Micron starts shipping 128GB DDR5 RDIMM memory

Micron Technology has started shipping its monolithic 32Gb DRAM die-based 128GB DDR5 RDIMM memory in speeds up to 5,600 MT/s on all leading server platforms.

Intel said Micron’s 128GB DDR5 RDIMM memory is the first 32Gb monolithic DRAM-based DIMM that has completed Intel platform memory compatibility qualification on 4th and 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors.

Micron’s 128GB DDR5 RDIMM memory will be supported by partners including AMD, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Intel, Supermicro, along with many others.

“AI servers will be configured with Micron’s 24GB 8-high HBM3E for GPU-attached memory and Micron’s 128GB RDIMMs for CPU-attached memory to deliver the capacity, bandwidth and power-optimized infrastructure required for memory intensive workloads,” said Praveen Vaidyanathan, vice president and general manager of Micron’s Compute Products Group.

“Our customers can get impact out of the high-capacity DDR5 memory offering from Micron in an AMD EPYC CPU powered server, delivering the performance and efficiency needed for the modern data center,” said Dan McNamara, senior vice president and general manager, Server Business Unit, AMD.

“We are committed to providing the most high-performing, energy-efficient solutions, and through our collaboration with Micron, plan to deliver monolithic, high-density DRAM across our AI portfolio to help our enterprise customers gain optimal performance to tackle any workload,” Krista Satterthwaite, senior vice president and general manager, Compute at HPE, said.

“32Gb density based DDR5 DIMMs accelerates critical server and AI system configurations bringing forward key performance, capacity, and most importantly power efficiency benefits to Intel Xeon processor-based systems,” said Dr. Dimitrios Ziakas, vice president of Intel’s Memory and IO Technologies, Intel Corporation.

“Supermicro is leading the industry with the broadest accelerated server and solution portfolio based on NVIDIA, AMD and Intel,” said Wally Liaw, senior vice president of Business Development and co-founder at Supermicro. “Customers can benefit significantly from Supermicro’s advanced GPU SuperServers with the new 32Gb monolithic DRAM-based 128GB memory.”

Micron 128GB DDR5 RDIMM memory is available directly from Micron and will be available through select global channel distributors and resellers in June 2024.

Samsung is committed to increasing DDR5 capacity. Samsung is planning to expand the production of DRAM, investing in the infrastructure for advanced DRAM and increasing R&D spending to solidify its long-term market dominance.

Samsung is internally considering expanding DDR5 production lines. Given the high value of DDR5 and its adoption in the PC and server markets, this year is essentially regarded as the “year of widespread DDR5 adoption.”
