SK Hynix recently announced that it has developed a new 8GB DDR4 RAM module, based on its latest 10nm-class, or 1Ynm technology. According to TechPowerUp, the new memory is reportedly 20% faster than standard DDR4 memory, and even boasts a reduction of 15% in power consumption. Compared to the previous 1Xnm memory technology.
Additionally, the new 1Ynm memory format also supports data transfer speeds of up to 3200Mbps, and also adopted what it calls a “4 Phase Clocking” method. Doubling the clockspeeds that in turn, boosts data transfer speeds and stability. The new memory module also features a new transistor structure, which makes SK Hynix says lowers the possibility of data errors.
SK Hynix has said that it first intends to introduce the new 1Ynm memory module technology to the Server and PC market segment. Followed by the possibility of creating a more mobile-friendly variant of the memory module. At the time of writing, there’s no indication when that time is.
