The Monster RAM: Here’s Samsung’s New Crazy 128GB RAM Chip


samsung-ram-128-gbShort Bytes: I’ve never met a single person in life who said “now my PC has enough RAM” and didn’t regret the statement after a couple of years. Understanding the same, hardware companies are innovating and bringing more options to fulfill your fantasies. To heat-up the war of the world’s fastest and largest RAM modules, Samsung has now released its 128GB DDR4 RAM for enterprise servers.

Samsung has recently announced that is has started producing 128GB DDR4 RAM modules at a large scale. This chip may look like a regular RAM module, but Samsung claims to come up with a breakthrough in the capacity and energy efficiency.

This new and crazy 128GB RAM is mainly focused on the big enterprise servers and makes use of Samsung’s “through silicon via” manufacturing technique. This beast packs 36 individual 4GB chunks of 3D TSV DDR4 DRAM.

This isn’t the first instance of monster RAM modules. Earlier in May, companies like Kingston and Corsair made the 128GB RAMs a reality and drove us crazy.

Designed for the enterprise, the RAM is claimed to have “the largest capacity and the highest energy efficiency of any DRAM modules today.” Talking about the speed, it touches as much as 2,400 megabits per second.

The chip also promises power savings up to 50 percent and data buffer section to optimize the module performance power consumption.

The Korean tech giant also mentions about the “e-modules with data transfer speeds of up to 2,667Mbps and 3,200Mbps that help to meet intensifying enterprise server needs, while expanding TSV applications into high bandwidth memory (HBM) and consumer products.”

Samsung hasn’t said anything about the pricing yet, but it’ll be expensive to start with, there’s no doubt about that.
