New RAM promises longer battery life for ultrathin and Ultrabook devices.

As technology has grown exponentially in the past decade or so, turning handheld devices into small computers capable of browsing the internet faster than the AOL dial up modem days in the not so distant past, the demand to make these devices faster and store more information has grown rapidly.  Phones now act as computers, planners, calendars, gaming devices, and sharp and clear photos.  With all of this innovation comes a great demand for more storage capability in these devices. In this race for developing this technology, one company stands out amongst the others: Micron.

Micron has quietly developed 2Gb and 4Gb chips consume a substantially less amount of power than the standard PC Dram, while offering the same high performance and cost effectiveness.  The company is currently working on an 8Gb chip that would provide even more which would increase the memory capabilities substantially.  The improved power consumption is achieved by reducing the self refresh power to keep the data in memory.  This memory is on it’s way to being used in mobile devices based on the Intel 7 series/c216 chipsets.  In other words, Micron continues to set the standard in terms of developing cost effective and power saving components in the computer world.

    Aw, this was a very nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to create
    a great article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot
    and never manage to get nearly anything done.
