SK hynix's 64GB DDR5 RAM read and write is so fast, there isn't a CPU that can run it yet


South Korea's SK hynix today launched the world's very first 64GB DDR5 modules for future PCs.

SK hynix unleashes the first 64GB DDR5 modules

DDR5 is said to provide major gains in speed and capacity. SK hynix revealed that its DDR5-4800 chips supporting 4,800 to 5,600 MB/s transfer speeds are 1.8x faster than DDR4 while consuming 20 percent less power. In theory, it can transfer 9 (nine) 5GB big FHD movies in one second.

SK Hynix noted that it has an operating voltage of 1.1 volts and reduced power consumption as well as operating costs as well.

It is also claimed that we could see 256GB memory modules using the company's through-silicon-via (TSV) technology.

DDR5 is claimed to be optimized for Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML).

So far, there's no CPU that can support this tech yet. SK hynix is targeting data centers first where the higher capacity and lower power draw will be useful.

Industry analysts claimed that we could see DDR5 usage will rise in 2021 with 10 percent of the market share. In 2022, it is expected to rise to 44 percent.

SK hynix is the world's second-largest DRAM maker with 30 percent of the market share.
