According to a report by the Korean media outlet Korea Herald, Intel plans to establish a research laboratory in Seoul, South Korea, in collaboration with Samsung and SK Hynix to promote the development of DRAM chips for data centers.
The data center development lab in Seoul will be completed and opened by the end of this year, and will mainly be responsible for the development of DDR5 DRAM memory technology for data centers.
At the Vision 2023 event, Intel also announced that it is setting up six more research facilities in the U.S., China, India, and Mexico to focus on the research and certification of server semiconductor chips.
Intel is also expanding its collaboration with Samsung and SK Hynix to test and evaluate the performance of next-generation memory products such as DDR5 and Compute Express Link.
As previously reported, SK Hynix recently announced that its 5th generation 10nm process, 1bnm, has been validated for next-generation DDR5 and HBM3E solutions.
