Thaiphoon Burner Super Blaster 18.104.22.168 has been released. has been released. Comparing to previous version 22.214.171.124 the new one brings some improvements as to providing technical information on DRAM modules. So, the program determines and displays the number of PCB layers for DDR3 and DDR4 modules of all types (UDIMM, RDIMM, SO-DIMM, LRDIMM) in accordance with JEDEC specifications for Raw Cards. It also displays the number of used DRAM components of the memory module. Process Technology is displayed mainly for DDR3 and DDR4 components manufactured by SK hynix, Micron Technology and Samsung. The program is capable of determining Samsung components on Crucial Technology Ballistix DDR4 series. The SMBus controllers of Kaby Lake and Braswell code-named processors (Intel Pentium & Celeron N3000 series) have been supported. When importing timings form the XMP profile the Timing Table Editor sets default VDD to 1.35V if it is specific for the profile. The second part of 512 Kbit SPD EEPROM array is now accessible on the AMD DDR4-based platforms. The “Fast Read and Write” option is enabled for Intel LGA2011 processors too. When it is unchecked it helps to read the SPD content on the 6th generation Intel LGA2011 processors without errors.

Thaiphoon Burner Super Blaster 10.0.0.0 has been released. Below is the list of new features. Also, you can check out the list on russian here.
- SPD CRC and the time spent reading entire SPD array are displayed on the status bar of the main window;
- The new “Open if found” checkbox has been placed on the “Quick Search Panel” to open the first found SPD dump in the currently selected database file;
- Support for the second SMBus controller of the Intel “Ivy Bridge-EP” (LGA2011 v2) and Core i7 “Broadwell-E” (6800 and 6900 series) processors has been added. This enables accessing up to eight SPD EEPROM on the second DIMM branch;
- The “SPDWD Patch Assistant” toolbox formerly known as “BIOS SMBus Patch Assistant” and previously distributed as a standalone application is now integrated into Thaiphoon Burner. This tool is designed to search for the “SPD Write Disable Bit” signatures within BIOS files;
- It’s now possible to dump all the SPD EEPROM devices through /xs and /xb command line parameters. The first parameter lets you save SPD array in text format and the second one – in binary format. Both the parameters can be used simultaneously and be adjusted through the “Settings” dialog box. The Demo version allows savings the first 143 SPD bytes only;
- Two previously missing Device IDs of the Intel ICH10 series LPC controller have been added to the SMBus unhide routine what makes SPD access possible;
- Part number identification of SK hynix DDR4 DRAM components being used on the G.Skill Trident Z RGB series modules has been added;
- To calculate capacity of memory modules the new procedure has been written. The previous code was inconsistent for 128 GB memory modules equipped with 4H 3DS DRAM components;
- DIMM capacity is measured and displayed in gigabytes (GB) if it exceeds 512 MB;
- SPD Browser is now capable of searching for SPD dumps of memory modules with 128 GB capacity;
- VrefDQ voltage levels are correctly interpreted for LRDIMM with SPD revision 1.2;
- Lithography Resolution (Process node) for Samsung, Micron and SK hynix DDR4 DRAM components has been corrected in accordance with the NDA roadmaps. Besides, this parameter is also displayed for Nanya, Samsung and SK hynix DDR3, DDR2 and DDR SDRAM parts;
- DRAM Die Revision is displayed in the “Die Density / Count” section of the Summary report if Samsung, SK hynix, Micron or Nanya DRAM components have been determined. If the Die Revision is not provided by SPD specification or it was not programmed by memory module manufacturer, the program can obtain it from the DRAM part number;
- The newest Micron 16nm H-die and E-die (Z11C/Z11B) DDR4 components are identified. Abbreviated and full marks are displayed for the following Micron DDR4 components: D9VHP, D9VHQ, D9VPP, D9VRW, D9VXL, D9VXN, D9TBK, D9TNZ, D9VHS, D9VJP, D9VRX, D9VWZ, D9VXM, D9VXP, D9WCN, D9SXX, D9TRJ, D9TCH, D9VGW, D9VNK, D9VXH, D9VXG, D9VQL, D9VNM, D9VWL;
- The Micron Technology manufacturing location identifiers list has been revised and enhanced to comply with the official list;
- Micron Technology Design ID is also displayed for DDR3 and DDR2 components;
- Some of previously unknown DDR4 Register and Data Buffer models are identified.

Thaiphoon Burner Super Blaster 126.96.36.199 has been released. Below is the list of new features.
- After taking a screenshot the user is suggested to upload it to RGho.st free image hosting for future use on forums. The program automatically retrieves received hyperlinks and BB-code from RGho.st web server response and displays them to user.
- When SPD EEPROM reading is complete the program scans its SPD database for SPD availability by the Part Number of the DRAM module. If the required Part Number is not found, the user is asked permission to upload their SPD to the temporary repository at RGho.st for being added to the SPD database.
- The XMP Enhancer Professional for DDR4 SPD has been internally updated to version 3.0. Now it is fully integrated with the SPD database providing the user with a simple and quick way of integrating XMP 2.0 profiles of original memory modules. The XMP Enhancer scans the SPD database to prepare a list of found XMP 2.0 profiles and sorts them by frequency.
- The SPD Comparator has the integration with the SPD database too. You can compare your SPD data with the reference SPD from the database. For this purpose a combobox has been added to list all relevant SPDs sorted by module’s part number. SPD CRC is displayed for each of two Comparator’s panels.
- A new “DRAM” column has been added to the SPD Browser report structure. This column displays DRAM manufacturer if it has been programmed by memory module manufacturer.
- Two new “Dark Frog” and “Meadow Mouse” color schemes have been added.
- The ProMOS Technology identifier has been added to the DRAM Manufacturers list of the “Product Details” editor.
- Fixed a bug in the SPD Backup Manager that prevented the backup database from accessing after cancelling the issued context menu command to clear the backup database.
- SMBus Controller unlocking tricks now work on the Intel X79 and X99 chipsets.
- Added support for the second dedicated SMBus Controller of the Intel Xeon E5 v2 and Intel Core-i7 3000 series processors.
- The new version has been tested on 27 new SPD dumps from Corsair DDR4 memory modules for DRAM identification purposes.
