Samsung Electronics has announced that it has begun mass producing the industry’s first 1Gigabit DDR2 DRAM using 60 nanometer process technology. In its press release, Samsung estimates efficiency gains of the 60nm process are 40 percent over the 80nm, and twice the productivity of 90nm general process technology. Samsung’s line up of 60nm 1Gb DRAM-based modules includes 512MB, 1GB and 2GB densities supporting either 667Mbps or 800Mbps speeds. Samsung anticipates such a high degree of receptivity to the 60nm process that it should drive greater demand for 1Gb DRAM chips in the near future over today’s mainstream density of 512Mb.
