Dell Announces CAMM DDR5 Memory for its New Precision Laptops

Dell has unveiled its latest memory form factor for DDR5 technology. The CAMM stands for Compression Attached Memory Module and according to Dell, these new modules will be 57% thinner compared to SO-DIMM’s traditional modules. Interestingly, the CAMM is double-sided and can hold a whopping 128 GB of memory. This is a pleasant change from traditional workstation laptops, which tend to run out of memory.

The traditional SODIMM modules we know currently use 32 GB of DDR5 memory each. It only seems fair and logical that customers looking to buy a new workstation laptop now will opt for Dell’s precision laptops powered by CAMM technology. These units come with 128 GB CAMM modules.

According to PCWorld, this new form factor for DDR5 memory is not owned by Dell. While the company is largely behind the design of the new module and has also patented it, we know that the Senior Distinguished Engineer at Dell believes it should soon be an industry standard. Dell has also confirmed that they are not the ones building these CAMM modules, in fact they are partnering with other memory companies including Intel.

Wccftech also picked up the CAMM module. They have posted real-life images of these modules, which can be seen full of DDR5 chips on both sides. The modules with 128 GB and 64 GB memory capacities have chips on both sides, while the modules with 32 GB and 16 GB are single-sided.
