DDR5 (Double Data Rate 5) will provide double the bandwidth and density over DDR4, along with delivering improved channel efficiency, says JEDEC Solid State Technology Association, who is the global leader in the development of standards for the microelectronics industry.
The Publication of the standard is forecasted for 2018 and until all actual manufacturers of RAM memory change their patterns for making the new standard , the consumer will see available the DDR5 RAM memory around year 2020 or 2021. DDR4 was finalized in 2012, but didn’t become widely available until 2015.
JEDEC DDR5 & NVDIMM-P Standards Under Development
Preview both at JEDEC's Server Forum in June 2017
ARLINGTON, Va., USA – MARCH 30, 2017 –JEDEC Solid State Technology Association, the global leader in the development of standards for the microelectronics industry, today announced that development of the widely-anticipated DDR5 (Double Data Rate 5) and NVDIMM-P Design standards is moving forward rapidly. Publication for both is forecasted for 2018. Industry users will have the opportunity to learn more about each standard at JEDEC’s Server Forum event in Santa Clara, CA on Monday, June 19, 2017. For more information and to register, visit the JEDEC website.
JEDEC DDR5 memory will offer improved performance with greater power efficiency as compared to previous generation DRAM technologies. As planned, DDR5 will provide double the bandwidth and density over DDR4, along with delivering improved channel efficiency. These enhancements, combined with a more user-friendly interface for server and client platforms, will enable high performance and improved power management in a wide variety of applications.
As demand for DRAM capacity and bandwidth continues to grow within systems, Hybrid DIMM technologies such as JEDEC NVDIMM-P will enable new memory solutions optimized for cost, power usage and performance. Adding to the existing NVDIMM-N JEDEC standards, NVDIMM-P will be a new high capacity persistent memory module for computing systems.
In addition to the previews at JEDEC’s Server Forum, JEDEC plans to host in-depth technical workshops on both DDR5 and NVDIMM-P to facilitate a better understanding and faster industry-wide adoption of the standards. More details will be available on the JEDEC website later this year.
Mian Quddus, Chairman of the JEDEC Board of Directors, said: “Increasing server performance requirements are driving the need for more advanced technologies, and the standardization of next generation memory such as DDR5 and the new generation persistent modules NVDIMM-P will be essential to fulfilling those needs.” He added, “Work on both standards is progressing quickly, and we invite all interested engineers worldwide to visit the JEDEC website for more information about JEDEC membership and participation in JEDEC standards-setting activities.”
JEDEC is the global leader in the development of standards for the microelectronics industry. Thousands of volunteers representing nearly 300 member companies work together in 50 JEDEC committees to meet the needs of every segment of the industry, manufacturers and consumers alike. The publications and standards generated by JEDEC committees are accepted throughout the world. All JEDEC standards are available for free download from the JEDEC website.
