Memory chip vendor Micron Technology Inc. (Boise, Idaho) has announced the introduction of a monolithic 8Gbit DDR3 synchronous DRAM component. The chip is based on Micron's 25nm DRAM manufacturing process.
The chip is expected to find sales in servers for data analytics, search and social networking applications. The availability of the 8Gbit DRAM will allow the creation of 32Gbyte RDIMM (registered dual-in-line memory module) for use in data centers, Micron said.
"The SeaMicro SM15000 server is deployed in some of the most demanding data center environments, and this product allows us to expand the memory footprint to meet the performance needs of hyperscale data centers requiring efficient, high performance server systems," said Dhiraj Mallick, a corporate vice president at Advanced Micro Devices Inc., in a statement issued by Micron.
Micron's DDR3 portfolio includes 8-Gbit dual – and single-die components and 16Gbit, 32Gbit and 64Gbit DIMMs based on them.
