Today memory is one of the most important components in a PC or CE device. Suffice to say, memory matters. Yet many users don’t realize the extent to which memory contributes to overall performance and battery life, and therein, an optimal customer satisfaction experience.
Memory matters for a few reasons:
1) Having more of it – increased quantities – permits greater overall operational efficiency as it allows complex operating systems to function smoothly and more consumer applications to be loaded.
2) Having higher capacities provides even greater efficiency when more memory is available per slot as data can be transferred faster with less delays.
3) It’s moving to lower process geometries – allowing the advent of even smaller CE devices, improved cost effectiveness and reduced power in attaining higher performance.
4) Lower power consumption permits greater energy efficiency and therein, reduced energy costs for servers and longer battery life for notebooks.
Consumers benefit sizably from OEMs selecting more energy efficient, higher capacity, lower nanometer-class memory. The more they realize this, the greater the likelihood that OEMs will configure with higher quantities of the most advanced memory per system. Pure and simple, systems will run faster, better and longer.
You might say that’s why I’m even in the memory business – because memory matters a lot and more memory matters even more. At Samsung, we produce more memory (DRAM, NAND flash and Graphics memory) than anyone else in the world and we generally introduce technological advances faster than anyone else. But those are topics for another blog in the future if there’s sufficient interest out there. I’m listening.
