There has been growing interest in DRAMs that do not lose their content when the power to them is cut.
AgigA Tech has found a partner to work to bring its non-volatile DRAMs to market: Micron said that it is co-developing the technology with Cypress Semiconductor's subsidiary.
Micron is still trying to make its way through a rather complex process to purchase bankrupt DRAM maker Elpida.
As we are seeing DRAM spot prices trading nearly record lows - a 4 Gb 4DDR3 chip can be purchased for as little as $1.75 - it appears that DRAM makers will not get much relief from the release of Windows 8.
In the virtually never ending story of Rambus' patent infringement lawsuits against DRAM makers, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California found the IP company guilty of destroying case relevant records.
Samsung confirmed that it is now manufacturing 2 GB versions of LPDDR3 memory modules for smartphones and tablets.
Reports coming out of Taiwan suggest that DRAM memory will lose 8 percent of their contract price in August alone.
The Bankruptcy of Elpida still carries the hope that balance in supply and demand will return in the DRAM industry.
Take a trip down memory lane with us as we recall some of the hardware products and software applications that got us hot and bothered about technology when we were younger. From MS-DOS to 3dfx, our list of favorites is fairly diverse.
