At the Hot Chips conference, Samsung provided an update about its DDR5 memory roadmap. AnandTech writes the slides reveal the South Korean electronics giant is thinking about 512GB DDR5 memory modules with a speed of 7.2Gbps. This is a module for the server market of course, it offers double the capacity of what's offered at the top of the market today.
One of the big things about increasing capacity in memory is that you end up stacking more memory together. For their part, Samsung is stating that they can stack 8 DDR5 dies together and still be smaller than 4 dies of DDR4. This is achieved by thinning each die, but also new through-silicon-via connection topographies that allow for a reduced gap between dies of up to 40%. This is partnered by new cooling technologies between dies to assist with thermal performance.
Samsung says it will start mass-producing 512GB DDR5 memory modules by the end of this year, but the company didn't mention the speed of the 512GB modules it will make this year.
