Xi'an UniIC Semiconductors, which goes by the trade name UniIC (probably pronounced "unique"), has delivered the first DDR4 memory module made 100% in China (which includes all its DRAM chips, PCB, drivers, and other components). The module may be nothing much to look at, with just a bare green PCB and DRAM chips, lacking in any heatspreaders; but this product can be considered a baby step toward a large and diverse product lineup. The debutante memory modules are unbuffered DDR4-2400 and DDR4-2667 memory modules that come in 8 GB densities.

The DDR4-2400 module is timed at CL17 17-17-39, and the DDR4-2667 at CL18, with both pulling 1.2 V - again nothing to write home about, but given the breakneck speeds at which Chinese companies flush with state investment are developing and diversifying their PC hardware lines, UniIC's product portfolio could look very different in the coming two years. UniIC is a cog in China's 3-5-2 policy of localizing PC hardware manufacturing, and eliminating dependence of foreign hardware.

Will see how it turns into commercial, or just another fund raising scam

Globalization was never real. Chinalization is.
How is that different to Americanisation?

"UniIC is a cog in China's 3-5-2 policy of localizing PC hardware manufacturing, and eliminating dependence of foreign hardware."
If only other countries had the same stance to protect their industries and absolve themselves of reliance on other nations.

Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
I like RAM with green PCB and no heatspreaders.

Do you know how much performance the massive, CPU fan-blocking, logo-adorned RGBLED heatspreaders add to your PC?

It's less than zero. Yep, they actually make it perform worse and yet some people pay for it because pretty lights are more important than their PC actually being better!

Globalization was never real. Chinalization is.
Population is the key. If all citizens in China and India where living their countries and spread all over the world, then they could have one of the top three political parties in almost every parliament of the world.

Anyway, China will probably much the world in a few years, in technology. After that we will see if all those saying that "China just copies tech" will be proven right or wrong. If Chinese companies have difficulties moving forward faster than the others, then they where probably right. If Chinese companies start overtaking other companies in technology advancements, then they where probably wrong.
