If the power savings and performance claims pan out, these DIMMs will be popular in large memory applications — VM servers, in-memory databases — where DRAM power is a significant cost and more performance is always welcome.
Storage is what makes a computer your computer. Robin Harris writes about storage and other tech with a focus on the SOHO/SMB market. And fun stuff, too, like PS3 supercomputers and Google's technology.

Seagate has announced a new 8TB disk it's shipping to selected customers today with general availability next quarter. Should you care?
A reader wrote in to ask about a 10Gb Ethernet network for home use. Sorry. Thunderbolt is the home network price and performance leader - not Ethernet. What happened?
You're having a coffee and surfing when an apologetic stranger asks if she can charge her Android phone on your USB port. But she's installing malware on your PC. Here's how to stop it.
They could be hack proof - or much less hackable - if security were built into them instead of bolted on. Here's an example of what that means.
It doesn't matter how many leading-edge sensors it has or how beautiful and stylish it is. If the iWatch doesn't get power right it will fail. Here's two Apple technologies that will set the iWatch apart from competitors.
They keep cramming more transistors on chips every year while performance gains have slowed to a crawl. Why not put DRAM on-chip to speed up CPUs?
Surveillance cameras are everywhere, backed by sophisticated facial recognition software. But you can defeat them, the NSA and whoever else is monitoring you. Here's how.
Connected Data announces a new SSD-based Drobo Mini that gives what pro users have been clamoring for: performance. You can now edit video with a redundant array not much larger than a DVD drive.
Making flash SSDs look like disks isn't easy. In fact, advanced high-performance SSDs use more power and run much hotter than disks. They aren't your father's thumb drive.
