Samsung begins mass producing 8GB DDR3 notebook modules

Samsung memory tech based on 40nm processes

Samsung has announced that it has begun pass producing 8GB DDR3 memory modules based on the SODIMM form-factor used by many notebooks and mobile workstations. The modules are based on four-gigabit, 40 nanometer-class DDR3 memory chips operating at 1,333MHz while using 1.5 volts of power.

A single 8GB DDR3 module using the new technology is claimed to offer a 53 percent power savings compared to two 4GB DDR3 modules, and a 67 percent power savings compared to 1.8V DDR2 components.

Samsung has yet to announce retail pricing for individual components. The modules will be available as an option in Dell's Precision M6500 mobile workstation, which will fill four slots totaling 32GB of memory.

    I wonder...

    Can these be used in the i7 MacBook Pros?

    That would be a nice upgrade!

    This is great! I will like to see this on the new Macbooks release, and the RAM standard size going from 4Gb to 8Gb. But I am afraid they take this opportunity to sell the product even higher, especially in Europe. Just a thought!

    I will never buy

    I will never buy a computer with less than 8G of RAM again.

    Any of you here old enough to feel a nostalgic/futuristic absurdity in that sentence?
