Micron to Carry Out the Production of TLC Memory Next Year

Memory market, similar to other industries, undergoes certain changes and updates from time to time. Therefore, memory manufacturers are currently trying to comply their production with two major tendencies: considerable drop in demand for RAM, employed basically in desktop PCs, and simultaneous growth of demand for solid-state drives, employed in compact tablets and mobile devices. Besides, the latter is developed at lightning speed.

Micron, one of the leading memory manufacturers, feels like no one else all the changes and fluctuations in the market. Its quarterly reports witness about the relentless drop in demand for DRAM (9% drop at average) for the report period. At the same time, increase in SSD segment is estimated at 5% at average. Sales volume of NOR memory type did not outlive serious changes.

According to the preliminary data, Micron is going to carry out the production of memory on TLC microchips, manufactured under 20 nm technological process. The assumed …

ASRock Surfaces J3355B-ITX Mainboard

ASRock enters the market with a mainboard, targeting new Intel Apollo Lake CPUs (14 nm, Intel Goldmont micro-architecture). The J3355B-ITX model is thought to be integrated within laptops or entry-level all-in-one solutions. As seen from the codename, the board is developed in mini-ITX form-factor. It comes equipped with Intel Celeron J3355 processor, operating at 2.0-2.5 GHz frequency. The CPU features 10 W TDP; hence, cooling is backed by a noiseless passive cooler.

ASRock J3355B-ITX accommodates a pair of SO-DIMM slots for DDR3/DDRL3 modules with 1866 MHz frequency (up to 16 GB). The board comes with an integrated Intel HD Graphics 500 GPU that runs at 700 MHz. The connection of drives is realized via two SATA III ports. The incorporated PCIe 2.0 x16 slot is optimal for expansion cards, rather than a VGA card.

To continue, audio subsystem is based on 7.1-channel Realtek ALC887 controller, whereas network facilities are ensured with the help of Realtek RTL8111GR …

Zotac Intros Its Own Version of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Adapter

Zotac International introduces its own version of recently launched reference adapter GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost from Nvidia. As distinct from the reference model, graphics card from Zotac (codename ZT-6120-10M) is a bit overclocked, enjoys an enforced cooling system with a voluminous heatsink and a pair of large fans.

Similarly to the original, Zotac GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost is equipped with Nvidia GPU Boost technology that empowers dynamic overclocking and, as a result, dramatically improves the card’s performance. In addition, this option automatically identifies when GPU is physically able to heighten the frequencies and ‘wring out’ the maximal efficiency from it.

Those gamers, who are keen on enhancing their system’s performance, are free to employ Nvidia SLI facility that helps in uniting two GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost graphics cards with the purpose to double the performance. The list of all basic specifications is given below:

— GPU and frequencies: …
