Samsung Electronics this week announced the mass production of the industry's first 64MB DDR4 RDIMMs, which are based on DRAM density of 16 Gbit (2 GB). New products are designed for servers.
Each module includes 32 16 Gb DDR4 DRAM chips located 16 on each side.
New memory modules provide an increase compared to 8 Gbit (up to 2666 Mt / c) and a 19% reduction in power consumption (compared to two 32GB modules).
The first serial product that received new Samsung modules was the HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 server, built on the AMD EPYC 7000 series processors. This dual-processor model supports installation of 32 memory modules allows I get a total of 2 TB of RAM. Another server where these modules can be found will be a single-processor model HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10, where the maximum amount of RAM is 1 TB.
By the end of this year, Samsung plans to begin assembling 256 GB modules on the same 16 Gbit chips that will allow to bring the maximum amount of RAM in servers 2P to an impressive 8 TB!
