Today Samsung announced that it has began mass-producing what it says is the most advanced DDR4 memory being made for enterprise servers in next-generation data centers. Designed run a 20nm-class process the modules facilitate demand for 16Gb and 32GB capacities.
"The adoption of ultra-high-speed DDR4 in next-generation server systems this year will initiate a push toward advanced premium memory across the enterprise," said Young-Hyun Jun, executive vice president, memory sales & marketing, Samsung Electronics. "After providing cutting-edge performance with our timely supply of 16GB DDR3 earlier this year, we are continuing to extend the premium server market in 2013 and will now focus on higher density and added performance with 32GB DDR4, and contribute to even greater
growth of the green IT market in 2014."
Samsung says that the new 4Gb-based DDR4 has the fastest DRAM data transmission rate of any other module available. At 2,667Mb/s, they represent a 1.25-fold increase in performance while lowering power consumption by more than 30-percent. Samsung remains committed to advancing the development of next-generation green memory devices and solutions in IT markets.
