Samsung DDR2 667 s Samsung True DDR2 667 Memories In Production

Samsung Electronics today announced that it has begun mass
producing 667 Mbps DDR2 (Double Data Rate 2) DRAM memory. Designed for faster
data transfer in desktop and notebook PCs, workstations and servers, DDR2-667
has 25 percent greater bandwidth than the fastest main memory available today.
The new Samsung DDR2-667 Mbps device will optimize performance in both
single-core and new dual-core processors. "We’ve been the clear leader in
state-of-the-art, DDR2 solutions, having delivered hundreds of millions of DDR2
components since we initiated volume shipments last April," said Tom Quinn,
senior vice president, memory sales and marketing, Samsung Semiconductor. "We’re
driving the production of our 667 Mbps devices using our 90 nanometer process
technology on 300mm wafers."

In addition to increased system performance, DDR2-667 also will provide
additional benefit to the notebook market because it offers 30 percent less
power consumption than DDR400. Samsung’s DDR2-667 is available now in 256Mb and
512Mb versions. A 1 Gb version is expected late this year. Late last year,
research analyst iSuppli Corporation projected that the DDR2 market will grow
from 35 percent of total DRAM production this year to 68 percent in 2006.
