Micron DDR5 to Boost Data Centre Performance

Micron Technology, Inc., has announced that it has begun sampling DDR5 Registered DIMMs (RDIMM), based on its industry-leading 1znm process technology.

DDR5 which is the most technologically advanced DRAM as of now, will allow 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 centre system architect looking to supply rapidly growing processor core counts with increased memory bandwidth and capacity.

“Data centre 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.”

The rapidly expanding datasets and compute-intensive applications have fueled processor core count growth which will be bandwidth-starved by current DRAM technology which resulted to advanced workloads. The DDR5 performance has shown an increase of more than 1.85 times compared to DDR4. What modern data centres require, DDR5 are able to increase reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS).

Micron, a global leader in memory technology, brings more than 40 years of expertise in design, manufacturing, delivery and support to its global list of partners and customers. Micron’s portfolio of DDR5 SDRAM products sets the bar higher than ever before.
