Dell has announced its new RAM CAMM (Compression Attached Memory Module) solution to create a thinner profile in laptops. The CAMM solution is 57 percent thinner.
Both manufacturers and chip designers have developed various methods to make laptops thinner. When it comes to mobile processors, mobile video cards, thin SSDs, RAM is also different.
What is CAMM memory?
The new RAM module technology called CAMM (Compression Attached Memory Module), introduced by Dell, is 57% thinner than traditional SODIMM models and can accommodate up to 128 GB of capacity in these thin drives.
In the CAMM module, multiple memory membranes are assembled on a single circuit board and the module is located on a single side. Memory capacities ranging from 16 GB DDR5 to 128 GB DDR5 are used.
Each board is connected to the motherboard via a CAMM compression connector. Again, each module has its own programmable memory circuit board. CAMM modules can also include SODIMM connections if a standard connection is required. Because CAMM technology is very new, it is far from being widely used at the moment. It will progress as other PC manufacturers adopt it. It will be used primarily in Dell Precision 7770 and 7760 performance laptops.
