CAMM2 standard approved for up to 128GB of speedy, removable memory modules

In recent years we’ve seen a growing number of PC makers adopt LPDDR memory for thin and light laptops and mini PCs, where space is at a premium. But since that memory is fixed to the motherboard, it’s not user upgradeable. Last year Dell came up with another solution it calls CAMM (or Compression Attached […]

ULTRARAM low-power memory could offer the speed of DRAM and non-volatility of flash storage

Researchers from Lancaster University have developed a new type of computer memory product that they say combines the best features of DRAM memory and SSD storage…. and then surpasses them. Like flash storage, ULTRARAM is said to be non-volatile memory. That means it can save data indefinitely without consuming power. According to press materials, data […]

CAMM could replace SODIMM memory in next-gen laptops

Most laptops released over the past two decades have used replaceable SODIMM sticks for memory although a growing number of thin and light systems in recent years have featured non-replaceable LPDDR memory soldered to the motherboard. But last year Dell introduced a new type of removable memory called CAMM that’s capable of higher capacity and […]

Dell’s new Precision laptops feature CAMM memory modules rather than SODIMMs

In recent years laptop memory has either come in the form of a removable SODIMM stick or been soldered to the motherboard. But Dell’s new Precision 7670 and Precision 770 mobile workstation laptops take a slightly different approach. They both have user-upgradeable memory. But instead of SODIMM sticks, they use a new format called CAMM […]
