Samsung Electronics announced today that it has developed its first support for Compute Express Link™ 128GB DRAM for (CXL™) 2.0. At the same time, Samsung collaborates closely with Intel in Intel® Zhiqiang® Significant progress has been made on the platform. After Samsung Electronics developed its first CXL DRAM (Memory Expander) based on CXL 1.1 in May 2022, it continued to launch 128GB CXL DRAM that supports CXL 2.0, which is expected to accelerate the commercialization of next-generation storage solutions. This solution supports PCIe 5.0 (x8 channels) and provides up to 35GB of bandwidth per second< Br/>
&Ldquo; As a board member of the CXL Alliance, Samsung Electronics has always been at the forefront of CXL technology; Jangseok Choi, Vice President of New Business Planning at Samsung Electronics, stated that; This breakthrough strengthens our determination to further expand the CXL ecosystem by collaborating with data centers, enterprise servers, and chip companies around the world& Rdquo< Br/>
Jim Pappas, Director of Technology Innovation at Intel Corporation, stated:; Intel is pleased to collaborate with Samsung to jointly invest in a vibrant CXL ecosystem. Intel will continue to work with Samsung to promote the development and adoption of innovative CXL products throughout the industry& Rdquo; Stephen Tai, President of Lanqi Technology, stated:; Lanqi Technology is pleased to mass produce the first batch of controllers that support CXL 2.0. We look forward to continuing to strengthen cooperation with Samsung to promote the development of CXL technology and expand its ecosystem& Rdquo< Br/>
CXL 2.0 is Samsung's first product in history to support memory pooling. Memory pooling is a memory management technique that binds multiple CXL memory blocks on a server platform together to form a memory pool, enabling multiple hosts to dynamically allocate memory from the pool as needed. This new technology enables customers to reduce costs and increase efficiency as much as possible, thereby helping businesses reinvest limited resources in enhancing server memory< Br/>
Samsung Electronics plans to begin mass production of this latest CXL 2.0 DRAM by the end of this year, and is preparing to launch multiple capacity products to meet the rapidly changing next-generation computing market and further accelerate the expansion of the CXL ecosystem< Br/>
As the next-generation memory scalable device, CXL can improve efficiency for accelerators, DRAMs, and storage devices used with CPUs in high-performance server systems. Due to its ability to expand bandwidth and capacity when used in conjunction with main memory (DRAM), the advancement of this technology is expected to cause a sensation in the next-generation computing market, where the demand for processing high-speed data greatly increases in core technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
