Crucial has said its next generation memory will not be released this year.
The memory maker originally said that its new DDR4 DRAM modules would arrive in late 2013, but in an official statement sent to PCR, Crucial said: “Earlier this year, Crucial announced future availability of our new DDR4 DRAM modules which will enable the next-generation of consumer and enterprise computing products.
“We are currently busy sampling DDR4 modules in support of our industry partner’s development and continue to work diligently with them to make sure that Crucial delivers not only world-class compatibility but world-class quality. We expect to make our DDR4 DRAM modules commercially available in the spring of 2014.”
Some of the main benefits of DDR4 compared to its predecessor include the fact that it will be twice as fast – offering speeds of 2.1 GHz and above, and it will be more energy efficient – using up to a fifth less power than DDR3.
