Just because Intel Developer Forum (IDF) isn't over, doesn't mean the news stops flowing. It seems this past week at IDF 2013 was all about the memory. First Kingston was spotted showing off DDR4 memory for servers. Now ADATA gets the spotlight to show off their DDR4 memory modules too.
As with other brands, ADATA will be starting with ECC server RAM with moderate speeds, but huge performance gains. The current DDR4 RAM will be available up to 2133 MHz with a transfer rate up to 3.2 Gbps at just 1.2 volts. This will put these modules at a voltages well below even low voltage DDR3 RAM which works at around 1.35 volts. The target audience will be pleased as this will lead to lower energy costs and larger scale without giving up any performance.
The obvious next step is for ADATA to prepare this RAM for the commercial market. For that, we all want them to crank up the voltage and the speeds. But the question will be, when will the motherboards show up?
No dates or shipping prices were revealed but expect that information to come forward as the motherboard launches near.
