Samsung Develops New LPCAMM Memory to Transform PC and Data Center DRAM

Samsung announced a breakthrough in memory technology, first LPCAMM (Low-Power Compressed Attached Memory Module) that promises to revolutionize DRAM for personal computers, laptops, and even data centers.

Traditionally, PCs and laptops used removable but inefficient DDR-based So-DIMM memory modules or soldered LPDDR chips with better performance but no replaceability, LPCAMM combines the best of both.

As a removable memory module, LPCAMM provides flexibility for device manufacturers vs LPDDR. And compared to So-DIMMs, the compact LPCAMM format reduces motherboard footprint by up to 60%.

This efficient design also enables massive gains in speed and power savings. Samsung states that LPCAMM delivers 50% higher performance and 70% improved energy efficiency compared to So-DIMMs.

The breakthrough is a result of Samsung’s advanced memory compression algorithms integrated into the LPCAMM hardware. Data patterns are optimized in real-time for reduced data movement.

This combination of removable form factor, reduced size, and extreme speed/efficiency improvements makes LPCAMM stand out versus previous DRAM technologies. It promises to transform memory capabilities for next-generation PCs and laptops.

Samsung also notes that LPCAMM may impact data center memory in the future. The technology has already passed validation on Intel platforms.

Samsung is collaborating with major partners including Intel to test LPCAMM-enabled systems this year, commercialization is targeted for 2024.

With hardware and software innovations enhancing DRAM capabilities to new levels, Samsung’s LPCAMM technology represents an exciting step in unlocking the full performance potential of computers, both large and small. The ripple effects on applications requiring fast memory access could be significant.
