Apple isn't generally forthcoming about specifications of new iOS hardware beyond storage capacity and processor used. A day after the release of the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and iPhone SE, enthusiasts have run tests on the gear and have discovered that both new pieces of gear have 2GB of RAM -- a positive discovery for the iPhone SE, and a less well regarded amount installed in the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, given the 4GB in the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
If you've owned a MacBook of any description for any amount of time, then you've seen that the maximum battery life drops. The great hours upon hours of work you used to be able to get out of that machine drops, and actually you're never going to stop that happening -- but maybe you can slow it down a little. Coolant 2.0 for OS X is a menubar app that gives you some tools to see what's going on, and specifically to tell you when you need to take some action.
The 5K Retina 27-inch iMacs updated yesterday can now support higher quantities of RAM than Apple currently supplies, it has been revealed. The refreshed high-resolution Macs now include four memory slots, allowing it to use up to 64GB of RAM by filling the iMac up with four 16GB RAM modules, double what the previous models were able to accept, and also twice as much as Apple itself offers via its online store when performed as an aftermarket upgrade.
One problem with having ever written about technology is that when you come to buy your own computer, you want the latest and the very greatest -- even if you really do not need it. However, the good side of the same issue is that when you do spend all that cash, you get a machine that lasts you a very, very long time. At least, it does if you buy a Mac.
Samsung is paving the way for smartphones to have higher capacities of RAM, by starting the mass production of 8-gigabit low-power DDR4 (LPDDR4) mobile DRAM. Originally hinted at by the manufacturer this time last year, the new mobile DRAM production is being used for the creation of mobile DRAM modules of up to 4GB in capacity.
Server farm and hosting provider Macminicolo has posted its preliminary findings on the latest edition of the Mac mini, noting that the RAM in the unit is not user-accessible as was the case in previous models. This does not completely preclude the possibility of it being upgraded, but doing so would void the warranty on the machine. The 5400rpm hard drive included in the 2014 models is upgradeable, but again only through a warranty-voiding procedure.
Adata, a company known for solid state drives and computer memory, announced today that it is releasing a series of DDR4 memory aimed at the overclocking enthusiast market. The new memory will support the latest versions of the Intel Haswell-E processors, as well as see a reduction in voltage to allow overclockers to get the most out of their money.
A sign spotted by a Mac user at the new Paradise Walk Apple Store in Chongqing , China may have leaked the changes coming to the next lineup of 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro, with the most dramatic being the bump up to 16GB of RAM as standard on all models, even the low-end unit. Assuming the sign is correct, all three models of Retina MacBook Pro will bump around 200MHz in speed, with the line jumping to 2.2GHz, 2.5GHz and 2.8GHz, respectively. It is assumed that the RAM in the Retina models remains non-upgradeable.
An additional eight car brands have confirmed plans for vehicles supporting Apple's CarPlay platform. These include Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Mazda, and Ram. So far, though, the parties haven't said when their first CarPlay-ready vehicles will arrive, or which models will have support.
Samsung has revealed its first 8 gigabit (1GB) low-power DDR4 (LPDDR4) mobile DRAM, something Samsung believes to be the largest density available for DRAM components today. Built using a 20-nanometer process, the single-layer chip could lead to the company offering smartphones and mobile devices with 4GB of RAM in the future, eclipsing current models such as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 2014 which currently use 3GB of RAM.
