Press Release

Samsung Electronics launches its first PCIe 4.0 solid-state drive, the Samsung PM1733 PCIe Gen4 (SSD), along with high-density RDIMM and LRDIMM dynamic random access memory (DRAM) for the newly launched AMD EPYC 7002 Generation Processors. Samsung’s PCIe Gen 4-enabled PM1733 SSD will have double the throughput capabilities of current Gen 3 SSDs, giving it the highest performance of any SSD on the market today. It reads sequentially at 8.0GB/s and randomly at 1500K IOPS, while offering capacities up to 30.72TB for U.2 (Gen 4 x4) configurations and 15.36TB for the HHHL (Gen 4 x8) form factor. The Samsung PM1733 SSD is produced with Gen5 512Gb TLC V-NAND flash memory.

“AMD has listened to the needs of its customers in developing the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors and has worked closely with us to integrate the best of our cutting-edge memory and storage products,” said Jinman Han, senior VP of Memory Product Planning, Samsung Electronics. “With these new datacenter processors, AMD is providing customers with a processor that enables a new standard for the modern datacenter.”

“We’re excited and thankful to have partners like Samsung supporting the launch of our 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors,” said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, Datacenter Solutions Group, AMD. “With twice the cores, breakthrough performance and embedded security features, all optimized by leadership architecture, customers can now transform their datacenter operations at the pace of their business growth.”

The Samsung PM1733 drive will be available industry-wide this quarter in both U.2 and HHHL variants, and will be backward compatible with PCIe Gen 3 architectures, providing exceptional flexibility for existing and future server applications. The Samsung PM1733 drives also feature Dual Port capabilities to support storage as well as server applications.

In addition to Samsung’s PM1733 SSD, Samsung has provided its full line-up of RDIMM and LRDIMM DRAM products for AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processors. Using component architectures of 8Gb and 16Gb DDR4, Samsung is able to offer DIMM capacities ranging from 8GB to 256GB. With Samsung high-density DIMMs, users can tap into as much as 4TB of memory per CPU.
