Press Release

SK hynix becomes the first to ship samples of 24 Gigabit (Gb) DDR5 DRAM with the industry’s largest density for a single DRAM chip, just 14 months after releasing the brand’s first DDR5 DRAM in October 2020. The new 24Gb DDR5 was produced with the cutting-edge 1anm technology that utilizes EUV process. It has a density of 24Gb per chip, which is up from the existing density of 16Gb in 1ynm DDR5, with improved production efficiency and increased speed by up to 33%.

Green Production
SK hynix is also proud to announce reduced carbon emissions and power consumption in manufacturing the 24Gb DDR5 DRAM modules. SK hynix managed to reduce the product’s power consumption by 25% compared to existing products while lowering energy use in manufacturing through enhanced production efficiency. SK hynix expects the product to bring about a reduction in carbon emissions as well, which is meaningful in the context of ESG management.

48GB and 96GB Modules For Data Centres
SK hynix’s initial offerings on this product are set to be 48 Gigabyte (GB) and 96GB modules for supply to cloud data centres. It is also expected to power high-performance servers for big data processing such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, as well as realizing Metaverse applications among others.

“Intel and SK Hynix have a long history of strong collaboration,” said Carolyn Duran, Vice President of Memory and IO Technologies in Intel’s Data Center and AI Group. “Today’s announcement is another illustration of our two companies working together to deliver a 24Gb solution to address needs of our mutual customers. The 24Gb DDR5 offering provides high mono die capacity and will help customers boost performance of memory capacity bound workloads such as data analytics while bringing significant TCO benefits.”
