According to Samsung, the modules operate at 1.35V and have 20% greater throughput compared to 1.5V DDR3 modules. Its lower power consumption levels are in line with the ongoing trend towards more energy-efficient “green” systems. Samsung believes the development of higher density, low-power components will not only reduce electricity bills and other datacenter costs, but will also increase the overall operational efficiency.
In addition to targeting data centers and servers, Samsung’s 4 gigabit chips will also be used to produce 8GB DIMMs for workstations, desktops and laptops – though the company has yet to announce availability and pricing details.
