Samsung Electronics announced that it has developed a prototype fusion memory, named OneDRAM, that it claims significantly increases the data processing speed between processors in mobile applications. The company said it expects to introduce the product in handsets by the second half of 2007.
OneDRAM is expected to be specified in the design of handsets, game consoles and in other digital applications, especially those that use 3-dimensional (3D) graphics, the company highlighted.

The 512Mbit 133MHz device incorporates a dual-port approach to sharply decrease data processing time between processors, Samsung said. Due to rapidly increasing demand for multimedia features in mobile applications, designers have been specifying the use of two separate processors - a communication processor and a media processor. The new OneDRAM will channel data between the processors through a single chip eliminating the need to also specify DRAM and SRAM chips for buffer memory. Data managed by the processors is housed in a shared bank where the space for storing data can be adjusted accordingly. This meets the JEDEC low power double-data-rate (LPDDR) memory standard.

Samsung also noted that OneDRAM reduces power consumption by 30%, lessens the number of chips needed and minimizes area coverage by 50%, resulting in a five-fold increase in the speed of handsets and gaming console operations, longer battery life and slimmer handset designs.

A single OneDRAM chip can replace, at least, two mobile memory chips in high-end smart phones and other multimedia-rich handsets. In addition, by adjusting the hardware in the chipset, OneDRAM can cost-effectively reduce system circuitry, while maximizing overall operational efficiency, the company said.

Windows won't find the drivers...cause you need to download them. Read the guide...it's all in the guide

XP SP2 does have native driver support for SB Live 5.1. Not sure why its not finding them?

Do you only get the stutter in games or other audio? Have you tried the Directsound and Directmusic tests in dxdiag? A Directdraw override might be worth a shot.

:cool:

Hell i dont even use SP2 and i have support for the Live cards. Ive never had to install the Creative crap if i didnt want to. But here again like i said as well, if it dosent work then just pop in the cd and tell stupid Windows where the drivers are. Sometimes it wants to be stubborn. This is why i ditched the card TBH. Got tired of all the hassle. Man im cranky, need sleep.

I think the chip is pretty good! :)
I has 100 times better sound then my onboard so I used it.

Windows has never found the drivers on its own. It can find the gameport drivers and never the actual sound.
And using windows to get the drivers off the CD is basically the same as using the installer.. :eek:

Not exactly becasue the installed installs the CTHELPER.EXE, Audio crap and the default settings and everything else.You tell Windows to look on the CD and its just installing a .DLL for that particular piece of Hardware, not installing any other software.

I got rid of all that "crap"....
Easily done.. I am no noob when it comes to getting the most out of Windows..

Still giving you problems?

Disabling audio altogether got rid of the stuttering for me, but the framerates still aren't what they could be. Tommorow ill be installing a new motherboard and 2 gigs of dd2 so we'll see how that helps.

Yeah all the Live cards I`ve installed also had WDM drivers from windows installed on them automatically, then I went over them.
