Samsung Electronics Introduces New High Bandwidth Memory Technology Tailored to Data Centers, Graphic Applications, and AI

Samsung showcases its technology leadership in premium DRAM products at NVIDIA GTC

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 19, 2019 — Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced its new High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2E) product at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) to deliver the highest DRAM performance levels for use in next-generation supercomputers, graphics systems, and artificial intelligence (AI).

The new solution, Flashbolt™, is the industry’s first HBM2E to deliver a 3.2 gigabits-per-second (Gbps) data transfer speed per pin, which is 33 percent faster than the previous-generation HBM2. Flashbolt has a density of 16Gb per die, double the capacity of the previous generation. With these improvements, a single Samsung HBM2E package will offer a 410 gigabytes-per-second (GBps) data bandwidth and 16GB of memory.
