SK hynix announced that DDR5 and CXL solutions have been validated by AMD for EPYC 9004 series processors

Recently, AMD held a themed event called “Together We Advance Data Centers” in California, USA, and officially released the fourth-generation EPYC server processor based on the Zen 4 architecture, code-named Genoa. The fourth-generation EPYC server processors use the new SP5 socket, offering innovative technologies and features, including DDR5 and CXL 1.1+, among others.

SK hynix announced that it has cooperated closely with AMD to provide fully compatible DDR5 and CXL solutions for EPYC 9004 series server processors, which have been verified by AMD. In addition, SK hynix is ​​also testing the stability of PCIe 5.0 connections with AMD on the fourth-generation EPYC server processor reference architecture, so as to provide high-performance PCIe 5.0 NVMe solutions in the future to respond to the needs of today’s AI and ML application market.

SK hynix provides 1y nm, 1a nm 16 Gb DDR5 DRAM modules, and 1a nm 24Gb DDR5 DRAM modules, which can support 4800 Mbps on the fourth-generation EPYC server processor, and provides 50% more memory bandwidth than existing DDR4 products. SK hynix also offers CXL memory, a 96GB capacity product built on 1a nm 24Gb DDR5 DRAM modules to provide customers with high satisfaction, flexible configuration of bandwidth and capacity, and cost-effective expansion.
The collaboration with AMD will strengthen SK hynix’s position as a memory solution provider in the server market,” said Sungsoo Ryu, Head of DRAM Product Planning and Enabling at SK hynix. “The latest AMD EPYC Processor will pave the way for our new server memory interface – DDR5 and CXL – to deliver exceptional performance to the market.
