AMD Patents Automatic Memory Overclocking Tool

AMD Patents Automatic Memory Overclocking Tool

AMD has filed a patent for a program that performs automatic memory overclocking to simplify enthusiasts’ lives. The app can automatically test overclocked memory modules for stability and locally store memory overclocking profiles unique to a particular system.   Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) overclocking has existed for decades. At first, companies like Corsair cherry-picked memory…

Samsung Unveils 512GB CXL Memory Expander 2.0

Samsung Unveils 512GB CXL Memory Expander 2.0

When Samsung formally introduced one of the industry’s first Compute Express Link (CXL) memory expanders about a year ago, it largely positioned it as a proof-of-concept product mostly aimed at experimental machines that are not widely deployed. This week the company announced its CXL Memory Expander 2.0 that carries 512GB of DDR5 SDRAM and can add up to 16TB…

(Photo Credit: charnsitr/Shutterstock) Gskill Class Action Lawsuit Overview: Who: A dissatisfied customer filed a class action lawsuit against Gskill. Why: The customer argues that Gskill’s false advertising leads customers to believe its high-speed memory cards can operate at their advertised speed without further manual modifications by the user.  Where: The class action lawsuit was filed…

G.Skill RipJaws V Memory Sticks Must Be ‘Overclocked’ to Achieve Advertised Speeds, Class Action Claims

G.Skill RipJaws V Memory Sticks Must Be ‘Overclocked’ to Achieve Advertised Speeds, Class Action Claims

New to ClassAction.org? Read our Newswire Disclaimer A proposed class action alleges G.Skill USA has falsely advertised its RipJaws V DDR4-3600 MHz plug-in computer memory sticks in that they can only achieve the promised “[b]lazing [f]ast” transfer speeds if their firmware is “overclocked,” which requires additional power and can reportedly compromise the stability of a…

Smart Modular Brings Optane Memory to AMD EPYC Servers

Smart Modular Brings Optane Memory to AMD EPYC Servers

One of the advantages that servers based on Intel’s 2nd and 3rd Generation Xeon Scalable processors have over AMD EPYC-powered machines is support for Optane Persistent Memory modules that can be used to expand main memory capacity relatively cheaply–something that is important for many applications. But Smart Modular has developed a card that can add Optane PMMs to any…

New Platform Lets GPUs and FPGAs Use Intel Optane Memory Modules

New Platform Lets GPUs and FPGAs Use Intel Optane Memory Modules

Liqid, MemVerge, and Intel have developed a platform solution that allows to pool and orchestrate system memory and storage-class memory (SCM) like Intel Optane Persistent Memory (PMem) modules together and then use these ultra-large memory pools with CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and other accelerators. The solution supports not only existing PMems, but also future memory hardware from Intel, and upcoming CXL accelerators.  DRAM is fast,…
