Samsung’s New DDR5 RAM Chips Could Give Single-Stick Capacities of Up to 768GB

DDR5 RAM will find its way into gaming PC builds later this year when Intel Alder Lake arrives, although most people will be sticking with similar capacities to the current sets of best gaming RAM. We heard earlier this year that Samsung was working on a mammoth 512GB DDR5 stick, but it looks like even larger capacities could be on the way, after it announced that it’s developing a new 24GB module that’ll be able to fit up to 768GB onto a single stick (via Tom’s Hardware)…

A Magnetic Helmet Shrunk a Deadly Tumor in World-First Test

We’ve seen helmets and AI that can spot brain tumors, but a new hard hat can actually treat them, too. As part of the latest neurological breakthrough, researchers used a helmet that generates a magnetic field to shrink a deadly tumor by a third. The 53-year-old patient who underwent the treatment ultimately passed away due to an unrelated injury. But, an autopsy of his brain showed that the procedure had removed 31 percent of the tumor mass in a short time. The test marked the first noninvasive therapy for a deadly form of brain cancer known as glioblastoma…

Ever since humanity has grasped the idea of a robot, we’ve wanted to imagine them into walking humanoid form. But making a robot walk like a human is not an easy task, and even the best of them end up with the somewhat shuffling gait of a Honda Asimo rather than the graceful poise of a balerina.
