Micron Technology, Inc. has announced commercial and industrial channel partner availability of Micron DDR5 server DRAM. It enables up to an 85% increase in system performance over DDR4 DRAM. It is ideal for for AI, HPC and data-intensive applications that require more CPU compute capacity and higher memory bandwidth than DDR4 technology can support.
“As data continues to grow exponentially, the need to derive insights from that data is critical to business success,” said Teresa Kelley, vice president and general manager of Micron’s Commercial Products Group. “Data centre operators need to maximise platform performance with advanced memory capabilities and processor advancements. Micron DDR5 server DRAM provides unparalleled bandwidth to manage even the most memory-intensive applications. Micron has been on the forefront of the industry’s transition to DDR5 memory technology and is committed to empowering data centre customers and channel partners in their server DDR5 DRAM qualification and readiness efforts.”
DDR5-enabled servers are being evaluated and tested in data centre environments and are expected to be adopted at an increasing rate throughout the remainder of 2022. The introductory data rate for DDR5 is 4800MT/s but is anticipated to increase to meet future data centre workload demands. Micron DDR5 server memory is available immediately through global commercial and industrial channel partners.
