Samsung begins producing 60nm DRAM

60nm DRAM in production

Samsung has begun mass production of 60nm DRAM memory, beginning with 1GB DDR2 chips. The advantage to the design is production efficiency, which should create greater yields, possibly decreasing the cost of DRAM in general. Samsung estimates that the 60nm technique should be 40 percent more efficient than current 80nm processes, and 50 percent better than 90nm "general process" technology. What may keep prices from going down, however, is Windows Vista -- the high-end editions require 1GB of DRAM, which could create enough demand to meet the new supply. The new chips should become standard in 2008, with chips 50nm and smaller already in development.
