Intel announced its ambition to build the facility in South Korea at its Intel Vision 2023 presentation. In addition, the corporation intends to construct six other research sites in the United States, Taiwan, China, India, and Mexico.
Seoul’s data centre development laboratory will focus on memory technologies such as DDR5 DRAM research and certification. The Advanced Data Centre Development Lab, which will be based in Seoul, is expected to launch later this year. Aside from Seoul, other global laboratories will be used for server semiconductor research and certification.
Intel intends to extend its partnership with big firms such as Samsung and SK Hynix by utilising its extensive network of research facilities.
According to reports, Intel Korea is working with partners to test and assess the performance of its next-generation memory products, such as DDR5 and Compute Express Link.
Since the emergence of AI, markets have expanded at an unprecedented rate. NVIDIA’s successful use of hype and eventual admission to the trillion-dollar club is a prime example. Because of the growing demand for large data centres and the projected success of Intel’s Sapphire Rapids CPU family, the business is also attempting to follow in the footsteps of NVIDIA.
In terms of industry progress, SK Hynix recently revealed that its 5th Gen 10nm process, 1bnm, has undergone validation and will enable next-generation DDR5 and HBM3E products. According to the company, the Xeon Scalable platform has received Intel certification for supporting DDR5 products built on the 1bnm node.
Samsung has also begun mass production of their new 16B DDR5 DRAM, which will be manufactured on a 12nm technology node. These developments are projected to support market growth, particularly in applications such as data centres, artificial intelligence, and next-generation computing.
