Samsung starts mass production of DDR5 memories.

Using a 14nm EUV process, modules will reach speeds of 7.2Gbps and up to 768GB of capacity.

South Korean Samsung announced that it has started mass production of DDR5 RAM memory modules, aimed at high-performance computing (HPC) and servers, the new modules will use the brand’s own 14nm EUV process.


According to Samsung, the new manufacturing process for its DDR5 memory modules will provide impressive speeds, reduced consumption and increased module density. The manufacturer said it could reach up to 7.2Gbps in its DDR5 modules, which is more than double the previous generation that reached 3.2Gbps in DDR4. Using the new DRAM modules with up to 24Gb, module density will jump from the current 512GB to 1TB to up to 768GB to 1.5TB of capacity. In addition, the 14nm EUV process provides up to 20% improvement in energy efficiency, and 20% greater use of the wafer in the production of chips.

Speaking to the senior vice president and head of DRAM products and technology at Samsung Electronics, Jooyoung Lee, he said:

Samsung’s new five-layer EUV process enables the industry’s highest DRAM bit density, increasing productivity by approximately 20% (per wafer). We have led the DRAM market for nearly three decades, pioneering key standardization technology innovations.

Samsung is willing to be a pioneer in the manufacture of new DDR5 memories, with the growing demand, both for computers, smartphones, internet of things and 5G.

New generation, new prices

Although this Samsung announcement is aimed at the corporate market, with the arrival of processors supporting DDR5 memories, aimed at the casual consumer, it is expected that DRAM manufacturers announce their releases to embrace these new consumers. The South Korean giant is also planning releases for this audience, but with no announcements at the moment.

As with any technology release, the initial cost of these products can be quite high for early adopters, we can see how these new generation memory releases will “talk” to the current shortage of semiconductors, which according to some experts, can last until the end of 2022, link to article.
