Samsung says it's now mass producing what it claims is the most advanced DDR4 memory in the world. Built on 20nm-class process technology, Samsung's 16GB and 32GB DDR4 memory modules will find homes in enterprise servers and next-generation, large-scale data centers, the South Korean memory maker said.

"The adoption of ultra-high-speed DDR4 in next-generation server systems this year will initiate a push toward advanced premium memory across the enterprise," said Young-Hyun Jun, executive vice president, memory sales and marketing, Samsung Electronics. "After providing cutting-edge performance with our timely supply of 16GB DDR3 earlier this year, we are continuing to extend the premium server market in 2013 and will now focus on higher density and added performance with 32GB DDR4, and contribute to even greater growth of the green IT market in 2014."

Samsung says companies can benefit from using DDR4 memory in next-generation servers, which as a result will see higher system level performance and "significantly" lower overall power consumption, as well as reduced operational costs.

Mass production of Samsung's 20nm-class 4Gb DDR4 comes five years after the introduction of 50nm-class 2Gb DDR3. It has the fastest DRAM data transmission rate of 2,667 megabits per second, which is 1.25X faster compared to 20nm-class DDR3. The DDR4 part also consumes 30 percent less power than DDR3, Samsung says.

Better performance and lower power consumption - what's not to like ? Oh yeah - the prices, which are bound to be stratospheric....
