Samsung said today that it has used 12 nanometer (nm) process technology to make its 32Gb DDR5 DRAM its biggest one yet. The package size is the same but can hold twice as much as a 16 memory card.
“Samsung’s industry-leading 12nm-class DDR5 DRAM has great speed and uses very little power because it uses a different kind of process technology. Our newest DRAM shows that we are still committed to winning the DRAM market, not only with high-performance and high-capacity products that meet the demand for large-scale processing in the computing market, but also by putting next-generation solutions on the market that help people be more productive.
The executive vice president of Samsung Electronics Memory Division’s Memory Development Group, SangJoon Hwang, said that based on Samsung’s latest 12-nanometer 32Gb memory, the company could develop ways to make 1TB memory units. This will help meet the needs of artificial intelligence. In this “big data” age, there is a rising need for DRAM memory with a lot of space.
DDR5 performance features:
- DDR5 ushers in data-centric innovation
- Breathtaking speed for huge real-time data
- Twice the capacity to fuel industry innovation
- Robust reliability with a self-correcting solution
- The energy-saving choice to sustain our planet
The following to the product introduction for Samsung’s 12nm 32Gb DDR5 DRAM:
Without using the through silicon via (TSV) process, 128GB memory modules can be made with the newly made 32 GB memory particles. It uses about 10% less power than the 128GB memory module that uses 16GB memory packages. Because of this technical breakthrough, this product is the best choice for businesses that want to save energy, like data centres.
Samsung plans to keep adding to its large-capacity memory products based on 12nm-class 32Gb DDR5 DRAM to keep up with the growth of the high-performance computing and IT businesses. Samsung plans to stay at the top of the next-generation memory market by offering 32Gb memory in the 12nm class to data centres and customers who use applications like artificial intelligence and next-generation computing. In the future, this product will also be a key part of Samsung’s long-term work with other key industry partners.
At the end of this year, full production of the new 12nm-class 32Gb DDR5 DRAM is set to begin. Visit to learn more about Samsung’s DRAM products, Samsung Semiconductor.
Which is the better DRAM, DDR4 or DDR5?
DDR5 RAM has a higher base speed, allows larger DIMM modules (also called RAM sticks), and uses less power than DDR4 for the same performance. Currently, the standard clock speed for DDR4 is 2133MHz, while the standard clock speed for DDR5 is 4800MHz. If you want to run RAM faster than these speeds, you may have to turn on the XMP profile in your PC’s BIOS if it’s not already on, but DDR4 can’t hit the high speeds that DDR5 can.
Can I use DDR5 RAM on a DDR4 motherboard?
Motherboards can only handle DDR3, DDR4, or DDR5 memory technology. So, your processor must have a DDR5 RAM slot if you want to use DDR5 RAM. So, we can say that DDR5 RAM and systems with DDR4 slots don’t work together. There are many reasons why they don’t work together.
