Re: Good development but again a new slot

You may be right for other products but in case of old memory module, I do not think that this will be required by someone, as they will be useless in new systems. So there will not be any buyers for that. In case if they are reusable, it will be good as it will not be adding to e-waste.

And then these waste parts get remarked and sold as new devices so we can buy them again.

That's good, the new one is always the better in case of electronics, so cheer up we will be contributing a lot to the e-waste.

Do you also have a stock of DDR1 and DDR2 DIMMs?

When memory technology improves, the next generation CPUs are designed to interface to it, and the memory manufacturers shift their factories to the new memories. It is more cost effective for the factories and the CPU designers to only support one technology.

DDR4 has advantages at the high end in speed and at the low end in power consumption, so I predict we'll be seeing a lot of it next year, and less and less of DDR3 as the factories wind down its production and DDR3 ends up becoming more expensive than DDR4.

The modularity helps when you want to change the density of memory. This will be even more true with DDR4, which has multi-die devices in the spec, so DIMMs of increasing density will become available.

Good development but again a new slot
Kinnar   8/26/2014 3:24:06 PM
We this we are happy that the world is developing, but at the same time this will introduce one more different type of memory slot in the devices and new memory stripe. I am having many memory stripes with me but every time I buy a new computing device, I need to purchase a new memory stripe. I think the modularity is of no use. Memories should be soldered on the mother boards with options to increase memory with addition modules; this will prevent us storing the memory modules for future use.
