Thaiphoon Burner Super Blaster 220.127.116.11 has been released. A list of then new features is below.
- Part Number of SpecTek DRAM components is displayed and build in accordance with Micron’s Part Numbering;
- Part Number of Hynix DDR2 components is displayed and built in accordance with legacy and new Hynix rules;
- Attached DDR3 DRAM part numbering system of Elpida Memory to build DRAM part numbers;
- Attached the latest part numbering system of Nanya Technology for DDR4 8Gb A-die components;
- Added building part numbers for Qimonda DDR2 DRAM components;
- A simple process manager has been developed to prevent SPD data from corruption and inconsistency while reading EEPROM. Before reading SPD EEPROM content the program enumerates all running processes to find ones related to temperature and RGB LED control software, e.g. ASUS Aura Sync based applications. When found, the list of all unsafe processes is displayed. The user can terminate them or ignore the warning;
- Module Series is displayed in the summary and full reports for G.SKILL, Corsair, GoodRAM, AMD and Crucial DRAM modules;
- A huge improvement in building part numbers and die identification of DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 DRAM components has been made. If this data is not found in SPD bytes the alternative function is called for analyzing the part number of memory modules to determine the manufacturer and die generation of used DRAM components. This functions works perfectly for memory modules manufactured by Apacer, ASint, Crucial, Ramaxel, RAmos, Kingmax, Swissbit, Smart Modular and others;
- The SPD Browser can fetch SPD dumps from SPD database by DRAM Manufacturer criteria. Besides, after updating the SPD database file the user can browse the recently added SPD dumps immediately or by executing “NEW” search query lately;
- The Comparator tool provides reading SPD EEPROM content to the right HEX panel which is defined for reference purposes. This improvement lets the user compare SPDs of their modules quick and easy;
- Used a PageControl component to switch between the three modes of Welcome Screen, Full Summary/Report and HEX. Such an interface design concept makes UI more responsive and takes less time to redraw the interface itself;
- SPD reading/writing is performed two times faster for 4-Kbit DDR4 EEPROM devices;
- The new efficient programming algorithm for Intel SMBus Host Controllers enables to read SPD EEPROM data 14 times faster. Now it takes about 500 milliseconds to complete reading of 512 SPD bytes.
