How much memory is actually embedded in the 50% networking %? 26% is for local memory on a computer. how about all the memory up stream in the routers, wireless devices, local and remote servers? assuming 25% of these devices power is memory then 25% of 50% is 12.5% SO the total is really 37.5% for memory cradle to grave? And with compounding it get slightly larger ~ 40%. So iff you convert cradle to grave and use this low power memory combo (dram or other + flash) these savings will look even better. If all devices from Google to laptop all are converted to new memory what is the total %? I_B_GREEN

Hmm..This is the "EE" Times...Electrical CONSUMPTION is in Watt-Hours, not WATTS! Or am I wrong?

You could have a point there, however given that 26% of the power budget appears to come from memory changing things to reduce power would definitely give them a competitive advantage and be worth pursuing.

It's not fluff if it's true.

Whenever you move to a new shrink, you get big improvement in memory/watt. I think this is marketing fluff showing off their 64gb dram...

This is great initiative by Samsung. I really hope all the companies will adopt measures like green memory so that we can reduce the amount of energy consumed.
