“Samsung’s 30nm-class Green DDR3 DRAM technology was selected as we wanted to use the most energy efficient DRAM technology, available in the high-end market from a single supplier we could trust”
MUNICH & GARCHING, Germany, July 24 (Whowired)--Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced that the newly introduced SuperMUC at Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, one of the most energy-efficient x86-only systems in the world*, uses 324 terabytes of 30 nanometer (nm) class** Samsung Green DDR3 memory to take full advantage of industry-proven, highly reliable Samsung memory technology.
“By deploying 30nm-class Green DDR3 DRAM in SuperMUC, Samsung is embracing closer technical cooperation with the world’s leading supercomputing centers such as the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, ensuring maximized economic efficiency with higher performance and low power consumption in a supercomputing and HPC (High Performance Computing) environment,” said Yunshik Kim, president of Samsung Semiconductor Europe. “Taking into consideration that the energy consumption in IT systems increased by another 18 percent in 2011 and that, by now, server operational costs already exceed their acquisition cost, the choice of energy-efficient components and modules is becoming critically important. Samsung once more emphasizes that the selection of eco-friendly Green Memory technology can simply reduce system power consumption by more than 20 percent.”
“Samsung’s 30nm-class Green DDR3 DRAM technology was selected as we wanted to use the most energy efficient DRAM technology, available in the high-end market from a single supplier we could trust,” added Dr. Herbert Huber, Head of High Performance Systems Division at Leibniz Supercomputing Centre.
The extremely energy-efficient SuperMUC is an IBM System x iDataPlex dx360 M4® server using more than 18,000 Intel® Xeon® CPUs and over 80,000 4GB Green DDR3 modules from Samsung. It is currently the most powerful supercomputer system in Europe, the fastest x86 supercomputer in the world and ranks fourth on the worldwide Top500 list (www.top500.org) of supercomputers. With 100 percent deployment of Samsung Green DDR3 DRAM in combination with IBM’s innovative direct warm water cooling technologies, SuperMUC requires only 3.52 megawatts of power consumption and reduces dramatically the total cost of ownership as well as the environmental footprint.
Samsung has been leading the advancement of DRAM technology ever since it developed the industry’s first DDR DRAM in 1997. It introduced the first DDR2 DRAM in 2001, the first DDR3 DRAM using 80nm-class** technology in 2005, and the first DDR4 DRAM using 30nm-class technology in 2010.
