Samsung says it has begun volume production of 64GB DDR4 RDIMMs based on 16Gb DRAM chips.
The company says that, by the end of the year, it will complete the sampling of 16Gb–based 256GB DIMMs, which would expand the memory capacity for a 2P server to as much as 8TB.
The dual in-line RDIMM is designed primarily for use in enterprise and cloud server applications.
The HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 server based on the AMD EPYC 7000 processors will be the first major server platform qualified to use the Samsung 64GB RDIMMs providing up to two terabytes (TB) of memory in a two-processor, 32–DIMM configuration with the 16Gb, 64GB solution.
Samsung says its 64GB RDIMM operates at speeds up to 2666MT/s and consumes 19% less power compared to a similar–density implementation using two 32GB RDIMMs.
