Presents highly innovative new memory solution combining DDR4 DRAM
and PCIe SSD
Under a “New Memory Paradigm” theme, Samsung introduced advanced memory solutions optimized especially for next generation data centers that use cloud computing based on a big data platform. This type of infrastructure is rapidly increasing in support of the mobile computing industry. The newly presented fifth generation green memory solutions will help to resolve key data center issues by achieving dramatic performance improvements, securing additional physical space for systems, and saving large amounts of power.
In his keynote,
“We will continue to benefit society with the introduction of green IT technology in cooperation with our global partners to lead the global IT industry in creating greater shared value for customers,” he added.
Designed to achieve dramatic improvements in investment efficiency by upgrading existing IT systems and suggesting new ones, Samsung’s fifth generation of memory includes:
The Green DDR4 solution achieves a server data transfer speed of 2,133 megabits per second (Mb/s), a leap over DDR3’s performance limit of 1,866 Mb/s. This enables a 15 percent performance boost and consumes 24 percent less energy. It also provides a greater amount of error correction in further improving system reliability. Samsung is planning on expanding the high-speed DDR4 DRAM market even more in the future with additional next-generation products and will be able to eventually offer DDR4 with a data transfer speed of 3,200Mb/s, 1.5 times faster than today’s DDR4 enterprise products.
Samsung’s new green PCIe SSD solution offers a data transfer speed of four gigabytes per second (GB/s), which is six times faster than 600MB/s SATA SSD’s, while reducing the delay in data transfer by 67 percent. These performance upgrades further maximize IT return on investment by increasing the level of energy efficiency approximately 2.6 times. Samsung plans to introduce other next-generation PCIe SSDs, based on its new 3D V-NAND technology and a new proprietary NAND controller, at a later date, in further expanding the premium SSD market.
