We have 7200Mbps speed here with the DDR5 module, double the performance of DDR4 -- all while using 13% less power. Samsung says its DDR5 has lower leakage, more performance, and it's not even the first time the company has worked with HKMG material. Samsung used HKMG process technology in its GDDR6 memory back in 2018.

Samsung's new 512GB DDR5 memory module is using through-silicon via (TSV) technology in order to stack 8 x 16Gb DRAM chips. Don't expect DDR5 in your gaming PC anytime soon, as the first destinations for this next generation technology for cloud-based datacenters, big networking systems, AI, supercomputers, machine learning, and more.

Elon Musk on Neuralink BCI demo: will show 'Matrix in the Matrix' tech

Anthony Garreffa | Thu, Aug 27 2020 9:11 PM CDT

Neuralink will be showing off their brain-computer interface (BCI) technology on August 28, with the Elon Musk-backed company teasing some rather big -- and cryptic, things.

Musk tweeted out on July 31 that the upcoming Neuralink BCI demonstration would be showing the world "neurons firing in real-time on August 28". He finished off the tweet with "the matrix in the matrix", which is a gigantic tease on its own.

The limitation of communicating, using, or accessing technology has always been the input -- typing, or speaking into a smartphone, laptop, console, or TV. Our brains and our input methods are slow, but computers can transfer over a trillion bits of data per second -- humans are too slow.

For now that is, and maybe Neuralink's new brain-computer interface is the answer. I guess we'll find out on August 28.

  • Fun note: I remembered while writing this story that August 28 felt familiar, and then it clicked: Judgment Day is August 29, 1997 in the Terminator franchise. So we are almost 23 years to the day of Skynet (a neural-based artificial intelligence) wipes out the human race. We (the humans) built the computers (that would later turn into Skynet, obliterating us all, in Terminator).
