Samsung's DDR4 Memory for Faster, More Efficient Servers
DDR4 memory is finally in mass production, as Samsung Semiconductor announced it's mass producing 4GB modules, based on "20nm-class" process technology. 32GB sticks like the ones shown above are headed for the premium server market, where Samsung claims their higher speeds (up to 2,667 Mb/s) make for higher performance and 30 percent less power consumption than DDR3. The company claims this is the world's smallest and highest performing 4GB RAM chip, and we expect it won't stop there -- when Samsung showcased the technology in 2011 it claimed speeds could eventually reach as high as 4Gbps.
In the past I've found memory transitions on typical desktop systems to be basically lackluster and I see no reason why this would be different with DDR4. I may upgrade to or add a Haswell-E system when its released so we'll see.
I thought instead of repeatedly tweaking DDR, desktop memory technology would go QDR, but I guess I was wrong.
