Samsung to begin mass production of the 12nm DDR5 DRAM chipsets
The 16Gb DDR5 DRAM chips employing the 12nm technology have begun to be mass produced by Samsung, the industry leader in DRAM semiconductor memory chips. The new 12nm DRAM chips are more energy-efficient than the chips from the previous generation.
The new 12nm DDR5 DRAM chips from the South Korean company improve wafer productivity by 20% while using 23% less power. Customers can experience greater power savings and smaller carbon footprints when using these chips for their cloud servers and high-performance computing, especially for data centres. According to Samsung, their High-material, which raises cell capacitance and causes a considerable electric potential difference in the data signals, enabled the company’s new 12nm-class DDR5 DRAM production.
The 7.2Gbps data transfer rates of Samsung’s latest 12nm DDR5 DRAM chips are enough to process two 30GB 4K movies in a second. In December 2022, these new processors were already being considered for AMD CPUs. To promote innovation in the DRAM industry, the corporation will keep working with additional international IT firms.
Jooyoung Lee, Executive VP of DRAM Product & Technology at Samsung Electronics, said, “Using differentiated process technology, Samsung’s industry-leading 12nm-class DDR5 DRAM delivers outstanding performance and power efficiency. 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.”
