The Next Leap in Data Center Performance Arrives With Micron DDR5

DDR5 RDIMMs target next-generation server platforms driven by exponential data growth across cloud, enterprise, high-performance computing and artificial intelligence applications

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CES — Micron Tech­no­lo­gy, Inc. (Nasdaq: MU) today announ­ced that it has begun sam­pling DDR5 Regis­tered DIMMs (RDIMM), based on its indus­try-lea­ding 1znm pro­cess tech­no­lo­gy. DDR5, the most tech­no­lo­gi­cal­ly advan­ced DRAM to date, will enab­le the next genera­ti­on of ser­ver workloads by deli­vering more than an 85% incre­a­se in memo­ry per­for­mance. DDR5 dou­bles memo­ry den­si­ty while impro­ving relia­bi­li­ty at a time when data cen­ter sys­tem archi­tects seek to sup­ply rapidly gro­wing pro­ces­sor core counts with incre­a­sed memo­ry band­width and capacity.

Data cen­ter workloads will be incre­a­singly chal­len­ged to extract value from the acce­le­ra­ting growth of data across vir­tual­ly all app­li­ca­ti­ons,” said Tom Eby, seni­or vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger of the Com­pu­te & Net­wor­king Busi­ness Unit at Micron. “The key to enab­ling the­se workloads is hig­her-per­for­mance, den­ser, hig­her-qua­li­ty memo­ry. Micron’s sam­pling of DDR5 RDIMMs repres­ents a signi­fi­cant mile­stone, brin­ging the indus­try one step clo­ser to unlo­cking the value in next-genera­ti­on data-centric applications.”

Advan­ced workloads resul­ting from rapidly expan­ding data­sets and com­pu­te-inten­si­ve app­li­ca­ti­ons have fue­led pro­ces­sor core count growth which will be band­width-star­ved by cur­rent DRAM tech­no­lo­gy. DDR5 will deli­ver more than a 1.85 times incre­a­se in per­for­mance com­pa­red to DDR4. DDR5 also enab­les the incre­a­sed relia­bi­li­ty, avai­la­bi­li­ty and ser­vicea­bi­li­ty (RAS) that modern data cen­ters require.
