Samsung has developed a DDR5 chip with a density of 32 gigabits, or capable of containing 4 GB of data. The memory will greatly simplify the production of high-capacity modules and make 1TB RDIMMs. by Manolo De Agostini published on 02 September 2023, at 10:01 in the Memorie SamsungDDR5 channel Samsung has announced that it has developed the first 32 gigabit (4 GB) DDR5 memory using a process in the 12 nanometer class. The South Korean company has doubled the density from its current 16-gigabit solutions, which have been produced in volume since May. “With our 12nm 32Gb DRAM we have secured a solution that will allow DRAM modules up to 1 terabyte (TB), allowing us to be ideally positioned to meet the growing need for high capacity DRAM in the age of intelligence artificial intelligence and big data,” said SangJoon Hwang, executive vice president of DRAM Product & Technology at Samsung. In its press release, the Seoul giant claims to have improved the capacity of DRAM memories by 500,000 times compared to 1983, 40 years ago, when it introduced 64 kilobit solutions for the first time. “Previously, 128GB DDR5 modules manufactured using 16Gb DRAM required the Through Silicon Via (TSV) process. However, using 32Gb DRAM, the 128GB module can now be manufactured without using the TSV process, while reducing power consumption by approximately 10% compared to 128GB modules with 16Gb DRAM,” adds Samsung. Volume production of the new 32-gigabit DDR5 memory chips is expected by the end of this year.
