  1. Samsung develops 512GB DDR5 memory for advanced computing Samsung's first DDR5 memory offers data transfer rate of up to 7,200Mbps and is aimed at advanced computing applications. Samsung Electronics on Thursday said it has developed a 512GB DDR5 memory module. It is the company's first DRAM made with the latest DDR5 standard that was set by JEDEC in July last year. The hardware, made with high-k metal gate (HKMG) process technology, offers up to 7,200Mbps in data transfer rate, over double that of conventional DDR4, Samsung said. The company stacked eight layers of 16Gb DRAM chips for the module, it said. The memory will be able to handle high-bandwidth workloads in applications such as supercomputing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics, the company added. According to the South Korean tech giant, using HKMG technology for the insulation layer, instead of the traditional silicon oxynitride, will allow the latest hardware to have less current leakage compared to other memory. It will also allow the new memory to use around 13% less power than its predecessors, making it especially attractive for data centres, the company said. The South Korean tech giant began applying HKMG technology to its memory products back in 2018. Starting last year, it also began applying extreme ultraviolet process to its DRAM production. "Samsung is the only semiconductor company with logic and memory capabilities and the expertise to incorporate HKMG cutting-edge logic technology into memory product development," Sohn Young-soo, vice president of DRAM memory planning at Samsung, said in a statement. Besides the 512GB module, Samsung is currently sampling different variations of its DDR5 memory product family to customers for verification and certification, the company added. "As the amount of data to be moved, stored and processed increases exponentially, the transition to DDR5 comes at a critical inflection point for cloud data centres, networks and edge deployments," said Carolyn Duran, Intel vice president of memory and IO technology added. "Intel's engineering teams closely partner with memory leaders like Samsung to deliver fast, power-efficient DDR5 memory that is performance-optimised and compatible with our upcoming Intel Xeon Scalable processors, code named Sapphire Rapids." Samsung compatriot SK Hynix introduced its first DDR5 DRAM in October last year. Source: Samsung develops 512GB DDR5 memory for advanced computing
  2. Samsung unveils CXL-based DDR5, an industry-first innovation Samsung has arguablyturned its memory technology innovation all the way up to 11 recently. Earlier this year, the company announced the revolutionary AI-based HBM-PIM memory and today, it has announced the industry's first DDR5 memory solution to run on the Compute Express Link (CXL) interface. The South Korean giant says that the next-gen DDR standard will enable the movement of enormous amounts of data due to the massive capacities that it will offer. Of course, these high-capacity memory modules aren't built for home usage, at least not for the foreseeable future, and are instead designed for high-performance computing needs like AI, big data, and more. As such, moving to the CXL standard will be helpful for IT industries. High-performance computing has been gradually trending towards heterogeneity where the host and the co-processors have to work together efficiently and a coherent interconnect standard is essential. Compute Express Link (CXL) provides this capability, as it is an open-standard interconnect based on PCIe 5.0 and is cache-coherent, making it ideal for next-gen high-performance heterogeneous computing. Alongside designing the hardware, Samsung adds that it has made several changes to the memory controller as well as the software, which includes memory mapping, interface converting, and error management. The new CXL-based DDR5 has been validated on Intel's next-gen server platform, likely the upcoming Sapphire Rapids platform which is meant to succeed the current Ice Lake SP Xeon lineup.

  3. Memory maker teases DDR5-10000 RAM and we're practically salivating at the thought Chinese memory manufacturer fires the starting pistol in the race to 10,000MT/s DDR5. (Image credit: Micron) Even the basic DDR5 specification is faster than all but the best DDR4 kits, at around 4,800MHz, but that may not be anywhere close to its full potential. Netac, a Chinese memory manufacturer, is aiming much, much higher with its experimental 'ultra high frequency' kits. How does a DDR5-10000 kit sound to you? Netac is aiming for a 10,000MHz (effective) memory kit with DDR5 memory (via ITHome, El Chapuzas Informatico), although it's got a long way to go yet. The company says it just received its first batch of DDR5 DRAM from Micron, a batch of MT60B2G8HB-48B ES:A RAM. That part number appears to correspond to DRAM DDR5 16Gb kits. Micron's DDR5 DRAM is officially rated between 3200–6400MT/s, between 1.1 and 1.8V, and is available with up to 64Gb per chip. That's potentially a whole lot of memory per DIMM. Samsung has managed to stuff 512GB of DDR5 DRAM onto a single stick of RAM. That's SSD-sized system memory—makes even 32GB of DDR4 look paltry by comparison. Netac will need to push Micron's quite a distance to tip it over 10,000 MT/s (10,000MHz effective), which will likely necessitate some very loose timings and high voltages to achieve. It's certainly not impossible, however. DDR4 is able to reach speeds more than double its 'stock' speed nowadays. Memory kit manufacturers will all be looking to push DDR5 memory to the limit with every new memory kit, and I suspect the race will be on to hit a DDR5-10000 kit just for the acclaim. Memory manufacturers—namely Micron, Samsung, and SK Hynix—will also want to be the chip of choice for high-performance RAM kits, such as Samsung's infamous B-die DDR4, and will undoubtedly offer more performant chips as time goes on. For gaming workloads, you'll want tighter timings and a solid relationship between memory speed and memory controller, which is found on your CPU. None of today's chips from AMD or Intel will be suitable, either. AMD's first DDR5 compatible chip will arrive with the Zen 4 architecture, expected to arrive in 2022, and Intel has confirmed both DDR5 and DDR4 memory support will come onboard its Intel Alder Lake processors later this year.
