Memory sales at a snail's pace
The world's second-largest memory chipmaker,SK Hynix posted a $822 million in operating profit for the fourth quarter last year which is down 40.7 percent. Apparently demand for memory chips is sluggish.
Available in 128GB, 64GB and 32GB capacities
Corsair has unveiled three new high-performance Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM kits, that will be available in 128GB, 64GB and 32GB capacities and ranging from 3,000MHz to 3,600MHz.
For Intel X99 platform
While 64GB might sound like an overkill to some, G.Skill has now unveiled its new 128GB DDR4 Ripjaws V memory kit, designed for content creation workstation and meant to be used on an Intel X99 Express chipset platform.
Based on four 16GB modules and tight latency
G.Skill has announced its highest capacity DDR4 memory kit so far, the 64GB DDR4-3200 Trident Z which is based on four 16GB modules and Samsung chips.
Exclusive: Highest end are HBM 2.0, GDDR6, GDDR5X
AMD over-hyped the new High Bandwidth Memory standard and now the second generation HBM 2.0 is coming in 2016. However it looks like most of GPUs shipped in this year will still rely on the older GDDR5.
From 2133MHz to 2800MHz
G.Skill has announced its new Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMM kits that will be available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB kits with frequency hitting as high as 2800MHz.
The future of graphics
High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) will define the future of graphics and it looks like Samsung will be ready to release products using the technology soon.
Running on Z170 motherboard
While DDR4 is currently the main memory when it comes to frequency overclocking records, Corsair has decided to demo a 4000MHz clocked Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory at IDF 2015 show in San Francisco.
