Samsung Electronics is accelerating production ramp up of DDR4 memory, the company announced on Tuesday, anticipating strong market demand for these modules, and the upcoming arrival of the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 product family.  

"Samsung's DDR4 memory provides significant benefits to server manufacturers including lower power consumption, reliability and improved system performance with current speeds up to 2400 megabits per second (Mbps)," states the company's press release.

The company explained that it is now ramping production of its entire family of 4 Gb-based DDR4 modules, including DDR4 RDIMMs, LRDIMMs, and ECC SODIMMs, as well as x4, x8 and x16 DDR4 chips. Samsung also plans to transition to 8 Gb 32GB DDR4 modules for the high density server market later this year.

Jim Elliott, corporate vice president, Memory Marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc, said that the company plans to contribute to creating a bigger market for DRAM in the second half of 2014. "We will continue to introduce high-density DDR4 modules for global OEMs that will facilitate the launch of next-generation enterprise servers and will maximize IT investment efficiency," Elliott said.

Geof Findley, director, PMO Memory Enabling & Applications Engineering, Intel Corporation, said that Samsung's new 20nm process technology will play a major role in driving DDR4 adoption in conjunction with the launch of the future Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 product family.

"The integration of Samsung DDR4 memory as part of future Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3-based systems will drive higher performance and lower power consumption in the enterprise and data center markets," Findley said.

Samsung DDR4 LRDIMMs, RDIMMs, and ECC SODIMMs are available globally in densities from 8 GB to 64 GB at speeds of 2133 to 2400 Mbps.
