Samsung is the first in the industry to begin volume production of modules containing a 16 gigabit (Gb) monolithic 64 gigabyte (GB) DDR4 memory solution.
The new registered dual in-line memory module (RDIMM), which is designed primarily for use in enterprise and cloud server applications, will be shown at the HPE Discover Las Vegas conference and exhibition June 19-21 at the Venetian-Palazzo Resort Center in Booth #170.
The HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 server based on the AMD EPYC 7000 processors will be the first server platform in the industry qualified to use 64GB RDIMMs based on the new Samsung 16Gb technology, providing up to two terabytes (TB) of memory in a two-processor, 32-DIMM configuration with the 16Gb, 64GB solution. In addition, HPE announced its single-processor HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 server on June 5, for which Samsung's 16Gb technology is being qualified before its official introduction next month.
The Samsung 16Gb monolithic 64GB RDIMM provides a boost in performance over that of an 8 Gb monolithic chip at double the density, featuring raw speeds of up to 2666MT/s, with future releases expect to surpass that. In addition, it consumes 19 percent less power compared to a similar-density implementation using two 32GB RDIMMs.
Samsung said that it will also soon begin sampling 16Gb-based 256GB DIMMs, which would expand the memory capacity for a 2P server to as much as 8TB. Sampling is projected to be completed by year end.
