We're only just getting DDR4 on the desktop thanks to Intel's new X99 chipset, but what about the enterprise? Samsung is prepping up some delicious new RAM for enterprise users, announcing that they are mass producing the industry's first, and most-advanced 8Gb DDR4 memory, with a 32GB module.
Both of these will be manufactured based on Samsung's 20nm process, targeted at enterprise servers. Jeeho Baek, Vice President of Memory Marketing at Samsung Electronics explains "Our new 20nm 8Gb DDR4 DRAM more than meets the high performance, high density and energy efficiency needs that are driving the proliferation of next-generation enterprise servers. By expanding the production of our 20nm DRAM line-ups, we will provide premium, high-density DRAM products, while handling increasing demand from customers in the global premium enterprise market".
It gets better, because past the 32GB modules, these new 8Gb chips will allow production of server modules that will crank right up to 128GB, thanks to 3D through silicon via (TSV) technology, something that will "encourage further expansion for the high-density DRAM market".
