Finally made official specification for DDR4 RAM

Finally made official specification for DDR4 RAM

Several years ago some companies like Samsung are presenting their first DDR4 memory modules , most recently joining Hynix and Micron , although the specification is not yet finished. But that is a thing of the past, because eventually the Solid State Technology Association in charge of that work has officially released what will be the future standard DDR4.

With this, defining the characteristics that can meet these new modules to achieve better performance and stability, while consuming less energy. memories will be of 284 pins in its connector (DDR3 has 240), while the version intended SO-DIMM 256-pin laptop will.

Furthermore, it was established that the energy required is 1.2 volts, 1.5 volts unlike seen in DDR3, while transfers may handle in the order of 3.2 GT / sec. It is expected to start then the mass of the standard, although it is expected to be slow because DDR3 has exceeded its official specifications, so the jump in performance will not be as dramatic as expected and less to attract users and assemblers equipment.
