SK hynix Develops World’s Best Performing HBM3E, Provides Samples to Customer for Performance Evaluation

SK hynix Inc. announced today the successful development of HBM3E, the next-generation of the highest-specification DRAM for AI applications currently available. The company is currently undergoing a customer evaluation of samples.

HBM3E not only meets the industry’s highest standards of speed, but also excels in capacity, heat dissipation, and user-friendliness. With a processing speed of up to 1.15 terabytes per second, HBM3E can handle data equivalent to more than 230 Full-HD movies of 5GB each in just one second.

In addition, HBM3E incorporates the technology of Advanced Mass Reflow Molded Underfill (MR-MUF), resulting in a 10% improvement in heat dissipation. It also offers backward compatibility, allowing for easy adoption onto existing systems without the need for design or structure modifications.

“We have a long history of working with SK hynix on High Bandwidth Memory for leading edge accelerated computing solutions,” said Ian Buck, Vice President of Hyperscale and HPC Computing at nVidia. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration with HBM3E to deliver the next generation of AI computing.”

Sungsoo Ryu, Head of DRAM Product Planning at SK hynix, emphasized that the development of HBM3E strengthens the company’s market leadership and enhances the completeness of their HBM product lineup. As the demand for AI technology continues to grow, SK hynix aims to increase the supply share of high-value HBM products and achieve a fast business turnaround.

This latest development from SK hynix showcases their commitment to driving AI tech innovation with industry-leading performance. With the launch of HBM3E in 1H24, SK hynix solidifies its unrivaled leadership in the AI memory market, building on the success of HBM3. The expansion of HBM3E supply, following the industry’s largest scale of mass production of HBM, will further accelerate business growth.
