Samsung mass producing 8GB DDR3 SoDIMMs
Samsung Electronics is mass producing what it says is the highest density memory module for laptops and mobile workstations. The 8GB small outline dual inline memory module (SoDIMM) utilises 40 nm-class DDR3 DRAMs in a 1G x 64 configuration and can be used in laptops and workstations.
It runs at 1333MHz and requires 1.5V. Dell is the first to market with the device, and is offering it in the 17in Dell Precision M6500 mobile workstation.
"Dell, a leading workstation provider, quickly embraced the industry's highest density DRAM by being the first to launch 32GB mobile workstations with the Samsung 8GB module," said Jim Elliott, vice president, memory marketing and product planning, Samsung Semiconductor. "These high speed modules provide faster data processing for design engineers and other professionals who want workstations that not only hum, but sing."
Eight gigabyte DDR3 memory consumes 53% percent less power than two 4GB DDR3 modules, in meeting the growing demand for lower power consumption.
