Samsung announced a new and very advance RAM memory for enterprise server market. Samsung’s 8-Gigabit DDR4 RAMs are based on 20 nanometer process technology.
Samsung already has 20nm 4Gb DDR3 for PCs and the 20nm 6Gb LPDDR3 for mobile devices. This new RAM will further strengthen Samsung’s position in the 20nm-based DRAM market.
“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,” said Jeeho Baek, Vice President of Memory Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “By expanding the production of our 20nm DRAM line-ups, we will provide premium, high-density DRAM products, while handling the increasing demand from customers in the global premium enterprise market.”
Along with the 8 Gb RAM production, Samsung already started production of 32GB registered dual in-line memory module (RDIMM) earlier this month. Samsung claims that the new module will give 29 percent performance boost over DDR3 server module.
Along with performance, DD4 RAMs will provide better error correction feature which will improve the reliability in enterprise servers. The new RAM is very energy efficient, and the module uses only 1.2 volt, which is currently the lowest possible voltage.
