Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has started mass production of what it boasts as the most advanced DDR4 memory for enterprise servers in next-generation data centres. According to the company, with the roll out of the high-performance, high-density DDR4 modules, it can better support the need for advanced DDR4 in rapidly expanding, large-scale data centres and other enterprise server applications.

Early market availability of the 4Gb DDR4 devices, which use 20nm-class process technology, will facilitate demand for 16GB and 32GB memory modules. This compares to conventional DRAM of which 8GB modules using a 30nm-class process technology are still commonplace.

Production of Samsung's 20nm-class 4Gb DDR4 follows the introduction of 50nm-class 2Gb DDR3 in 2008, culminating in a full-fledged transition to DDR4 for large-scale data centres and other enterprise applications in just five years. The 4Gb-based DDR4 has the fastest DRAM data transmission rate of 2,667Mb/s, a 1.25-fold increase over 20nm-class DDR3, while lowering power consumption by more than 30 per cent, stated the company.

Based on Samsung's 20nm-class DRAM, described by the firm as the world's highest performing and smallest 4Gb DRAM chip, the company said it has now developed the industry's largest line-up of products tailored to applications from servers to mobile devices. This will provide global customers with a range of highly advanced low-power, high-performance green memory solutions.
