Transitioning from DDR3 to DDR4: The Next Generation of Memory

By Floyd GoodrichJuly 5, 2017

Introduced in 2007, DDR3 SDRAM (the third generation of double data rate synchronous DRAM) has remained the standard commodity DRAM, but staggering demands of modern hardware signaled the need for a more advanced memory architecture in terms of capacity, transfer speed, performance scalability, power efficiency, as well as system-level reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS). DDR4, the newest iteration in DRAM, is the answer to the call.

With significant advantages over DDR3, DDR4 SDRAM has emerged as the near-perfect solution to fill the needs of the current and future hardware and software architectures yet its adoption hasn’t been as widespread as it should have been.

This WPG Americas white paper will give you special insight into:

  • The benefits of DDR4 over other technologies
  • The challenges of transition to DDR4
  • Why migrating to DDR4 makes the most sense, and why it is in the process of becoming a competitive differentiator for the enterprise, micro-server, ultrathin, and tablet markets

As an industry leader in memory technology, Micron has been instrumental in driving DDR4 into the marketplace from the very outset, providing plenty of useful insights into DDR4’s device operation, migration issues, and features that address reliability, speed, power, and stacking capabilities.
