Samsung Introduces First 30nm DDR3 RAM

Samsung today announced a new 30nm DDR3 RAM module, coming in 2GB and 4GB sticks that are designed to keep power consumption low, about 66% more power efficient than a regular chip, in fact. The chip still hits a 1.6Mbps peak bandwidth.

The most optimal use of these new RAM modules would be laptops and netbooks that require less memory and a low power draw, thus enhancing overall battery life. The memory modules will be available in both single and twin packs depending on your needs.

AMD Announces G-Series APU

AMD has just announced its new G-series platform, the world’s first combination of a lower-power CPU, coupled with an advanced GPU that is integrated into a single embedded Accelerated Processing Unit. The G-series has the core focus of producing more for less power.

These APUs carry thermal design power ratings between 5.5 and 6.4 watts, leading to a 39% power savings compared to previous versions.

The G-series APU ships in a 361mm2 package that allows compact use, perfect for modern netbooks and notebooks. AMD claims that the new G-series APUs offer up to three times the performance per watt compared to previous generations.

Solar Powered Prison Facilities Save $55M
