The other day, the global Lexar website announced the entry into the DRAM market. A few years ago, Micron sold the Lexar brand to Longsys, the largest Chinese flash manufacturer. In the West, Lexar is still held in high esteem and the Chinese have not lost. Moreover, the Lexar brand began to be used as a springboard for launching Chinese 3D NAND chips on the Chinese SSD market, and now it seems to also sell DRAM memory on Chinese chips.
Lexar currently offers DDR4-2666 memory modules for laptops (SODIMM) and desktop PCs (UDIMM). The company does not inform about timings of new products, but promises increased performance with a supply voltage of 1.2 V. The memory is offered in modules with a capacity of 4, 8, 16 and 32 GB. The recommended cost of the company Lexar DDR4-2666 SODIMM will be, respectively, $ 20, $ 30, $ 65 and $ 160. The price for the Platinum Micro Series memory slats is $ 33, $ 65, and $ 150. 4GB modules for desktop are not provided.
Lexar DDR4-2666 SODIMMs can already be purchased, and Lexar Platinum Micro DDR4-2666 UDIMMs will be available for purchase during July. By the end of the year, Lexar promises to additionally release high-performance memory modules, but so far without details.
It should be noted that the images on Lexar memory modules do not have identification marks indicating the Chinese origin of DDR4 memory chips. But even if they are not there now, in the near future they will certainly appear there.
