According to Samsung, the new 12nm-class DDR5 DRAM will reduce power consumption by up to 23 percent while also enhancing wafer productivity by up to 20 percent. The new chips have a maximum speed of 7.2Gbps, which, according to Samsung, is enough to process two 30GB UHD movies in about a second. The new Samsung 12nm-class DDR5 DRAM lineup will support different applications including data centers, artificial intelligence, and next-generation computing.
“Using differentiated process technology, Samsung’s industry-leading 12nm-class DDR5 DRAM delivers outstanding performance and power efficiency,” said Jooyoung Lee, Executive Vice President of DRAM Product & Technology at Samsung Electronics. “Our latest DRAM reflects our continued commitment to leading the DRAM market, not only with high-performance and high-capacity products that meet computing market demand for large-scale processing but also by commercializing next-generation solutions that support greater productivity.”
Samsung noted that it has completed its 16-gigabit DDR5 DRAM evaluation for compatibility with AMD last December.
