A first look at the official specifications of DDR4 memory types
The official specifications of the new DDR4 memory types were defined and published by the JEDEC Solid State Technology Association.The new memories would dramatically increase the computers performance.
The specifications refer to high performance, increased reliability and reduced consumption.
The revealed specification of the “per-pin data rate” is a minimum of 1,6 Gigatransfers per second (GigaTransfers per second – GT/s) with the maximum value reaching 3,2 GT/s, but are expected to overcome these numbers as future improvements will occur, this also happened with the specifications of DDR3.
The speeds will start at 2133MHz, significantly higher than those of DDR3, while the electric power needs will be comparatively lower. The new memory types will be used in PCs, servers and mobile devices, the first specimens are already tested and are expected to launch in early 2013.
