Rambus Advances AI/ML Performance with 8.4 Gbps HBM3-Ready Memory Subsystem

  • Provides HBM3-ready memory subsystem solution consisting of fully-integrated PHY and digital controller
  • Supports data rates up to 8.4 Gigabits per second (Gbps), enabling terabyte-scale bandwidth accelerators for artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) and high-performance computing (HPC) applications
  • Leverages market-leading HBM2/2E experience and installed-base to speed implementation of customer designs using next-generation HBM3 memory

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS), a premier chip and silicon IP provider making data faster and safer, today announced the Rambus HBM3-ready memory interface subsystem consisting of a fully-integrated PHY and digital controller. Supporting breakthrough data rates of up to 8.4 Gbps, the solution can deliver over a terabyte per second of bandwidth, more than double that of high-end HBM2E memory subsystems. With a market-leading position in HBM2/2E memory interface deployments, Rambus is ideally suited to enable customers’ implementations of accelerators using next-generation HBM3 memory.
