Samsung introduces green memory solutions

Samsung Electronics, announced its fifth generation of green memory at the Memory Solutions Forum 2013 in Seoul last week. The newly presented fifth generation green memory solutions will help to resolve key data centre issues by achieving dramatic performance improvements, securing additional physical space for systems, and saving large amounts of power.

The Green DDR4 solution achieves a server data transfer speed of 2,133 megabits per second (Mb/s), a leap over DDR3′s performance limit of 1,866 Mb/s. This enables a 15 percent performance boost and consumes 24 percent less energy.

Samsung’s green PCIe SSD solution offers a data transfer speed of four gigabytes per second (GB/s), which is six times faster than 600MB/s SATA SSD’s, while reducing the delay in data transfer by 67 percent. These performance upgrades further maximize IT return on investment by increasing the level of energy efficiency approximately 2.6 times.

A combination of Samsung’s DDR4 and PCIe SSD green memory solutions can achieve the highest level of efficiency among widely used green IT solutions and overcome difficult prerequisites for new server systems involving budget, power consumption and space optimisation.

If all server systems adopted Samsung’s fifth generation green memory solutions, an anticipated power savings of 45 terawatts per hour could be achieved. This translates into six billion people saving the power needed for everyday smartphone use for two years, which is equivalent to planting 800 million 10-year-old trees.

Samsung will continue its “3S” innovation strategy – involving systems, solutions and software, along with creating shared value (CSV) for itself and its customers, while developing more highly efficient green memory solutions that improve IT investments.
