Samsung's New Memory Chip Could Lead to 32GB DIMMs

Maximum PC Staff

Thanks to Samsung, the first 4GB DDR3 chip has been made available to the world, making them the first to double the maximum capacity of DRAM modules. This advance will allow Samsung to offer high-end, dual-die devices that will support up to 32GB of RAM.

Born from 50 nm process technology the new 4GB monster chips will be made available to servers first, followed by DIMMs fit for desktop computers and then notebook size SODIMMs.

These chips will run at only 1.35 volts, which is 20 percent less than the usual 1.5 volt DDR3 memory that you’ll find on the market today. Samsung hasn’t made any mention yet about the pricing or availability of these chips.
