Samsung Makes 2gbit DDR3

Samsung on Tuesday said it had become the first company to mass produce 2 gigabit (256MB) DDR3 memory chips using a 40 nanometer manufacturing process. The smaller, higher-density technology lets the company produce significantly denser memory without raising power consumption or the cost: it will allow up to 16GB RAM sticks for servers and 4GB for notebooks, but should draw 1.35V and should let Samsung produce about 60 percent more memory at a given time than on its 50nm process, eventually lowering the price.

Each individual RAM chip also has about twice as much bandwidth as a typical 1 gigabit chip at 1.6 gigabits per second. Samsung hasn't said how soon the RAM will make its way into the marketplace or at what prices, though much of its memory is used for pre-assembled computers from major manufacturers.
