Displaying items by tag: Memory

OCZ… You remember them right? They were a company that blew up on the market during the heydays of AMD overclocking and performance supremacy. For a number of years they put out some solid products to the enthusiast community and did quite well… At least until other companies started following the same business model. You have companies like Corsair, Kingston Patriot that had always been there, but had not truly catered to the enthusiast market before (especially Kingston).

Avexir brings flashy DDR3 memory


DDR3 memory has been on the market that the new models do not attract attention of virtually anyone except extreme overclockers. Still, here and there an interesting product appears, and in this case it is Avexir Core GOLD memory. Given the name, it is clear that the memory is equipped with refrigerators in golden color which is quite nice considering that many motherboards designed for Haswell processors have golden passive coolers. Particularly interesting detail are yellow LEDs which, as we understand from the press release, flash in accordance with the memory load. This is interesting concept because memory LEDs look very good if the casing has a transparent side panel.

In almost every consumer electronics device there is a bottleneck for performance. It is not always the same item for each family (or even different devices within the same family), but it is always there. In the mobile this bottle neck was the CPU followed by memory. Now mobile devices are running into the same problems that desktops hit about 5 years ago. The performance provided by current storage technologies is being out stripped by CPU (SoC), memory, and even usage patterns of mobile device users. They are demanding more space, more speed and all with better power consumption.
