Rambus Claims Fully-Functional DDR5 DIMM

E-mail Print PDF

Memory maker Rambus announces what it says is an industry first-- a fully-functional DDR5 DIMM prototype, one capable of "the speeds required for the upcoming DDR5 standard."

DDR5"We are proud to provide an early path to adoption with the first working buffer chip prototype running at the anticipated performance of next-generation DDR5," the company says. "This demonstrates our continued dedication to be first to market and remaining on the leading edge of industry standards."

Standards association JEDEC still has to publish the standard for DDR5, but the memory technology should offer double the bandwidth and the density of DDR4, with improved channel efficiency and greater power efficiency. As such, DDR5 should reach data rates of up to 6.4Gbit/s and deliver a maximum of 51.2GBytes/s, up from the 3.2Gbit/s and 25.6GBytes/s of DDR4.

Intel launches the 8th generation of Coffee Lake desktop processors-- a CPU family built using a 14nm process aimed at "content creators and overclockers who require premium performance."

Intel 8th genThe Coffee Lake family ranges from Core i3 to i7 and, in company firsts, includes a 6-core Core i5 desktop processor and the 4-core i3 desktop processor. For maximum performance Chipzilla offers unlocked "K" processors with per-core overclocking, max memory ratio up to 8400 MT/s, real-time memory latency control, extended PLL trim controls, enhanced package power delivery and updated Intel Extreme Tuning Utility and Extreme Memory Profile.

In further performance enhancements, Intel promises 32% faster (when compared to the previous generation) 4K 360-degree video editing, or up to 65% faster editing compared to a 3-year old PC. All processors also support Z370 chipset-based motherboards.

ZeeVee Shows 4K Compressed AV-Over-IP Switch

ZeeVee expands the ZyPer IP-based distribution platform with the ZyPerUHD, available in both compressed and uncompressed options for delivering 4K over a standard ethernet switch (4K@60Hz 4:2:0).

Zeevee encoderThe ZyPerUHD encoders and decoders provide ultra-low latency (less than 2 frames, ZeeVee claims) compressed video up to UHD/4K resolution using an off-the-shelf 1Gb ethernet switch. This is means customers can deploy UHD throughout their facility, and even interconnect campuses while leveraging existing IP infrastructure.

Qumulo Launches "Universal-Scale" File Storage System

E-mail Print PDF

Qumulo presents what it claims is the first "universal-scale" file storage system-- Qumulo File Fabric (QF2), a next-generation storage system able to create a single file domain spanning on-premises datacentres and the cloud.

QumuloDesigned to work to both own datacentres and the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud, QF2 promises to provide enterprises with storage, management and access of file-based in any operating environment, at petabyte and global scale. It uses cross-cluster replication to move data wherever it is needed, be it on premises and the cloud, with no limit to the amount files used.

The company claims it already has customers with data footprints "in excess of a billion files."

LMNTRIX Brings Ian Murphy as EMEA VP

E-mail Print PDF

LMNTRIX-- the latest brainchild of Carlo Minassian, founder of MSSP pioneer earthwave-- names industry veteran Ian Murphy as vice president leading its EMEA business.

Ian MurphyMurphy has almost 25 years of experience in both private and public sectors. His employers include the UK Ministry of Defence, Symantec and, most recently, DXC Technology, where he was lead security architect. In addition he also worked with multiple channel organisations, including CSC and Dimension Data.

“There’s such a strong desire in the channel to move into advanced threat detection and incident response services, but before LMNTRIX it was either too difficult, too costly or-- more commonly-- both," Murphy says. “What’s so different about LMNTRIX is that its offering is not only revolutionary from a technology stack point of view, but it is also evolutionary for partners as it enables them to take their businesses to the next level.”
