Samsung has introduced the world’s first DRAM product featuring the new CXL 2.0 standard. The product is a 128GB DRAM chip designed for high-performance computing and servers. Developed in collaboration with Intel, the chip works with the Intel Xeon platform.

Samsung had earlier released a CXL 1.1 DRAM product in mid-2022, and the new DRAM builds upon that. The CXL 2.0 DRAM chip supports the PCIe 5.0 standard and offers a data transfer bandwidth of up to 35Gbps using x8 lanes. The new standard also supports memory pooling, allowing hosts to dynamically allocate memory pools based on their needs and requirements, increasing efficiency and reducing operating costs.

Samsung plans to start mass-producing the CXL 2.0 DRAM chips later this year, offering them in various sizes for high-performance computing and servers. The chips can improve bandwidth and capacity in a server's main DRAM, providing faster AI and ML performance.

Jangseok Choi, VP of the New Business Planning Team at Samsung Electronics, expressed Samsung's commitment to expanding the CXL ecosystem by collaborating with data center, server, and chipset companies across the industry.
