DRAM ready for summer
Samsung announced the introduction of 30-nm DDR3 DRAM modules for PC upgrades.

This new generation of faster, more energy efficient DRAM modules will be available through consumer retail channels this summer. Reid Sullivan, senior vice president of mobile entertainment marketing said his outfit's 30nm-class process technology was an outstanding combination of advanced low-power DDR3 technology, with blazing speed up to 1,600Mbps.

Samsung’s new DDR3 DRAM modules are available in 2 and 4 gigabyte capacities, in UDIMM configurations for desktop PCs, and small outline DIMM (SODIMM) configurations for notebook PCs. They are backwards compatible with systems designed for previous DDR3 and DDR2 memory and available in single or dual-pack quantities.

He claimed that the DRAM used two-thirds less energy than those manufactured with the industry-standard 60nm-class technology. This improvement in energy efficiency does not come at the expense of performance. The new modules transfer data at up to 1,600 Mbps, 20 percent faster than Samsung’s current 40nm-class generation of DDR3 DRAM.

Samsung’s new 30nm-class DDR3 DRAM modules will be available in the US Prices for single pack modules will range from less than $30 to less than $55; dual pack modules will range from less than $55 to less than $110.
