Samsung DDR4-3600 2nd Gen 10nm DRAM Chips Now In Production

21 December 2017

Samsung released its first-generation 10nm-class DRAM in February 2016.

This "aggressive" production expansion would "accommodate strong market demand", said Gyoyoung Jin, president of Memory Business at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung has begun mass producing the industry's first 2nd-generation of 10-nanometer class, 8-gigabit DDR4 DRAM.

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said on Wednesday it has developed the world's smallest DRAM chip, widening its technical lead on competitors as it tracks toward a record operating profit in 2017 driven by the semiconductor business.

With this upgradation, the company is now working to develop the next-Gen of DRAM which is expected to be based on the 8-nanometer class.

The RAM operates at 3,600 Mbps per pin as compared to the 3,200 Mbps on the previous generation. Productivity is up 30% on the new DDR4 RAM, meaning Samsung can make more chips, with yields improved above the last-gen DDR4. If history's any indication, it's highly likely that we'll see new products using Samsung's 2nd-generation DRAM in the near future.

The Electronics giant has said that these advancements will help the company accelerate its plans for faster introductions of next generation DRAM chips and systems including DDR5, HBM3, LPDDR5, and GDDR6 for use in mobile devices, enterprise servers, supercomputers, HPC systems and high-speed graphics cards.
