SO-DIMM laptop memory sticks to disappear as CAMM poised to take over — new RAM format comes to market, but may be a mere stopgap before tech industry moves to on-chip system memory à la Apple

The JEDEC Solid State Technology Association (JEDEC) has officially adopted a new RAM form factor much thinner than today’s industry standard, which could be set to give your next laptop a much-needed speed boost.   

With the new standard, known as CAMM2, ratified, it’s only a matter of time before the SO-DIMM sticks we’ve come to expect in the best desktops and best laptops are replaced with CAMM2 units.
