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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
