DDR4 memory rumored to be used in Intel Haswell-EX

/ 5 years ago

The computing industry will see its next transition to a new memory standard only by 2014, and enterprise processors based on the “Haswell” microarchitecture will drive the change, according to a VR-Zone report.

While client processors based on the Haswell architecture will retain current DDR3 memory standard with a possibility of higher DDR3 clock speeds, enterprise processors under the “Haswell-EX” family will feature the industry’s first DDR4 memory controllers for x86. Following that, DDR4 will filter down to future client platforms. Pictured below, is a DDR4 UDIMM by Samsung.
