Samsung has announced that it has begun mass producing the industry’s first 32GB DDR4 SoDIMM (small outline dual in-line memory modules) memory. The new 10-nanometer technology will further improve PC-grade gaming on the go “with significantly more capacity, higher speeds, and lower energy consumption.”
Samsung envisions the technology being fitted by OEMs in top-of-the-line gaming laptops in order to eek out better performance while extending the battery life of the machine.
Discussing the development, Sewon Chun, senior vice president of memory marketing at Samsung Electronics, said:
“Samsung’s 32GB DDR4 DRAM modules will deliver gaming experiences on laptops more powerful and immersive than ever before. We will continue to provide the most advanced DRAM portfolios with enhanced speed and capacity for all key market segments including premium laptops and desktops.”
According to Samsung, the new memory hardware that has entered production brings several improvements over the last generation of memory. For example, compared to Samsungs 16GB SoDIMM, which was based on 20nm-class 8-GB DDR4, the new hardware is 11% faster and power usage is down by a massive 39%.
The firm didn’t give a specific date that we would start seeing the memory emerge in hardware but if you find yourself in the market for a gaming laptop later this year it might be a good idea to be on the lookout for this new hardware.
