Samsung has shipped its first 16GB DDR3 memory modules, which use a 50nm manufacturing process and operate at a 1.35v power level. The modules use the higher density and more efficient 2Gbit process Samsung first revealed in September.
Designed for use in servers, the new 16GB modules can allow for up to 192GB of memory to be installed in a typical two-socket server. The company plans on offering 18 configurations of its DDR3 server memory line.
While prices for DDR3 remain high, the modules are widely expected to take over the market in the coming years as prices fall and buyers opt for the higher data transfer rates and power savings.
Samsung cited data from research firm IDC predicting that over the next two years DDR3 would account for 75 per cent of the SDRAM market, with 2Gbit modules comprising a third of those sales.
