G.Skill RipjawsZ ready to tear it up on X79

By: Array

While still a few weeks away, we're able to give you a little peak at a kit that's going to see the light of day later in the month when X79 launches. The new RipjawsZ series from G.Skill are designed for the new Intel platform and look absolutely fantastic following that Black / Blue design we've seen from the company before.

Consisting of four 4GB modules, the up and coming kit brings with it a total of 16GB of DDR3 RAM running at PC3-17000 or 2133MHz DDR. Taking a closer look at the modules we get a better idea what's going on with the timings. As you can see we've got a 9-11-9-28 setup that requires a grand total of 1.65v.

AMD is not committing to its entry in the DDR3 memory market

By: Array

Despite this news heavily circulating the web recently, it turns out that apparently AMD has no definitive plans to dabble long term in the DDR3 memory market. This comes as quite the surprise, though, given AMD even had a dedicated page on their own site indicating three new Radeon branded memory series in the lineup that looked to be aimed directly at the consumer market.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20479_04_amd_is_not_committing_to_its_entry_in_the_ddr3_memory_market.png

 

As it so turns out, the AMD Radeon branded modules spotted in random stores in Japan and even reports of some having been seen in Canada, were supposedly entered into the retail market in minimal quantity to ascertain whether or not it was a viable venture for AMD to distribute the series' through channel partners in the future.

AMD extends Radeon branding into the DDR3 memory market

By: Array

Big news from AMD today with word (and evidence) coming out that they are branching out their "Radeon" branding from VGA into the DDR3 memory market as well, not just to OEMs, but directly into consumers hands.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20415_01_amd_extends_radeon_branding_into_the_ddr3_memory_market.jpg

 

Website PC Watch was the first to get the scoop (including images) that AMD is in fact entering the DDR3 memory market with "Radeon memory". Even AMD's website now backs it up with a dedicated page on their website detailing "AMD Radeon™ Memory for Systems" - with three series under the lineup thus far in the Entertainment, ULTRA PRO Gaming and Enterprise series'.

 

It's not surprising that AMD is targetting the modules directly for use in their own platforms. The first batch of modules entering the series are 2GB in density a piece, with the Entertainent series module operating at 1333MHz w/ timings of 9-9-9, the ULTRA PRO Gaming running 1600MHz (11-11-11 timings) and the Enterprise series memory of which specific info is yet to be disclosed.

Corsair boosts overclocking potential with Dominator GT 1.5v 2133MHz 8GB kit

By: Array

Corsair has injected its impressive Dominator GT series of DDR3 modules with a shiny new 8GB DDR3-2133MHz dual channel kit today, capable of running at said speed using just 1.5v - this is with stock timings of CL 9-11-9.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20227_01_corsair_boosts_overclocking_potential_with_dominator_gt_1_5v_2133mhz_8gb_kit.jpg

 

Given the super low voltage, this makes the kit very attractive for overclockers with plenty of headroom. The kit uses Corsair's iconic DHX+ heatsinks and will come bundled with the AirFlow 2 GTL Cooling Fan to help really push the memory north without the issue of heat buildup limiting your overclock.

 

The kit, codenamed CMT8GX3M2A2133C9 is backed by Corsair's lifetime warranty and can be purchased directly off their site very soon at $499 USD.

DDR4 to make a 2014 debut, takes DDR3 over by 2015

By: Array

iSuppli have come out and said that DDR3 modules will remain the dominant DRAM tech throughout 2011 and flowing right into 2012, 2013 and even into 2014 before DDR 4 arrives in its next-generation glory. DDR3 RAM currently represents 85 to 90-percent of today's DRAM market and that will swell to 94-percent by 2013. But in 2014, iSuppli is predicting that DDR4 will emerge out of the flames of the DRAM market with a 12-percent share, within a year they expect this number to expand to 56-percent leading DDR3 with just 42-percent of the market.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20052_211_ddr3_to_make_a_2014_debut_takes_ddr3_over_by_2015.jpg

 

As you can see from the above chart, DDR3 really is the current champion and with 4GB DIMMs available so cheaply these days, it'll be a very hard switch to DDR4 for most people. Keepign in mind that DDR3 launched in 2007, that makes it a seven year life span for DDR3 until it gets some proper competition. Also keep in mind that whilst DDR3 launched in 2007, it was just too expensive for most users to change over to, but we know this has changed considerably over the years. DDR4 will most likely debut at huge prices and eventually fall just like all tech.
