Samsung is the top most popular brand the memory chip maker. The company has now launched the industry’s first 512GB CXL DRAM module for servers. CXL stands for Compute Express Link, and this new DRAM technology offers extremely high capacity at very low latency.
If we look back on the company’s process, last May, the South Korean firm became the first to introduce the CXL DRAM module prototype. Since then, Samsung has been working with data servers and chip companies to standardize and improve the CXL DRAM standard.
Brands like Lenovo and Montage Technology are working with Samsung Semiconductor to integrate CXL DRAM modules into their systems. CXL offers much higher capacity than conventional DDR memory systems, and it is easier to scale and configure.
Samsung’s new CXL module is the first to support the latest PCIe 5.0 interface. It comes in the EDSFF (E3.S) form factor, which is excellent for next-generation cloud and enterprise servers.
Cheolmin Park, VP of Memory Global Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics, said, “CXL DRAM will become a critical turning point for future computing structures by substantially advancing artificial intelligence (AI) and big data services, as we aggressively expand its usage in next-generation memory architectures including software-defined memory (SDM). Samsung will continue to collaborate across the industry to develop and standardize CXL memory solutions, while fostering an increasingly solid ecosystem.“
