Samsung confirmed the first 12nm-class DDR5 DRAM. Today, Samsung introduced a newly revised version of their 16 GB DDR5 DRAM product line. The memory is constructed using a process class of 12nm technique, representing an upgrade over the 14nm EUV product that is presently available on the market.
It was stated that the new DDR5 DRAM is compatible with AMD products, and it was designed and certified on Zen systems to achieve this compatibility. According to Jooyoung Lee, Executive Vice President of DRAM Products and Technology at Samsung, the newly established standard will be a crucial enabler in pushing the market-wide adoption of DDR5 DRAM.

It is made with a novel material that boosts cell capacitance and a unique design technique that improves crucial circuit properties. Both of these factors contribute to the product’s overall performance. EUV (Extreme ultraviolet) lithography is the foundation of the new DRAM, which makes it possible to achieve a greater die density and improve wafer productivity by 20%.
It also has a 23% lower power consumption, which paves the way for more eco-friendly business practices among information technology organizations. The first memory sticks equipped with the advanced DDR5 DRAM are anticipated to begin selling in 2023.
