According to the source, referring to information from industry observers, Samsung Electronics is trying to convince Intel to release a server platform with support for DDR4 memory ahead of schedule. As you know, Intel plans to implement DDR4 is scheduled for 2014 .
Samsung’s interest due to the fact that the release of DDR3 memory chips become unprofitable because of low prices.
While the transition to DDR4 ready only Samsung and Hynix Semiconductor. If DDR4 memory was in demand in the near future, it would provide these companies a significant competitive advantage. Recall, the company released the first Samsung DDR4 memory modules in January 2011, and in April the same year, his success in the development ofDDR4 memory Hynix said .
Given how even the bankruptcy of Elpida Memory has not changed the situation on the market, DRAM, the transition to DDR4 industry experts is the only way out of the crisis of overproduction. Observers believe that the transition to DDR4 will happen faster than the transition from DDR2 to DDR3, which took three years.
The organization JEDEC Solid State Technology Association should adopt a standard DDR4 in the middle of this year.
