The Flash Memory Summit wound down on Thursday after a four day run at the Santa Clara Convention Center in San Jose. The show floor was fairly crowded with over 5,000 attendees and a sold out exhibition space.
The FCC has published a very interesting report. The report which is called Measuring Broadband America is a survey of broadband companies in the US that spanned several months. The purpose is to gauge how well these companies are meeting the speeds their customers are paying for. Overall the industry has done quite well with most true broadband providers meeting or exceeding their advertised speeds even at peak hours. There is one company that, well let’s just say is not doing what it should be. The fact that they have been in the news about this lately only makes the information more damning.
This series of SSDs represents Intel's answer to Samsung and OCZ (Toshiba) and their EVO 840 and Vector model. Intel claims that both drives come with significantly improved speed controller (up to 50%) and NAND bus which achieves 20% higher speed.
IBM's Research Laboratory achieved a great progress in the development of graphene microchip. Their engineers have managed to create an integrated chip of graphene instead of silicon, which shows several times better performance than all previous graphene chips. This big jump occurred because of the discovery of methods of depositing graphene on a substrate, which is stacked in a way that integrated circuits are not damaged, which was not possible until now.
Mobile Internet access in Korea becomes even faster. The local mobile operator SK Telecom has announced up to 300 Mbps via 3band LTE-Advanced. For comparison, conventional LTE offers a theoretical approach speed of 75 megabits, while LTE Advanced offers 150 megabits per second.

Kingston Technology’s HyperX Memory Breaks TWO World Records!
· 2902 (CL6) and 3082 (CL7) MHz achieved with Kingston HyperX Memory
Detailed information about the session is available online:
· Record validation 2902MHz (CL6)
· Record validation 3082MHz (CL7)
Fountain Valley, CA -- July 29, 2011-- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced that its fastest dual-channel memory kit, HyperX® 2544MHz (Kingston® part #: KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX), was clocked at 2902MHz with CL6 and 3082 MHz with CL7 timings, during a heavy home overclocking session in France.
These are the fastest ever recorded frequencies for memory with CL6 and CL7 latencies. They were achieved by the renowned overclockers Benjamin Bouix aka ‘Benji Tshi’ and
Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘Marmott’ using liquid nitrogen as a cooling aid. The sessions were run on a GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD6C (bios F10) motherboard with an Intel® Core i7™ 870 processor.
“This is the first time we have overclocked this module and the speeds achieved are very impressive,” said French overclocking champion Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘Marmott’. “HyperX KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX has the potential to go even faster but unfortunately we were restricted by CPU performance so we can’t wait until the next OC session to beat our own records!”
