Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in advanced semiconductor technology solutions, today announced its fourth generation green memory solution at the annual Memory Solution CIO Forum at the Shilla hotel, Seoul, Korea. Designed to achieve superior system level performances, the new solution introduces a combination of its advanced 20 nanometer (nm) class DDR3 and 20 nm-class SSDs based on high-performance SATA 6.0 Gb/s and SAS interfaces respectively.
The new green memory solution addresses the benefits of green memory for next-generation enterprise servers, server storage solutions and personal computing solutions, broadening the benefits of green memory solutions even further throughout the IT industry. The reduced costs and optimized IT expenditure efficiencies are well in-line with the creating shared value (CSV) framework.
In his keynote, Wanhoon Hong, executive vice president of Memory sales and marketing, Device Solutions, Samsung Electronics, noted, "With the introduction of Samsung's advanced green memory solutions, the shared value created through the technology advances are adopted to PC platforms enhancing consumer experience and thus contributing to the expansion of an eco-friendly IT industry."
He added that, "Samsung will continue to proactively respond to diverse consumer needs with the timely development of differentiated next-generation green memory devices and solutions, and thus reinforce market leadership that adds to the evolving market of advanced premium memory solutions."
The performance benefits were achieved by incorporating Samsung's advanced 20 nm-class DDR3 technology and its powerful SSD solutions; the SATA 6.0 Gb/s interface SM843 for server systems and the SAS interface SM1625 for enterprise storage.
In comparison with a datacenter utilizing 40 nm-class DRAM and HDD, the overall performance rises six-fold while power consumption decreases by 20 percent on server systems and 60 percent on storage systems.
Also, should all current systems including servers, storage and notebooks, adopt 10 percent of SSDs and 20 percent of DDR3, in 2013 alone, an anticipated power savings of 3.5 terawatt per hour could be achieved. This translates into a 2.41-million ton savings of greenhouse gases, which is equivalent to planting 60 million 10-year-old trees.
Following the announcement of its 20 nm-class 2 Gb DDR3 DRAM in September, 2011, the company initiated production of its 20 nm-class 4 Gb DDR3 last month, more than tripling its productivity compared to 40 nm-class DDR3 on notebook PCs, and also marking a major turning point from the conventional 40 nm-class and 30 nm-class DRAM used in personal computers.
By replacing notebooks using 40 nm-class 4 GB DDR3 and HDDs with Samsung's advanced 20 nm-class 4 GB DDR3 module paired with its latest 250-Gigabyte SSDs, the performance is comparable with newly launched notebooks and battery life is extended by approximately one hour, greatly raising user convenience and mobility.
Highlighting the Samsung Memory Solution CIO Forum, industry leaders including Kang-tae Lee, chairman of Federation of Korean Information Industries CIO Forum, Sang Kyun Cha, professor at Seoul National University and research director of SAP Korea, Jung Il Kim, manager of Semiconductor Display part at Ministry of Knowledge Economy, and Kyo Joong Jung, vice president of EMC Korea, shared insights on raising green IT efficiencies and introduced case studies on eco-friendly innovation. Latest IT technologies and trends were discussed among the 300-and-plus attendees consisting of corporate CIOs and IT industry specialists.
Samsung will continue to pursue evolutionary developments through its next-generation green memory strategy, which is synchronized with the concept of CSV through "3S Innovation: system, solution, software." The evolutionary developments of green memory solutions involve next-generation process technology, ultra high-speed memory interface technology, high reliability circuit design and intelligent package technology.
