Samsung has just reached a new milestone in its DRAM business with word that it has begun sampling DDR3 modules with a massive 32GB on board; the highest density RDIMMs in existance at this time.
This is accomplished by using 36 dual-die 40nm 4GB DRAMs. The modules are said to operate at 1066MHz with 1.35V. The modules will allow two-way servers to be equipped with as much as 384GB of RAM and four-way servers would have the ability to harness a maximum of 2TB!
"Samsung continues to set the pace in advanced memory for high-end server applications by offering 40nm-class 32GB memory modules to reach previously unattainable levels of system capacity," said Soo-In Cho, president and general manager of Samsung Electronics' Memory Division. "In just 10 months, Samsung has now secured the best competitive advantage with the broadest portfolio of 40nm-class DDR3 based memory solutions in the industry since the 40nm-class DRAM was first produced last July."
Samsung has stated its 32GB RDIMMs will go into mass production sometime next month.
