With Sandy Bridge-E just around the corner now, memory companies are beginning to gear up with supporting quad-channel memory kits for Intel's next gen top tier LGA-2011 platform, with Corsair being first out the gate to expose such a kit when they announced their upcoming Dominator Series quad-channel 32GB kit early last month.
Now german memory maker Exceleram has come forward announcing their plans to release a 32GB quad-channel kit to market in the near future for the aforementioned platform. Falling into their Grand DDR3-Series line, the kit comprises 4x8GB modules and sports red heat spreaders.
Patriot Memory have today announced their new Mac Series XT SSDs and SODIMM lines. Both are optimized for the latest and popular Mac-based products, with the new offerings from Patriot geared toward power users who demand the latest storage and memory technology to increase productivity and performance.
The Patriot Memory Mac Series XT SSDs sport the SandForce SF-2281 SSD processor and synchronous NAND which is quite popular in SSD technology and very, very fast. It's capable of delivering speeds of up to 520MB/sec read and 500MB/sec write, while also offering extended battery life and system responsiveness to MacBook owners. Patriot also ensure the best performance and stability available by testing all Mac Series SSDs at the Apple Developer Compatibility labs for both quality and reliability.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
