SK hynix Inc. announced to present cutting-edge technology for high-performance memory products, crucial for the future AI infrastructure, during CES 2024. The event, recognized as the most impactful in the tech world, is scheduled to occur from January 9th to the 12th in Las Vegas.
SK hynix revealed that it will highlight its future vision represented by its Memory Centric* at the show and promote the importance of memory products accelerating technological innovation in the AI era and its competitiveness in the global memory markets.
The company will run a space titled SK Wonderland jointly with other major SK Group affiliates including SK Inc., SK Innovation and SK Telecom, and showcase its major AI memory products including HBM3E.
SK hynix plans to provide HBM3E, the world’s best-performing memory product that it successfully developed in August, to the world’s largest AI technology companies by starting mass production from the first half of 2024.
At SK Group’s space with an amusement-park theme, SK hynix will display an AI Fortuneteller where the generative AI technology based on HBM3E is applied. The AI fortuneteller is expected to give visitors fresh fun by creating an image of their cartoon characters based on their own faces and reading New Year fortunes.
SK hynix’s leading AI technology will also be displayed at the SK ICT Family Demo Room jointly run by other SK ICT companies. The company will showcase Compute Express Link(CXL**), next-generation interface, a test product of Computational Memory Solution(CMS), memory solution that integrates the computational functions of CXL, and Accelerator-in-Memory based Accelerator(AiMX***), a processing-in-memory chip-based accelerator card with low-cost and high-efficiency for generative AI.
Particularly, CXL memory, along with HBM, is one of the core products in the limelight with the rise of AI technology. SK hynix plans to commercialize 96GB and 128GB CXL 2.0 memory solutions based on DDR5 in the second half for shipments to AI customers.
“We are thrilled to showcase our technology, which has risen to the core of the AI infrastructure in the U.S., home to AI technology,” said Justin Kim, President (Head of AI Infra) at SK hynix. “SK hynix will step up its efforts for collaboration with global players, while seeking to accelerate a turnaround in business with its leadership in the AI memory space.”
