The growing need for increased memory bandwidth and higher performance targets of next-generation computer systems creates a fundamental challenge for contemporary system architects. The CPUs strive for higher core count, improved per-core performance, and greater power efficiency. Advanced cores need sufficient memory bandwidth, whereas loads of such cores require high DRAM (Dynamic RAM) capacity and high bandwidth. New memory architectures beyond DDR4 are required to meet the next-generation bandwidth-per-core requirements. DDR5 memory is the perfect solution developed to solve the need for higher bandwidth, offering substantial improvements over previous DRAM generations.
