World’s second largest DRAM producer – SK Hynix – has launched the world’s first DDR5 DRAM in S Korea. It is a next-gen DRAM standard with transfer rates of 4800-5600 Mbps – 1.8X faster than DDR4. The product also consumes less power with operating voltage 1.1V, being lowered from DDR4’s 1.2 V. It is optimised for use in data intensive applications – big data, AI, ML. Researchers expect DDR5 to cover 10% of the total DRAM market in 2022 and 43% in 2024.
