In a bid to transform the world’s digital sphere, today, the South Korean tech giant Samsung has introduced a new game-changing DDR5 solution.
Samsung’s DDR5 memory solution was designed to help future-oriented companies work at their best, knowing that tech giants around the world are planning to add thousands of servers to their data centers.
For decades, Samsung has been known for transforming the landscape of the global dynamic random access memory (DRAM) market and has launched yet another generational upheaval in the IT sector with the introduction of their DDR5 solution.
Following the debut of DDR5-compatible CPUs earlier this year, the computing landscape is likely to undergo significant transformation, with growth expected to include both gaming and mainstream PCs.
The newly introduced DDR5 DRAM has twice the speed and four times the capacity of its predecessor, which debuted in 2013, at 4800 Mbps and 512GB capacity, respectively.
This next-generation high-performance memory enables networks to handle the massive volumes of data created by cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and self-driving cars.
Unlike the previous DDR4, the new DDR5 embeds a power management integrated circuit (PMIC) directly into a dual in-line memory module (DIMM), leading to a 30% increase in module power efficiency and a more reliable power supply.
Data centers are the primary users of DDR5, as they require low-power, high-performance memory to function at its full potential. They consume a lot of energy to run operations and keep servers cool.
Existing DRAMs for servers will gradually be replaced by DDR5 beginning in the third quarter of this year, a move that might help data centers remain cost-effective while also encouraging sustainable, environmentally friendly development.
Therefore, the new Samsung DDR5 will be critical in leading data-driven innovation in terms of speed, capacity, and environmental friendliness, going beyond the performance restrictions of present DRAMs.
