The development of the widely-anticipated DDR5 (Double Data Rate 5) and NVDIMM-P Design standards is moving forward, with publication for both to be forecasted for 2018.
JEDEC DDR5 memory will offer improved performance with greater power efficiency as compared to previous generation DRAM technologies. As planned, DDR5 will provide double the bandwidth and density over DDR4, along with delivering improved channel efficiency. These enhancements, combined with a more user-friendly interface for server and client platforms, will enable high performance and improved power management in a wide variety of applications.
Hybrid DIMM technologies such as JEDEC NVDIMM-P will enable new memory solutions optimized for cost, power usage and performance. Adding to the existing NVDIMM-N JEDEC standards, NVDIMM-P will be a new high capacity persistent memory module for computing systems.
JEDEC plans to host in-depth technical workshops on both DDR5 and NVDIMM-P to facilitate a better understanding and faster industry-wide adoption of the standards.
