Samsung has issued a press release to announce its new range of small outline dual in-line memory modules (SoDIMMs). The modules are based on 10 nm-class process technology and offer 32 GB of double data rate 4 (DDR4) memory. Future high-end gaming-oriented laptop releases are the target devices for the new modules.

A press release published by Samsung has introduced the new 10 nm-class 32 GB DDR4 SoDIMMs that are aimed at gaming devices. Mass production has already started on the 32 GB module, which is apparently the first of its kind in the memory industry. According to the press statement, the new module is expected to offer “more capacity, higher speeds and lower energy consumption.”

Samsung offers up a comparison of the 32 GB SoDIMM with the company’s 20 nm-class 16 GB DDR4 module from 2014. Obviously, the new SoDIMM provides twice the capacity, but the South Korean tech giant also claims that the latest memory solution is 11% faster and delivers an energy-efficiency improvement of around 39%. The press release also expands on the 32 GB module’s power consumption benefits:

A 64GB laptop configured with two 32GB DDR4 modules consumes less than 4.6 watts (W) in active mode and less than 1.4W when idle. This reduces power usage by approximately 39 percent and over 25 percent, respectively, compared to today’s leading gaming-oriented laptops, which are equipped with 16GB modules.

The new memory modules are expected to assist computer manufacturers in developing more powerful gaming laptops. Gamers will likely be excited about the prospect of owning a device that potentially has the ability to reach a speed of up to 2,666 Mbit/s thanks to the inclusion of Samsung's 32 GB DDR4 modules.
