Laptops are one of the major ways that people work, especially in the way it allows people to do so from the comfort of their own home. Thanks to the device’s portable nature, laptops offer people the ability to sit comfortably and not have to work at a desk with a traditional computer or take the laptop with them. Of course, this is only possible because laptops are smaller and lighter than desktop PCs, with less weight always being a good thing for a device that is intended to travel. The 2024 calendar year could well see laptops not only continue to shrink in girth, but also run faster than ever before.
This is all thanks to a new type of memory being created by Dell. Most laptops utilize SO-DIMM for memory, yet Dell has now developed the Compression Attached Memory Module (CAMM) as an alternative. By receiving approval from the trade standards body JEDEC, CAMM looks to become more widespread over the coming year, which could be a very good thing for consumers.
With SO-DIMM memory likely to reach a ceiling in terms of speed, CAMM can offer far higher speeds due to its design changes. Meanwhile, CAMM memory also takes up less space and could allow for more compact laptops that are not as thick as the system doesn’t need to be stacked to work. There are some CAMM laptops available now, but the technology will likely be used much more in 2024.
