Samsung launches mass production for 16Gb DDR5 DRAM

Samsung Electronics has announced the commencement of mass production for its 16-gigabit (Gb) DDR5 DRAM, utilizing an advanced 12 nanometer (nm)-class process technology.

This achievement reinforces Samsung’s position as a frontrunner in cutting-edge DRAM technology. Executive Vice President of DRAM Product & Technology at Samsung Electronics, Jooyoung Lee, emphasized the outstanding performance and power efficiency of Samsung’s industry-leading 12nm-class DDR5 DRAM, made possible by its differentiated process technology.

The latest DRAM offering demonstrates Samsung’s ongoing commitment to dominate the DRAM market by delivering high-performance, high-capacity products that cater to the demand for large-scale processing. Furthermore, Samsung is focused on commercializing next-generation solutions that drive increased productivity.

Compared to the previous generation, Samsung’s new 12nm-class DDR5 DRAM significantly reduces power consumption by up to 23% and enhances wafer productivity by up to 20%. Its exceptional power efficiency positions it as an ideal solution for global IT companies aiming to decrease energy consumption and minimize the carbon footprint of their servers and data centers.

Samsung’s successful development of 12nm-class process technology relied on the utilization of a new high-κ material, which enhances cell capacitance. This increase in capacitance leads to a substantial electric potential difference in the data signals, facilitating accurate distinction.

Moreover, Samsung’s efforts to reduce operating voltage and noise have contributed to the creation of an optimal solution that meets customers’ requirements.

With a maximum speed of 7.2 gigabits per second (Gbps), Samsung’s 12nm-class DDR5 DRAM lineup offers impressive processing capabilities, enabling the handling of two 30GB UHD movies in just one second. This makes it suitable for various applications, including data centers, artificial intelligence, and next-generation computing.

In December of last year, Samsung completed the evaluation of its 16-gigabit DDR5 DRAM for compatibility with AMD, and it continues to collaborate with global IT companies to foster innovation in the next-generation DRAM market.
