JEDEC’s DDR5 DRAM Standards Under Development

While many doubted it would ever see the light of day, it seems that the advent of DDR5 memory is nearly upon us. The JEDEC Solid State Technology Association has announced that it is currently developing the specifications for DDR5 DRAM and NVDIMM-P Design standards. DDR5 is expected to be twice as powerful as the current DDR4 standard found in modern PCs, while boasting greater power efficiency. JEDEC, though, has not revealed when it expects DDR5 to hit the market.

“JEDEC DDR5 memory will offer improved performance with greater power efficiency as compared to previous generation DRAM technologies,” the organisation says. “As planned, DDR5 will provide double the bandwidth and density over DDR4, along with delivering improved channel efficiency. These enhancements, combined with a more user-friendly interface for server and client platforms, will enable high performance and improved power management in a wide variety of applications.”

“Increasing server performance requirements are driving the need for more advanced technologies, and the standardization of next generation memory such as DDR5 and the new generation persistent modules NVDIMM-P will be essential to fulfilling those needs,” Mian Quddus, Chairman of the JEDEC Board of Directors, said. “Work on both standards is progressing quickly, and we invite all interested engineers worldwide to visit the JEDEC website for more information about JEDEC membership and participation in JEDEC standards-setting activities.”

JEDEC will reveal more details on its new standards at its Server Forum event in Santa Clara, CA on 19th June, 2017.
