Micron Technology has introduced memory and storage innovations across its portfolio based on its industry-leading 176-layer NAND and 1α (1-alpha) DRAM technology, as well as the industry’s first Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 3.1 solution for automotive applications.
Micron President and CEO Sanjay Mehrotra made the announcements during a Computex keynote, in which he shared a sweeping vision for computing innovation and the central role memory and storage play in enabling enterprises to seize the full potential of the data economy.
“As artificial intelligence and 5G reach mainstream deployment, they are creating dramatic new potential for data in the post-pandemic world,” Mehrotra said. “This transformation presents an opportunity for accelerating innovation to address customer needs. Today we are debuting new memory and storage solutions that accelerate innovation, from powerful data center servers and faster client devices to intelligent vehicles at the edge.”
“AMD was first to adopt PCIe 4.0 desktop processor and chipset support. As the ecosystem of AMD-supported platforms continues to grow, we are delighted to see partners like Micron expand their Gen4 SSD portfolio,” said Chris Kilburn, corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Client Component Business Unit at AMD. “In partnership with leading memory and storage companies like Micron, we are committed to delivering new levels of performance and efficiency to the PC market.”
The new portfolio additions deliver on the company’s vision of accelerating data-driven insights through innovations in memory and storage that enable new capabilities from the data center to the intelligent edge.
Micron announced volume delivery of its first PCIe Gen4 solid-state drives (SSDs) built with the world’s first 176-layer NAND. The company is also shipping the world’s first 1α node-based LPDDR4x DRAM this month.
Together, these latest releases reinforce Micron’s leadership position in both DRAM and NAND technology, established this year
Amid rising remote work and schooling trends, Micron has partnered closely with leading system providers around the globe to meet the soaring demand for PCs. These efforts include deep collaboration with the leading Taiwan OEM Acer on integrating 1α-based LPDDR4x and DDR4 into Acer systems.
