CES - Samsung Develops World's First DDR4 RAM

CES just wouldn't be the same without its fair share of "World's first" claims. So, keeping up with tradition is Samsung, which has announced that it has created the World's first DDR4 DRAM.

Samsung's new 30-nanometer-process memory modules are said to run at more than twice the speed of current DDR3 modules, and will also use less power.

Samsung says that typical DDR3 memory modules available today use around 1.5V of electrical current, whereas its new DDR4 modules will use just 1.2V.

Data transfer speeds on the new DDR4 module can reach 2.133Gbps, according to the company, but it could eventually reach higher speeds of up to 4Gbps.

This all sounds very impressive, but gave no details as to when we can expect DDR4 to hit the market. Oh, CES, you geek tease.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
