has figured out a way to stack DRAM modules on top of each other, which should eventually lead to—you guessed it—faster and more efficient memory. Separately, it’ll also permit Samsung to create 4GM RAM modules, which is a first. The new technique is called wafer-level-processed stacked package, or WSP, which essentially lets Samsung snap memory modules onto each… Read More

  • Corsair's Premium Flash Voyager GT USB Drives Go Really Fast


    Corsair announced an update today to its Flash Voyager line of USB drives by adding a “GT” to the end of the name and changing the color from blue to red. Oh, and the company hand picks the NAND flash for each one and is using a new flash controller with enhanced dual channel and interleave memory technologies. What’s all this mean my friends? Put simply: Speed. As the sizes… Read More

  • Kingston Adds 2GB Sticks To Its Laptop ValueRAM Lineup


    If you’re rocking a particularly small, small-form-factor PC or are looking to get a little extra performance out of your laptop, you’ll want to pay attention to this. Kingston Technology, memory-vendor extraordinaire, has made available 2GB 533MHz and 667MHz ValueRAM SO-DIMMs. Although, by “Value” it simply means that the modules don’t fall under the… Read More

  • Corsair Introduces Dominator RAM With Cooling Fans

    is a more technical explanation on what CAS means. Only the most demanding users will grab this, partially thanks to the $600 price tag on the fanned model and the $400 for the non-fanned model. Pretty expensive, but if you want the top performance for your gaming rig, you’d better hope your mommy and daddy are willing to bump up your allowance. Corsair DRAM Adds Cooling Fan [Extreme… Read More
