In 1965 George Moore, Co-Founder of Intel, made an observation that would later be named after him and set the standard for all technology manufacturers to aspire to. It also became a self fulfilling prophecy. He stated that every 12-18 months there would be a doubling of the amount of transistors per chip. He later revised this to what is now known as Moore’s Law, which is a doubling every two years. Thanks to the continuous advancement in memory technology, this increase has been possible in all sorts of microprocessor and microelectronic designs. Without volatile and non volatile memory we would still be using paper punch cards to perform basic operations and be forced to start over every time we turned our system on. Intel remains in the forefront of technology and microchip manufacturing until this very day. We all have seen this with the recent launch of the Z97 and X99 platforms… new features, new tech and new memory. DDR4 is one of the most anticipated new technologies of late 2014 and 2015. Why? Speed of course!
Crucial is well known in the industry for offering some of the best memory around. From entry level, servers, workstation, to gaming and overclocking enthusiast memory, Crucial is heralded for quality products.
