Samsung is reportedly planning to unveil a number of cutting-edge memory products at the upcoming 2024 IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference.
In addition to the previously announced GDDR7 memory featured in the high-density memory and interface session, the Korean tech giant will also unveil ultra-fast DDR5 memory chips.
The high-capacity 32Gb DDR5 DRAM is developed using 12 nanometer (nm) class process technology to deliver twice the capacity of 16Gb DDR5 DRAM within the same package size.
Reduced power consumption
Samsung hasn't provided much information about the DDR5 chips that will be announced at the conference, but DDR5 I/O speeds are up to 8000Mbps per pin, and Samsung's fifth chip will be used in a symmetric mosaic architecture. I know it's created. A generation 10nm class foundry node specifically tailored for DRAM products.
When the new DDR5 products were first announced in late 2023, SangJoon Hwang, executive vice president of DRAM products and technology at Samsung Electronics, said: “With our 12nm class 32Gb DRAM, we have secured a solution that can deliver up to 1 terabyte (TB) DRAM modules, putting us in an ideal position to meet the growing needs of large DRAM in the era of large DRAM. You can.” AI (artificial intelligence) and big data. We will continue to develop our DRAM solutions through differentiated process and design techniques, pushing the limits of memory technology. ”
Previous DDR5 128GB DRAM modules manufactured using 16Gb DRAM required a through-silicon via (TSV) process. However, Samsung says the new 32Gb DRAM will enable the production of 128GB modules without the TSV process, reducing power consumption by about 10%. This makes it a welcome solution for data centers currently grappling with increased energy demands driven by AI.
Samsung's latest DDR5 technology allows you to create 32 GB and 48 GB DIMMs at DDR5-8000 speeds in single-rank configurations, and also supports 64 GB and 96 GB DIMMs in dual-rank configurations. We will definitely learn more about the new memories once the conference begins.
