Samsung now mass produces 20nm-based DDR4 RAM for servers

Samsung DDR4 RAM

Samsung today confirmed the mass production of its “most advanced” DDR4 RAM. Samsung says the RAM is meant for use in enterprise servers in next-generation data centers due to the high-performance and high-density DDR4 modules offer.

Based on 20nm process technology, Samsung uses 4Gb (gigabit) DDR4 chip to offer 16GB and 32GB RAM modules. The 4Gb-based DDR4 reduces power consumption by more than 30 percent and boasts the fastest DRAM data transmission rate of 2,667 megabits per second (Mb/s), a 1.25-fold increase over 20nm-class DDR3.

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. 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.
