This new 8Gb chip will allow the company to provide cost-effective, high-capacity solutions for servers, and more. Robert Feurle, Vice President of Compute and Networking Marketing at Micron said: "The ability to scale with our customers' accelerating memory demand was a key driver in developing this 8Gb DDR3 design. We are committed to working together with our partners to minimize risk, maximize flexibility and optimize total cost of ownership".

 

Micron bakes these 8Gb chips onto RAM using a 25nm process, with the first commercial products to come out of the oven being 32GB DDR3 DIMMs for servers.
