In the first half of August this year, the company Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) publicly announced its intention to reach an entirely new market for itself and submitted to the Court of consumers own first 240-pin DIMM-modules of RAM DDR3, intended for use in the desktop computer systems. Now on the official website appeared eminent chip maker detailed information about technical characteristics of its proposed products of this kind.
Following the announcement of Wide IO-chip company Elpida Memory announced the imminent release of the market such as memory chips chetyrehgigabitnyh LPDDR3, which are aimed at use in mobile devices, the next generation. New items are different data transfer rate up to 1600 Mbit / s at a supply voltage of 1.2 and will be produced using 30-nanometer process technology.
The company BiTMICRO Networks announced the development of two new controllers for the SSD-drives. These chips are aimed at enterprise-class SSDs. New items are able to provide performance in random write operations at the 400,000 IOPS, and also supports up to 5 terabytes of disk space. For comparison, the competitive solution SandForce SF-2000 Series is characterized by a capacity of 60 thousand IOPS.
Because of low demand in the retail channels and by the OEM-manufacturers, contract prices for NAND chips continue to fall in the first half of November, the research agency said DRAMeXchange. Earlier this month, the contract prices MLC-chip mainstream-segment fell by 2-4%. In this case the largest decline recorded for 32-Gb models.
