Semiconductor company SK Hynix has revealed the world’s first highest density 128GB DDR4 module.
The new module has double the density of 64GB by ‘taking advantage of TSV (Through Silicon Via)’ technology.
It works at 2133Mbps and with a 64-bit I/O it can process up to 17GB of data per second. Plus it also runs at a low voltage of 1.2V.
Samples of the world’s first 128GB and 64GB modules built on 8Gb DDR4 are available now, with SK Hynix planning to start mass production from the first half of 2015.
“The development of the world’s first 128GB DDR4 module has its significance in opening ultra-high density server market,” said the firm’s senior VP and head of DRAM development Sung Joo Hong.
“The company will further strengthen its competitiveness in the premium DRAM sphere with the development of high density, ultra-high speed and low power consuming products."
The server DRAM market is set to grow 37 per cent on average each year until 2018. DDR4 is expected to become the industry standard from 2016.
