Samsung 40nm 2-Gigabit DDR3 Memory Chip


Samsung has just announced that it has started mass production of the industry’s first 2-Gigabit (Gb) DDR3 devices using 40nm class process technology. The 40nm production process offers a 60 percent increase in production productivity over use of a 50nm process. Samsung will use the new 2-Gigabit DDR3 memory chip to produce 16GB, 8GB and 4GB RDIMMs for servers as well as UDIMM for desktop PCs and SODIMMs for notebooks pf up to 4GB.

The energy-efficient 2-Gigabit chip supports a data rate of up to 1.6 gigabits per second (Gbps) at 1.35 volts.
