First low-profile DDR4 memory released in Japan
Low-profile memory has become rather popular lately because it offers the same features and speed as regular-sized memory, yet it needs less space and eases the cooling process inside any PC case. That’s why a few years ago we saw low-profile DDR3 memory and since DDR4 was released a few months ago it was natural to see low-profile DDR4 sometime down the road.
Well, we now have it. A Japanese company that goes by the name of Century Micro has launched the first ever low-profile DDR4 memory. The model name is CK4GX4-D4RE2133VL81 and every memory stick is just 1.87 cm tall. The new memory line uses DRAM chips made by SK Hynix and offers JEDEC-specified speed of 2133 MHz at 15-15-15 timings and 1.2V DRAM voltage.
The new memory is now on the market in Japan where it sells for around USD 428 including taxes.
