It has been revealed this week by Crucial that the company is gearing up to launch its new DDR4 SDRAM and start shipping modules before the end of this year to consumers.
When compared to the current DDR3 generation of memory DDR4 offers twice as much density, enabling Crucial to offer more from single memory module and the smaller dies translate into more gigabits per component, enabling the manufacture of higher capacity modules, up to 16GB in size.
The DDR4 standard has already been approved by JEDEC, and the arrival of the new DDR4 memory is in the hands of the manufactures such as Crucial who is leading the way and explains :
“Designed to enable the next generation of enterprise and consumer products, Crucial® DDR4 memory technology represents the future of computing. Moving beyond the outgrown limitations of DDR3 module architecture, Crucial DDR4 memory is engineered to pack more performance into your system and has the capability to double the available density per module.
Crucial DDR4 modules will use up to 20% less voltage than previous technology, and will enable mainstream data rates that are at least twice as fast as DDR3 memory. With DDR4 memory in your system, get ready to process data twice as fast, load applications faster, experience quick snap responsiveness and increased ability to multitask. If you thought the tablets, ultrabooks, and desktops of today already seem fast — get ready to be blown away. The technology that enables electronics is about to get better and faster than ever before.”
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by Crucial for their new DDR4 memory, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
